Corvette Racing at Lime Rock: Into the Arena

LAKEVILLE, Conn., July 20, 2010 – It’s been called a bull ring and a short track with hills, but perhaps Corvette Racing driver Oliver Gavin’s description of Lime Rock Park is the most accurate: “It’s like stepping into a gladiatorial arena.”

Gavin and his Corvette Racing teammates will take on the shortest circuit on the ALMS schedule when they contest the American Le Mans Northeast Grand Prix on Saturday, July 24.

With entries in four classes sharing the same ribbon of asphalt and lap times under one minute, the action promises to be fast and furious.
