    Gavin Moves In As Full Time Driver on Corvette Team


    1/9/2003

    In a surprising move, Corvette Racing has traded Oliver Gavin and Andy Pilgrim's place on the team. This past season Gavin joined the team for endurance races while Pilgrim drove the entire season, as he has since the inception of the Corvette program in 1999. For 2003, the two will reverse roles.

    The press release from General Motors listed that Pilgrim had been selected to be the Corvette Racing 50th Anniversary Program Representative. The release indicates that deu to that selection, Pilgrim would race only in the longer events, including the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring that will open the 2003 ALMS season.

    Oliver Gavin will now race the full schedule as a teammate to Kelly Collins in the #4 Corvette in place of Pilgrim. Pilgrim will join Gavin and Collins when he races.

    Ron Fellows, the GTS champion of the ALMS in 2003, will continue to co-drive with Johnny O’Connell in the #3 Corvette in most rounds of the ALMS. Franck Freon will join them for the longer races.

    In his new role with Corvette, Pilgrim will interact with the considerable Corvette dealer base, the Corvette Museum, Corvette clubs and special GM organized functions, which will celebrate the 50th anniversary on a national level.

    “Andy has a direct and extremely strong connection with our dealer and customer base,” said Gary Claudio, GM Racing, manager Motorsports Marketing. “There are several key events that Andy will play a critical role in, which will conflict with a few dates on the race schedule. Andy will adjust his driving schedule slightly to fulfill a larger role in the overall celebration of the Corvette.”

    Wow. I wonder if Kelly Collins was upset about that?
