There are a lot of reasons why Corvette Racing is one of the most loved teams in all forms of motorsport. Despite the indescribable intensity of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and all of the pressure everyone is under to perform at 100%, 100% of the time, they never, ever lose sight of why they race, and who they are racing for. MERCI BEAUCOUP AUX MANCEAUX. A heartfelt thank you to the people of Le Mans, and an equally heartfelt thank you to fans the world over.

  1. I went to Le mans race to watch the Corvettes in 06. It was absolutely awesome & I had a ball. Ended up having to stay at a B&B in St cosmo en Veris which is about 45 miles away and getting there was a rush also. No GPS. Fantastic people everywhere. My French isn’t that good but we ate well because the menus had pictures. I was forced ( not really) to spend two weeks in Paris to keep the wife happy. I’m ready to go back. Paris is unbelievably beautiful.
