1967 Corvette Le Mans Racer Serves as Inspiration for Monterey Reunion Poster

A 1967 Corvette that has a special place in the history of the 24 Hours of Le Mans has been chosen to be the poster art for this year’s Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion poster.

That car is the 1967 Corvette No. 9 raced by Corvette legends Dick Guldstrand and Bob Bondurant at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, where it hit speeds of 170mph-plus down Mulsanne Straight to take a big lead before mechanical woes forced it off the track.

1964 Corvette Supernova Racer Heading to Russo and Steele Monterey

By definition, a supernova is the explosion of a star during which the star’s luminosity can increase by up to 20 times and most of the star’s mass is blown away at a high velocity. By our definition, a Corvette racecar can explode around treacherous racing circuits at equally high velocities.

1969 BFG Stars & Stripes Corvette Racer Headed to RM's Monterey Auction

In 1971 Corvette racer and race car builder John Greenwood was approached by BF Goodrich tires to campaign two Corvettes competing on the company’s new Lifesaver Radial street tires. Three BFG Corvettes, wearing numbers 48, 49 and 50, were built for the campaign in FIA-sanctioned races including Le Mans, Daytona and Sebring.
