Corvette Racing managed to capture a second-place finish at the 24 Hours of Le Mans last month, but little did we know, their thunderous C7.R wasn’t the only Corvette Stingray present at the Circuit de la Sarthe. XCAR, known for their car review videos on YouTube, had the unique opportunity to take the 2014 Corvette Stingray out on the legendary French circuit for a few laps and luckily for us, they brought their camera along with them.
With the camera mounted directly behind host Drew Stearne’s head, we get a first-hand look at what it would be like to pilot the 460 horsepower Stingray around one of the most well-known and prestigious racetracks in all of Europe. It seems like quite the experience, with the wind in your hair and the 460 horsepower LT1 bellowing its deep V8 rumble as you drive on the same roads that famous names like Mario Andretti, Jacky Ickx and Jochen Mass have competed on. As you can imagine, we’re not jealous XCAR got to do this at all. Nope.
If you can manage, look past your envy and just enjoy the magnificent scenery in the video, because its probably the closest you will ever get to driving a Corvette at Le Mans.
