CORVETTE RACING AT LE MANS: Ride Along With the Corvette C7.R For 24 Hours

U.S. viewers can access in-car live streams, garage cam with FOX Sports online



DETROIT (June 11, 2014) – This year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans is the most anticipated one for Corvette Racing since the team’s debut there in 2000. It’s the first time at the Circuit de la Sarthe for the Chevrolet Corvette C7.R, and American fans can ride along with the team for the entirety of the race.



Three dedicated cameras will stream live video on FOXsports.com,

Streaming | 24 Hours of Le Mans On-Board Pass <em>Presented by Chevrolet</em> helping to highlight Corvette Racing’s massive undertaking in this year’s race. Each of the two Corvettes – the No. 73 and No. 74 Corvette C7.R – will sport in-car cameras from green flag to checkered flag. In addition, a fixed camera in the Corvette Racing garage will stream to the Web for the full 24 hours.



“This is a monumental year for Chevrolet and Corvette Racing at the 24 Hours of Le Mans,” said Jeff Chew, Chevrolet Racing’s Manager of Business Strategy and Operations. “The attention on the new Chevrolet Corvette C7.R has been staggering. That’s why we are pleased to offer our American fans a chance to follow our progress in one of racing’s most demanding challenges from start to finish.”



Antonio Garcia, Jan Magnussen and Jordan Taylor drive the No. 73 Corvette C7.R with Oliver Gavin, Tommy Milner and Richard Westbrook in the No. 74 Corvette. The two cars were fourth and sixth in the annual Test Day on June 1.
