Since the turn of the century, Corvette Racing has built quite a name for itself at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Seven wins at the race since 2001 will tend to do that for a team.

Hoping to add an eighth victory to that total in the 90th Anniversary 24 Hours of Le Mans on June 22-23 will be the same six drivers who anchored the Corvette Racing team a year ago.
