The team went out to the West Coast with No. 3 C7.R drivers Garcia and Magnussen leading the GTLM Drivers Championship with just two races to go. The defending GTLM champions had six consecutive podium finishes going into Laguna Seca, but so far a spot on the top as race winners has eluded the duo.
Hope were also high for the No. 4 Corvette C7.R team after Oliver Gavin picked up the GTLM pole during qualifying. Gavin has won four races at Laguna Seca and shared one of those wins in 2012 with Tommy Milner.
Mobil 1 the Grid was at Laguna Seca for the entire weekend and talked to the drivers and crew chiefs before, during and after the race.
