Corvette Racing fans in the Bowling Green, Ky area are in for a treat this week. On its way home from the Circuit of the Americas track in Austin, Texas, the Corvette Racing #3 C6.R race car will be making a two-hour appearance at the National Corvette Museum from 9:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m. CST on Thursday, December 20, 2012.
The Corvette #3 C6.R race car, driven by Jan Magnussen, Antonio Garcia and Jordan Taylor, was the 2012 Michelin Green X Challenge GT Team Champion car, finished 2nd in the 2012 American Petit Le Mans race and has received many other honors at various race events. It combines a sophisticated chassis as well as powertrain and aerodynamic technology developed by GM Racing with the advanced engineering of the sixth-generation Corvette, Corvette Z06, and Corvette ZR1 production models.
The 2012 season marks Corvette Racing's 14th year in international road racing. The two-car team made its competition debut in February 1999 in the Daytona 24-hour race, finishing third and 12th. From that modest start, Corvette Racing has become one of the world's most successful production sports car teams, winning eight consecutive ALMS GT1 manufacturers and team championships and seven straight ALMS GT1 drivers' titles.
