24 Hours of LeMans

#64 Corvette Out at the 24 Hours of Le Mans

by Keith Cornett on June 13, 2010

An inspiring run by Oliver Gavin in the #64 Corvettes looks all for naught as white smoke out of the Corvettes left-side exhaust signaled an end for this year’s 24 hours of Le Mans. Oliver had just run a 3:59.356 lap following 30 minutes in the garage to repair the Corvette after it when hard into the wall at the Porsche Curves. That crash dropped to class leading GT2 Corvette down to the 5th place.

Gavin was instructed to park the Corvette and he did so at the Musanne corner.
