In last weekend’s inaugural Baltimore Grand Prix, Corvette Racing managed a podium-worthy 3rd place finish with the No. 4 C6.R piloted by Olivier Gavin and Jan Magnussen and a 7th place finish with Olivier Beretta and Tommy Milner in the No. 3 C6.R after a brutal two-hour street race.
A grueling tone was set for the race immediately for Corvette Racing, when Magnussen found himself in 12th place after Turn 1, after starting 2nd. But after fighting back to 4th place after 22 laps, and a driver change after the first hour, Olivier Gavin was able to finish in a hard-fought 3rd place. Beretta suffered a spin-out during the middle of the race in the No. 3 car, which assisted in sealing the car’s seventh-place fate.
After the dust settled, Gavin and Magnussen found themselves locked in 2nd place in the GT class point standings with 99 points, which is substantially behind BMW’s Dirk Mueller and Joey Hand and their 124 points. Beretta and Milner are in 7th with 49.
The team’s next race is the six-hour ModSpace American Le Mans Series Monterey at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca on Saturday, September 17, at 1:30 PM Pacific Time.
