Although outgunned financially by the factory race team, Lou put up a great fight as a privateer and in his final GT2 race at Petit Le Mans, his LG Motorsports #28 Corvette qualified second in class and faster than Corvette Racing’s C6.Rs.

Corvette Racing Bruised in Sebring Disaster

Both cars had issues, and their fate was sealed when the #4 Corvette crashed into the #3 Corvette in pit lane. Although both Corvettes were able to get back out on the track, the lost time in the pits and garage cost the team 11 laps off the lead and consigned the #3 and 4 to 8th and 9th place finish respectively.
