The Corvette Racing team has been spending their time leading up to next weekend’s 24 Hours of Le Mans by practicing their pit stops and getting ready for different scenarios in order to keep the C7.Rs going the entire 24-hour race.
Here’s a couple quick videos from team photographer Richard Prince who captures the No.63 pit crew performing a rear brake system change. And we’re not talking just about getting a new set of brake pads. The C7.R receives new rotors, calipers, pads, brake lines and fluid in under 29 seconds. See if you can get that kind of performance down at the local Jiffy Lube.
Here’s the team doing another practice run with the perspective of being out on Pit Lane:
You may notice another team member also taking video of the pit crew performing the brake changes. Following the practice sessions, these videos will be reviewed as the team looks for improvements in each and every process that is performed during the brake changes with the goal of doing it faster and better than their competitors in LMGTE-Pro.
