In front of a nationally-televised audience on ABC, Corvette Racing finished second and third in GT Class action at the conclusion of the American Le Mans Series Orion Energy Systems 245 at Road America in Wisconsin. Antonio Garcia and Jan Magnussen combined their driving efforts to finish in second with the No. 3 C6.R, while Oliver Gavin and Tommy Milner, driving the No. 4 Compuware Corvette, finished third. And thus, Gavin and Milner now once again sit atop the GT Class driver standings, while teammates Garcia and Magnussen are in third (unofficially), just six points out of the championship lead.
Dominick Farnbacher and Marc Goossens won the GT battle ahead of the Corvettes in the No. 91 Viper GTS-R. It marks the first factory Viper win since the year 2000. However, Chevrolet and Corvette Racing is now on the verge of another manufacturer’s championship.
The next event for Corvette Racing is the Grand Prix of Baltimore on Aug. 30-31, right on the streets of Baltimore. Last year, Gavin and Milner placed second, and Gavin and Magnussen teamed for a third-place finish in 2011.
