Corvette Racing has final LeMans Warmup in Utah

May 19, 2008

While crusing around my favorite Corvette websites today, I stumbled on this video on CorvetteBlogger.com!

Johnny O’Connell and Jan Magnussen cruised to their third victory of the year at Sunday’s Utah Grand Prix at the Miller Motorsports Park outside of Salt Lake City. The #3 Corvette C6.R finished the two hour thirty minute race with a one-minute, 4.9-second victory over their #4 Corvette C6.R teammates Olivier Beretta and Oliver Gavin. O’Connell and Magnussen now hold an eight point lead (86-78) in the GT1 Drivers Championship.

This was a race that really wasn’t a race as the teams used the 3.048 road circuit as their final test and tune-up for next month’s 24 hours of Le Mans. Keeping the two Corvettes out of danger was the top priority and luckily they did just that. It was such a non-race that SPEED gave the Corvette Racing team just two and half minutes of direct coverage.
