Corvette Finishes Fourth in Class After Tough 24 Hours of Le Mans

Corvette Racing ninth class win at the 24 Hours of Le Mans will have to wait another year as the team could do no better than fourth in the GTE Pro class this weekend.

The whole event was a forgettable one for the ‘Vettes, which failed to qualify particularly well and struggled to keep up with the Ford GTs and the 911 RSRs (the latter coming in first and second, and the former finishing third). In fact, the ‘Vette only came in fourth technically, with another GT finishing the race in fourth before being given a time penalty, promoting the No. 63 Corvette into fourth place.

The fourth place C7.R was driven by Jan Magnussen, Antonio Garcia, and Mike Rockenfeller. Their teammates, meanwhile, were having a good race before engine troubled forced the No. 64 C7.R to retire.

That car, driven by Oliver Gavin, Tommy Milner, and Marcel Fassler was working its way through the pack when Gavin reported a front end issue. After Milner reported the same issue, the car was brought in for repairs before an engine issue ultimately ended their race.

Since this year was a bit of a bust for the Corvettes, enjoy this video from a more successful Le Mans campaign.
