Corvette Takes its Second 2007 American LeMans Series Race

Oliver Gavin and Olivier Beretta sailed to their second consecutive GT1 class victory of the season in their Corvette C6.R in St. Petersburg, Florida on Saturday. The "two Ollies" had a smooth run to the American Le Mans Series winner's circle in their No. 4 Compuware Corvette.

According to the Corvette Racing website: "My Corvette, my crew, and my teammate were perfect," said Beretta, who extended his record for ALMS career victories with his 30th win. "It was very important to stay out of trouble. There was a lot of traffic ahead and behind, and I had to always be careful of the walls. There were quite a lot of things to deal with at once, but that is all part of sports car racing."

The next event in the series will be April 14, 2007 at the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach.  Television coverage will again be on the Speed Channel.
