    When he said "it is not enough that I should win, all others must fail," I think it's safe to assume that Genghis Khan was talking about the Chevrolet C6.R. Not only did it win its class at Le Mans three times and come in second twice, it dominated the American Le Mans Series so badly that...

    Corvette Racing driver Oliver Gavin is hinting that Chevrolet is planning on doing something special with a new Corvette. But his vague hashtags make for a big mystery. The Corvette ZR1 is here, and since it hasn't set a Nurburgring time yet, then that's the obvious go-to choice. But take a...
