We know all about Corvette Racing’s close ties between the C7.R race car and the new 2015 Z06 street car. So it’s only fitting that following the team’s 8th class win at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the racing team and drivers gathered in Detroit to celebrate with Corvette Team members who design, engineer and build our Corvettes.
The event was only for Corvette Team members and was closed to the public. Thankfully, we got see some of the celebration from a number of photos shared by the racing team on various social media outlets which we are sharing below.
Corvette Racing showed this video which we posted last week that showed the adversary the team overcame to bring home their 8th trophy. Corvette Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter spoke to the group (and probably shared a graph or two) and I am sure Corvette Racing’s Program Manager Doug Fehan had a few words to say as well. Following the presentation, there was an autograph session which included a new Le Mans poster which will probably be available at the remaining TUDOR races.
Congratulations again to both Corvette Racing and all the Corvette Team members that made the new Corvettes a reality!
