CORVETTE RACING AT LE MANS
After six hours, the No. 74 Corvette C7.R
(BELOW) was out in front by 30sec, with its
sister car less than 90sec off the lead. Both had
taken a turn in the lead during the early going.
(LEFT) When it comes to pit stops, every
member of the Corvette Racing crew is a
well-drilled machine. But the guys really come
into their own if and when things start to go a
little off the grid. For the No. 73 C7.R, that came
in the form of a faulty air jack; for the No. 74,
a slipped alternator belt and gearbox oil leak
provided the unscheduled drama. (BELOW)
Oliver Gavin provides visuals on his ’Vette’s
handling. (BELOW LEFT) A brief moment of rest.
But the crew remains at constant readiness.
