Corvette Racing will be at Road Atlanta this weekend for the 22nd edition of Petit Le Mans. It’s the final race of the season for the squad and it’s also the final race under the factory colors for the Corvette C7.R race cars.

Petit Le Mans is always an exciting race and the old-school 2.5 mile track where the drivers will race into darkness always makes things interesting. Unfortunately, the Corvettes are out of contention for the Driver’s Championship after three wins in a row, but the team is still very motivated.

Our friends at Mobil 1 The Grid spoke with the four full-time drivers from Corvette Racing about Petit Le Mans, why it’s a special track, and what it takes to win. With the end coming for the C7.R, and perhaps a shakeup in drivers, this year’s Petit Le Mans will be a little more special than others.
