Corvette Racing Video Series Part 1: Moving Past the Laguna Seca Crash


Corvette Racing has just released the first part of a 12 part series, chronicling the team's build up and follow-through for the 2010 American Le Mans Series. The first video in the series doesn't waste any time dealing with Corvette Racing's crushing finale at Laguna Seca, where contact by one of the Flying Lizard Porsches sent driver Jan Magnussen into the wall, just seconds from the finish line. (see below).

Crew Chief Dan Binks expresses his anger, but says that the best way to avoid that situation in the future is to build a car that's so far out front, this problem won't occur. Corvette thinks they've got such a car, but this year the competition is even tougher, with the GT1 and GT2 classes amalgamated into a single GT class. Plus, for 2010 (like in 2009) the new C6.R is much more closely based on the street car and new for 2010 is a smaller 5.5-liter V8 engine.

We'll be sure to keep an eye on how the new car stacks up, with the 2010 ALMS Season beginning with the 12 Hours of Sebring, March 17-20.
