[VIDEO] Mobil 1 The Grid: Meet Corvette Racing's Team Manager Ben Johnson

If it’s one thing we’ve learned over the course of Corvette Racing’s twenty years of competition, the people behind the scenes are as responsible for the success of the team as the drivers and crew themselves.

Our friends at Mobil 1 The Grid have another great installment where we get to learn more about the unsung heroes of Corvette Racing with the latest episode focusing on team manager Ben Johnson.

Ben Johnson is an integral part of Corvette Racing, ensuring that – in his role as Team Manager – the operation execute their plans and meets their targets on track. Mobil 1 The Grid spent time with Johnson to learn more about his duties, while also gathering the thoughts of Program Manager Doug Fehan, as well as drivers Oliver Gavin and Jan Magnussen on the key role he plays.

  1. I am a dedicated Corvette Racing fan. However I have been very disheartened by the results of the 2018 season, especially the lack of even 1 victory thus far. The C7R’s have been hopelessly outclassed in GTLM this season as witnessed by the recent results @ Monterey. Had the Ford GT’s not crashed out or broken Team Corvette would not have had even a podium finish! Speaking of Ben Johnson’s strategy, how was it possible for the class winner RLL BMW and the second place Porsche to go the last 45 minutes without a pit stop? Cheating? Or did Corvette Racing miscalculate theirs? Now running up to the finale @ Road America’s Petit LeMans, Corvette Racing is going to need a bushel full of luck to beat out Chip Gannasi’s Ford GTs for the championship. I wish them well. Yet if the C8R’s are not homolgated in time for the 2018 season, I’m afraid it will be in back of the pack for Corvette!

  2. I hear you Ken. BoP has actually been pretty good since the last change and the number 3 has a remarkable streak of podiums so they are due for a win. However, those rumors of the team running the C7.R for another year may be true based on the FIA WEC super schedule as well as some of the other rumors out there.
