Press Release:
DETROIT (May 31, 2018) – Le Mans. The mere mention of the name stirs the soul and emotion of anyone who has experienced one of the biggest motorsports events around the globe. It’s especially true for Corvette Racing and its following, with the world’s premier GT racing program back for the 19th consecutive year. Corvette Racing’s record at Le Mans is impressive, to say the least…

1: As in one team, one manufacturer and one model of car for 20 years: Corvette Racing, Chevrolet and the Chevrolet Corvette.
3: Generations of Corvette Racing entries since 2000 – Corvette C5-R (2000-04), Corvette C6.R (2005-13) and Corvette C7.R (2014-current).
3: Number of wins for the Corvette C5-R – 2001, 2002, 2004.
4: Number of wins for the Corvette C6.R – 2005, 2006, 2009, 2011.
4: Most years between Corvette Racing victories at Le Mans (2011 to 2015)
8: As in Chevrolet’s small-block V8. More than 100 million units have been sold worldwide and is the most successful engine in American motorsports.
8: Class victories at Corvette Racing at Le Mans – all since 2001.
9: Number of drivers who have won races at Le Mans for Corvette Racing – Olivier Beretta, Ron Fellows, Antonio Garcia, Oliver Gavin, Jan Magnussen, Tommy Milner, Johnny O’Connell, Scott Pruitt and Jordan Taylor.
12: Manufacturer Championships for Chevrolet and Corvette Racing since 2001.
16: Number of GT Le Mans wins in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship for Corvette Racing since the start of 2014. That’s the most of any manufacturer and team in GTLM.
19: Number of victories for Corvette Racing’s lineup at Le Mans.
Oliver Gavin: 5                    Jan Magnussen: 4             Antonio Garcia: 3
Marcel Fässler: 3                Tommy Milner: 2                Mike Rockenfeller: 2
21: Tracks at which Corvette Racing has won races – Baltimore, COTA, Canadian Tire Motorsport Park/Mosport, Daytona, Detroit, Houston, Laguna Seca, Le Mans, Lime Rock, Long Beach, Miami, Mid-Ohio, Portland, Road America, Road Atlanta, Sebring, Sonoma, St. Petersburg, Texas, Trois Rivieres and Utah.
107: Victories worldwide for Corvette Racing – 99 in North America and eight at Le Mans.
202: Event starts by Corvette Racing since 1999.
90,130.78: Number of racing miles completed by Corvette Racing in its 18 previous trips to Le Mans. That represents 10,698 laps and nearly four full trips around the Earth at its equator.
32,516: Pounds of air freight sent by Corvette Racing to Le Mans – parts, spares, supplies and other items. That doesn’t include the two Corvette race cars, a semi-rig and a spare car!
274,646.76: Total number of racing miles completed by Corvette Racing since its inception. To put that in perspective Apollo 13 – the longest manned spaceflight in history – covered “just” 248,655 miles.
