  • Corvette racing at watkins glen: Spoiler alert

    Press Release:
    Garcia, Magnussen score fourth straight GT Le Mans podium; No. 4 Corvette
    out early

    CORVETTE RACING AT WATKINS GLEN: Runner-Up Finish for No. 3 Corvette
    Garcia, Magnussen score fourth straight GT Le Mans podium; No. 4 Corvette
    out early

    WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (June 30, 2019) – Corvette Racing’s Antonio Garcia and
    Jan Magnussen finished on the podium for the fourth consecutive race in the
    IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship’s GT Le Mans (GTLM) class Sunday
    with a runner-up finish in the Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen.

    The No. 3 Mobil 1/SiriusXM Chevrolet Corvette C7.R finished just 0.452
    seconds behind the class-winning Porsche, and the Garcia/Magnussen duo
    claimed their third straight podium at Watkins Glen International. The day
    included an added bonus: Garcia and Magnussen are a single point of the GTLM
    Drivers’ Championship as they seek their third consecutive title.

    The news on the other side of the Corvette Racing garage wasn’t as good.
    Tommy Milner suffered contact and crashed on the opening lap in the No. 4
    Mobil 1/SiriusXM Corvette C7.R, ending the day for him and teammate Oliver

    The damage to the Corvette was extensive but the team will have the No. 4
    entry repaired for this week’s Mobil 1 Sports Car Grand Prix at Canadian
    Tire Motorsport Park. The Corvette Racing crew faced a similar rush job
    after a heavy crash at the 24 Hours of Le Mans forced the team to switch
    chassis for the No. 4 Corvette ahead of Watkins Glen.

    Down to one entry, the Corvette Racing team soldiered on and very nearly
    pulled off a storybook ending. Garcia and Magnussen led Sunday’s race four
    times but a call to pit ahead of a full-course yellow that never came
    seemingly put the No. 3 Corvette on the back foot to the end.

    Magnussen, making his 150th start for Corvette Racing, drove the middle
    three stints and gave the Corvette back to Garcia for the final two hours
    and 40 minutes. A final full-course yellow set the stage for the late-race
    charge from seventh to very nearly a long-awaited victory.

    There is little time to rest. Corvette Racing’s next event is the Mobil 1
    Sports Car Grand Prix on Sunday, July 7 from Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.

    can’t be super, super happy about the result. I think we had this race. We
    have such a strong field. We took one part of the strategy away thinking
    there would be a yellow when one didn’t come. The race was split then
    between half of the field and us. We could gain back some spots but when we
    restarted after the last yellow, we didn’t have track position. To be sixth
    or seventh in this field and try to win with an hour to go is tough. At the
    end of the day, we didn’t make it. It was a good call to top off the car on
    the last yellow to give me a chance to jump both Porsches at the end, but
    the big thing is that the winning Porsche was too far up the road. I don’t
    know what’s worse… ending up six or seven seconds off or three-tenths off. I
    think it hurts more to finish so close. But it’s good points and we’ll take

    SECOND IN GTLM: "We had a shot at it today, but we are just missing that
    last little bit. I am happy for the team and happy for the points. But it’s
    been awhile since our last win. We keep getting so close but it is getting
    hard to come up with excuses. We just need to go out there and do it… get
    that win. I am very happy with how the whole team performed. We could not
    have done much better. So we will just go on to Canadian Tire Motorsport
    Park, another fantastic track, and see if we can get a win there.”

    cliché, it’s how I feel… it’s disappointing and unnecessary. It was the
    first lap of the race and going side-by-side which should have been and is
    possible. Hindsight is 20-20. Knowing the Porsche didn’t check up enough to
    allow us to go two-wide… he said he gave some consideration but it wasn’t
    enough. I’d love to say we could rewind it, I’d give up the position and we’re
    still racing. And if he had given me a little more room than we’re also
    still racing, too. It’s these split-second decisions we have to make.
    Unfortunately I got penalized for someone’s small mistake - and that’s what
    it was: a small mistake that ended up a big problem for us. A big thanks
    again to Corvette for building such a strong car. But I feel bad for our
    Corvette Racing guys. We were here and ready to go racing, but we’ve had
    some really bad luck the last couple months. I feel bad they have to put in
    more hard work and a lot of hours to get the car ready for Canadian Tire
    Motorsport Park. But that’s our focus.”

        Fassler will be subbing for Milner this weekend due to a hand injury from Watkins Glen.

        DETROIT (July 2, 2019) – Marcel Fässler will drive for Corvette Racing this weekend at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park as a fill-in for crash on the opening lap Sunday at the Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen.

        As a result, Fässler will team with Gavin and make his first start at CTMP for the Mobil 1 Sports Car Grand Prix presented by Acura. It also will mark the first time Milner has missed an event for Corvette Racing since joining the program in 2011.
