O’Connell/Magnussen Corvette Wins Lone Star Grand Prix

Once again, it was no surprise that Corvette took the GT1 Class win at the Lone Star Grand Prix in Houston on Saturday, but it wasn’t the two Ollies this time, but rather their Corvette Racing Team compadres, Johnny O’Connell and Jan Magnussen who got the win in the No. 3 car.

With both speed and good fortune on their side, Magnussen and O’Connell completed 138 laps and finished 50 seconds ahead of Oliver Gavin and Olivier Beretta in the No. 4 Compuware Corvette C6.R.

O’Connell notched his 26th career ALMS victory, putting him third on the series’ all-time winners list. Magnussen tallied his 12th ALMS win, becoming only the second driver to score at least one victory in every year since the series’ inception in 1999.

Corvette Racing’s next event is the Utah Grand Prix at Miller Motorsports Park near Salt Lake City on Saturday, May 19.
