[POLL] Do you Approve of Corvette Racing's 2011 Livery

Every year, Corvette Racing refreshes the design of the factory C6.Rs for the upcoming season. Some recent notables include the Jake Scrape and the reverse B-Pillar Jakes at Monterey. Fans, bored to death during the off-season, cite the annual unveiling of the livery as one of the things they look forward to. So yesterday’s sighting of the new 2011 Corvette Racing livery at the Sebring 2-day test burned up and down the intertubes and feedback is coming in. What we want to know from you is, do you approve?

Corvette Racing's Gavin to Race in Grand-Am in 2011

It appears that Oliver Gavin will have a couple of rides in 2011, assuming that he maintains his seat with Corvette Racing in the American Le Mans Series. Olly announced that he will be racing in the Grand Am/Rolex Series with Banner Racing’s Chevrolet Camaro. Gavin will share the No. 07 The Cool TV Camaro with Gunter Schaldach for the seven round series. Where the calendar conflicts with the ALMS, the C6.R driver expects ALMS races to take precedence.

Here’s a quick clip of the new Corvette C6.R chassis testing at Sebring on Monday. The matte black Compuware Corvette was joined on the track with the #3 Corvette C6.R. See photos and a couple more short videos on photobucket.

From Oliver Gavin’s Facebook page:
Just finished marathon day of testing at Sebring… Ran from 9am – 9pm…Stopped for 40mins at 6pm, Chateau Elan had a wedding…

From SEMA to Sebring, Jake Never Rests!

 

Corvette Racing Wins Petit Le Mans on Last Lap

Gavin, Magnussen and Collard Take Dramatic GT2 Win on Fumes as Ferrari Runs Dry on Final Lap

BRASELTON, Ga., Oct 2, 2010 – Corvette Racing concluded its first full season in the ultra-competitive GT2 category with a victory tonight in the 13th running of Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta. Going into the final lap, the No. 4 Compuware Corvette C6.R driven by Oliver Gavin was trailing Toni Vilander in the class-leading No. 62 Risi Competizione Ferrari by 10 seconds. With a low-fuel alarm flashing on his own instrument panel, Gavin watched incredulously as the Ferrari slowed on the back straight as it ran out of E85 fuel. Gavin then raced across the finish line 5.763 seconds ahead of the runner-up No. 01 Ferrari of Dominick Farnbacher, which also passed Vilander’s hapless Ferrari.
