This has been a magical year for Corvette Racing and the C7.R.

First they opened the season with a win at the Rolex 24 at Daytona and then followed that up with a win at the Twelve Hours of Sebring. Then it’s off to France for Corvette Racing’s most important race of the year. And when the odds looked stacked against them after losing the No.63 Corvette in a qualifying accident, the No.64 Corvette with drivers Gavin, Milner and Taylor stepped up and ran about the cleanest 24 hour race ever to win the GTE-Pro class at the 24 Hours at Le Mans.

All of the proceeds from the raffle of the Stingray, from Criswell Chevrolet, home of Corvette mega-salesman Mike Furman, will go to the Patty Pollatos Fund, an all-volunteer, non-profit charity in Frederick County, Maryland.
