After a grueling six hours of roller-coaster-like elevation changes and turns around the 2.238-mile, 11-turn circuit, Corvette Racing nabbed a 1-2 finished at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. The win builds off the team’s victory at Long Beach a month ago in California. Oliver Gavin and Tommy Milner, who piloted the No. 4 Compuware Corvette C6.R found themselves at the top of the podium, while Jan Magnussen and Antonio Garcia, piloting the sister No. 3 Compuware Corvette C6.R, took second.
Corvette Racing was able to fend off the BMW team, which finished 3-4 behind the ‘Vettes.
The duo of Gavin and Milner are now in first place in the GT driver standings and Corvette Racing now leads the manufacturers’ championship after three of 10 rounds. The next race for the team is the FIA World Endurance Championship’s 24 Hours of Le Mans on June 16-17
