After earning pole position, defending GT drivers champion and Corvette Racing’s Jan Magnussen stormed the No. 3 C7.R to victory this afternoon during Long Beach Grand Prix GT Le Mans Class action. Magnussen also won the event last year in the C6.R. Co-champion Antonio Garcia drove the opening stint.
Additionally, the dynamic duo of Oliver Gavin and Tommy Milner muscled the No. 4 C7.R to a third place finish in GTLM Class. BMW’s Mueller and Edwards came in second.
Up front in Prototype Class action, brothers Ricky and Jordan Taylor (Jordan will be driving Corvette Racing during the 24 Hours of Le Mans) came in second in their No. 10 Corvette DP race car. Jordan, the younger, was reeling in race leader Scott Pruett in the No. 1 Ford EcoBoost/Riley DP, posting lap times two seconds faster than Pruett’s, before the checkered flag signaled an end to the 100-minute race.
The next race of the Tudor United SportsCar Championship will be May 3-4, at the Monterey Grand Prix, at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca
