We were just missing that little bit.
Garcia began his race fourth and drove the opening 55 minutes nursing a knee injury.
From Lap 1, I went in the lead and every time I was in the car I was going for it instead of holding position.
Its easy to think about what.Everybody had such great team spirit, team harmony and everybody was pulling for that championship.The christmas minute to win it games for adults Dane entered the race sixth but gained a couple of positions before Garcia re-entered the race with 80 minutes left.The Corvette Racing engineers huddled in the pitlane and decided to let Garcia take a run at the then-second place.In the race we were fifth, then eighth, then sixth, and all over the place.Antonio garcia: Ive never won here, and I thought for sure we had a chance today.Im happy with the race and happy with how Jan drove.To be completely honest, Im a little bit disappointed, but it is what.The final stop was critical in that the Corvette Racing crew got him out ahead of one of his championship contenders who had pitted two laps earlier to hold on to second place and valuable points.It will take me a little bit to forget that mistake, but Im very happy for the whole team.It was just exceptional.
The team did a great job as usual.
The strategy, the way the guys worked together was just amazing.
Corvette will be staying at Road Atlanta for Michelin tire testing this week, most probably with the new mid-engine.R.
We changed strategies toward the end of my stint, but I was so happy with the car and where we were in the race.Milner had stopped from third only minutes later and rejoined fifth.With the #3 Corvette down in 8th position, the #67 Ford just had to finish 2nd or better to take the Team/Drivers championship away.We have great cars at Corvette Racing as always.If you want to jump straight into each generation, you can get there this way: C1: 19531962. .282 3,369, c8 Corvette Forums C8 Corvette (5 Viewing) General Technical Performance Aftermarket Discussions Other sections: 106 1,052 C7 Corvette Forums C7 Corvette (5 Viewing) General Technical Performance Aftermarket Discussions Other sections: 507 2,913 C7 Corvette - Facts Info Rumors (9 Viewing) The first.936 7,510 Corvette Babes!
