CORVETTE RACING AT COTA: Action Express Racing, Chevrolet Maintain Points Lead

Action Express Racing's Joao Barbosa and Christian Fittipaldi led the Corvette Daytona Prototype effort Saturday with a third-place finish in the Lone Star Le Mans event at Circuit of the Americas. The No. 5 Corvette DP finished on the podium for the third consecutive event as Chevrolet maintained its lead in the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship's Engine Manufacturer standings for Prototypes.

Returning to the site of a victory in last year's American Le Mans Series race, Corvette Racing aimed for a return to the GT Le Mans (GTLM) podium in the TUDOR Championship. An early charge by Antonio Garcia in the No. 3 Chevrolet Corvette C7.R at the start of the race raised hopes as the Spaniard moved from seventh to fifth in the opening laps.

The momentum couldn't continue, however, for the team's two Corvette C7.Rs. Garcia and Jan Magnussen finished ninth in GTLM, followed by the No. 4 Corvette C7.R of Oliver Gavin and Tommy Milner in 10th place.

Corvette Daytona Prototypes posted three of the five fastest laps in Prototype qualifying for the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship's Lone Star Le Mans race at Circuit of the Americas on Friday. Ricky Taylor from Wayne Taylor Racing and Action Express Racing's Christian Fittipaldi led the Corvette contingent in the TUDOR Championship's premier class.

The Dane - a winner a year ago with teammate Antonio Garcia at COTA in the American Le Mans Series - set a best lap of 2:04.847 (98.040 mph) to place seventh in the session. Magnussen will make his return to racing in the Corvette after he missed the most recent TUDOR Championship round at VIR as a precaution following a hard crash in a practice session.

There is plenty on the line for the race. Garcia leads the class Driver's championship standings as does the No. 3 Corvette in Team points. Chevrolet ranks second in Manufacturer points.

Oliver Gavin's best lap of 2:05.093 (97.847 mph) in the No. 4 Corvette C7.R placed him ninth in class. Gavin and teammate Tommy Milner entered COTA looking for a little redemption following last year's race - one that saw Milner lead early before their Corvette C6.R suffered a gearbox failure.
