    Toasting a decade of excellence for Corvette Racing

    (Posted 6/15, 7:00PM) Detroit. Corvette Racing closed out its run in the soon-to-be-phased-out GT1 class at the 24 Hours of Le Mans with another victory last weekend, its remarkable sixth win in ten years of competing in the French endurance classic. For the record, Corvette Racing has won the top GT class at Le Mans in 2001, 2002, 2004, 2005, 2006 and now 2009. This year Johnny O'Connell, Jan Magnussen and Antonio Garcia were the winning combination for Corvette Racing, completing 342 laps in their No. 63 Compuware Corvette C6.R - a full six laps ahead of its nearest competitor - the No. 73 Luc Alphand Aventures Corvette C6.R of Yann Clairay, Julien Jousse and Xavier Maassen. The second factory Corvette Racing team car, the No. 64 Compuware Corvette C6.R driven by Oliver Gavin, Olivier Beretta and Marcel Fassler was knocked out of the lead in GT1 - and the race - in the 22nd hour with transaxle problems. The two team cars had staged a furious battle with each other the whole way up until that point.
