Coming up this June 15-16th is the 24 Hours of Le Mans. It’s the most important race on Corvette Racing’s schedule and when you hear program manager Doug Fehan talk about the race in terms of sheer viewership, you’ll understand why Chevrolet spends its marketing dollars on racing instead of simply airing commercials in a race.
This year is also a milestone race for the team as they celebrate their 20th consecutive appearance at the French Classic. Not many teams have been able to have the longevity and success at the 24 Hours of Le Mans and so there is reason to celebrate on that fact alone.
But make no mistake that just showing up will be enough for this team. It’s been a couple of years since the C7.R has been in the winner’s circle and with the new C8.R on the horizon, it would be a fitting honor to retire the C7.R with a win.
From the Official YouTube Channel of the “24 Heures du Mans”:
