Petit Le Mans Involves Corvette Racing Team on Saturday

With two races remaining in the 12-race American Le Mans Series, Corvette Racing Team drivers Oliver Gavin and Olivier Beretta hold a 32-point lead in the GT1 drivers championship over Johnny O’Connell and Jan Magnussen.  With bonus points on the line at Petit Le Mans in Braselton, Georgia this Saturday, even a third-place finish will clinch a third straight GT1 drivers’ title for Gavin and Beretta.  They’ll need to complete at least 70 percent of the race distance to score championship points.

The 10th running of Petit Le Mans, the 11th round of the 12-race ALMS series, will start at 11:15 a.m. ET on Saturday, October 6.  The 1,000-mile/10-hour race will be televised live on SPEED Channel from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 6:30 to 10 p.m. ET.
