Oliver Gavin

#64 Corvette Out at the 24 Hours of Le Mans

by Keith Cornett on June 13, 2010

An inspiring run by Oliver Gavin in the #64 Corvettes looks all for naught as white smoke out of the Corvettes left-side exhaust signaled an end for this year’s 24 hours of Le Mans. Oliver had just run a 3:59.356 lap following 30 minutes in the garage to repair the Corvette after it when hard into the wall at the Porsche Curves. That crash dropped to class leading GT2 Corvette down to the 5th place.

Gavin was instructed to park the Corvette and he did so at the Musanne corner.

Gavin Narrates a Hot Lap of Sebring in the GT Corvette C6.R

by Keith Cornett on February 20, 2010


Here is a video of the new 5.5L GT Corvette C6.R running a hot lap around Sebring International Raceway during the teams recent practice session. Our friends at Bad Boy Vettes hooked up with driver Oliver Gavin to give us an inside look at what the driver is seeing and doing as he makes his way around the historic and very bumpy 3.7 mile 17-turn road course. OG makes it sound easy but try doing this for 12 hours with a full field of competitors. At least the drivers have something to look forward to as they round Turn 10!

The Corvette Racing team was at Road Atlanta for three days last week for tire testing. Oliver updates us on who was there and the process of picking tires for next year’s GT2 campaign. We also learn from the video that Jan Magnussen broke his tailbone in the accident with Jorg Bergmeister’s Porsche at Laguna Seca. The team is trying out a new seat to prevent that type of injury from occuring in the future.
