(LONG BEACH, Calif., April 19, 2013) – Corvette Racing returns to where its championship season in 2012 earned its first of four victories: The 1.968-mile, 11-turn Long Beach Street Circuit.
Oliver Gavin and Tommy Milner, co-drivers of the No. 4 Compuware Corvette C6.R, won at Long Beach last year en route to the Team and Driver championships. It was their first victory as a team, and Milner’s first victory in the American Le Mans Series.
This weekend the world’s most exotic racers and sports car manufacturers will face off on the streets of Long Beach in southern California. One of most popular stops in the ALMS, Long Beach is a 2 hour sprint through the city where one wrong move can have devastating consequences. Corvette Racing finished 1st and 4th in 2012 and the #4 Corvette C6.R is coming off a win at last month’s 12 Hours of Sebring. Can they repeat their success again this weekend?
