The recent 2023 running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans was full of exciting racing and historic moments, including participation by the Garage 56 Chevy Camaro ZL1 racing machine, which brought a taste of NASCAR to the iconic endurance race via the Innovative Car Class. Although the Garage 56 Chevy Camaro ZL1 wasn’t competing for points, its thunderous presence was surely enjoyed by those in attendance, delivering a firsthand experience of North American stock car racing to European motorsport fans. Now, we’re taking another look at the Garage 56 Chevy Camaro ZL1 at Le Mans with the following race footage compilation.
The footage includes video captured from a variety of different sources, including professional media outfits, onboard cameras, as well as trackside fans. Seeing the NASCAR Chevy Camaro attack the world-famous Circuit de la Sarthe in France is a real treat, as is seeing it pass some of the GT cars as its V8 engine roars. The video compilation also includes several shots of the pit crew working to refuel the Chevy Camaro and throw on fresh rubber.
As GM Authority covered previously, the No. 24 Chevy Camaro was piloted by an all-star lineup of drivers, including NASCAR Cup Series Champion Jimmie Johnson, Le Mans champion Mike Rockenfeller, and Formula 1 champion Jensen Button. IMSA driver Jordan Taylor was in reserve as backup driver.
Although the Garage 56 Chevy Camaro ZL1 wasn’t competing for points, it still performed quite well, finishing 39th overall in the 62-car field. The No. 24 Chevy Camaro also covered a distance more than triple that of the longest Cup Series race, which is 600 miles.
