LE MANS VIEWING PARTY

Attention GT and Prototype Race Fans of ALL Marques!

On June 13-14, the world's greatest car manufacturers will battle at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Through special arrangement with the ACO, three locations outside of France will be given commercial-free, direct feed of the race... Berlin, Tokyo and Bowling Green, Kentucky at the National Corvette Museum.

We are planning to show the race on our giant screen in the Chevrolet Theatre, with live timing and scoring, refreshments during the entire 24 hours, private Skypes hourly from the Corvette Racing team and door prizes. We think this will be the next best thing to being there yourself!

CORVETTE RACING AT LAGUNA SECA: Going for Fourth Straight Monterey Win

Corvette Racing's two-race California swing wraps up this weekend at a place where the team has found considerable success in the last decade. Mazda Raceway Laguna plays host to the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship's fourth round, the Continental Tire Monterey Grand Prix, and the last event before the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Corvette Racing has seven victories at the 2.238-mile, 11-turn layout since 2004. The span covers the American Le Mans Series from 2004-13 and the TUDOR Championship, which made Laguna Seca part of its inaugural schedule in 2014.

Corvette Racing will field its two Chevrolet Corvette C7.Rs in Sunday's two-hour, 40-minute race for all four classes of the TUDOR Championship. It's a change from last year's format that saw a two-hour race for just the Prototype and GT Le Mans (GTLM) categories.

CORVETTE RACING AT SEBRING: Post-Race Quotes

ANTONIO GARCIA, NO. 3 CHEVROLET CORVETTE C7.R

WHAT WAS THE KEY TO GETTING THIS WIN?
"I don't know. I think strategy was a key thing here. I mean we definitely didn't have the fastest car out there, but consistency was the key thing. We were making out of pressure on them. Even though we were not able to be in the lead and pull away like at Daytona, we were hammering them. We didn't want them to bail or just to take it easy. Maybe that is why they catch some problems, but at the end strategy was the key thing. Maybe they run into problems, but they had to stop anyway. So, Corvette Racing again strategy was brilliant. Pretty happy for these two guys and two in a row I can't say more."

CORVETTE RACING AT SEBRING: EIGHT-HOUR QUOTES

OLIVER GAVIN, CORVETTE RACING CHEVROLET CORVETTE C7.R: "The car was better and we seemed like we hit it a little better. We got a clean run with some traffic and could fight with the BMW and overtake them. There is still a long way to go. It was very hard in the heat of the day and with all the sun to try and make the tire last. There is still plenty that can still happen over the next few hours. We'll see how it goes with Tommy in the car. We seem to be working the rear tire quite hard - harder than the sister car - which is quite frustrating. We'll see where we are in the last couple hours. Hopefully if this stays we'll be able to fight at the front."

CORVETTE RACING AT SEBRING: FOUR-HOUR QUOTES

ANTONIO GARCIA, CORVETTE RACING NO. 3 CHEVROLET CORVETTE C7.R: "The Porsches seem to be really strong. What they showed in qualifying they are still showing in race pace. Now we're going into a different period of the race where the track will be completely different. So far the car is behaving how we expected. It feels like the car is slowly coming to us. We need to stay where we are and keep pushing but not do anything crazy out there. If we can find just a little bit more from the car, it will be great."

CORVETTE RACING AT DAYTONA: Post-Race Quotes

ANTONIO GARCIA, NO. 3 CORVETTE RACING CHEVROLET CORVETTE C7.R - GTLM WINNER

WHEN THAT YELLOW FLAG CAME OUT, YOU KNEW YOU WERE GOING TO HAVE TO FIGHT. WHAT WAS GOING THROUGH YOUR MIND?

"I knew that yellow was coming. I don't know how many races we actually won last year. There was that one at Watkins Glen and a few more. I just can't thank the whole team and Corvette fans enough and Corvette Racing and all the guys and these two drivers (teammates). We all did amazing. We stayed out of trouble. The car is in perfect shape. Not a single touch. I think that's what it takes just to keep it alive and bring it home in one piece, that's the thing. So, again, finally I get this watch and I think these guys were waiting a few years for that (laughs).
