Corvette Racing at Le Mans: Two Corvettes Confirmed for June Race

DETROIT (Feb. 5, 2016) – On the heels of a historic 1-2 class finish in the Rolex 24 At Daytona, Corvette Racing learned today that its two Chevrolet Corvette C7.Rs have been invited to this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans. It is the 17th consecutive season that two entries for Corvette Racing are part of the entry list for one of the world’s greatest motorsports events.

A parked Corvette is at the center of a controversy involving a drunk driver and a citizen who held him at gunpoint until police arrived.

It all happened around 7:45 p.m. on Jan. 25 in Petaluma, Calif., when Joe Clayworth looked out the second-story window of his home to see a large truck drive over the hood of a parked C4 Corvette and hit the fence of his South McDowell Boulevard home.

Hendrick, of course, is well known for buying the first production models of new generations of Corvettes and Camaros, but last week he took a turn toward the No. 1s of the past, buying a trio of VIN 001 Collection of Corvettes from 1955, 1956, and 1957 for a cool $1.65 million during the Barrett-Jackson Auction in Scottsdale, Ariz.

[PICS] Track-Prepped C7 Corvette Z06 on Forgeline GA1R Monoblock Wheels

When choosing a set of aftermarket wheels, it’s always important to know and keep in mind the purpose for making your wheels purchase. A boulevard cruiser may want to add chrome or bling to their rides, while owners who plan to go racing opt for form, function and weight savings.

In the case of this weaponized C7 Corvette Z06 that has been set up for the track, the owner chose Forgeline Wheels and a set of their GA1R open lug monoblock wheels.
