Corvette Racing's C6.Rs on the Streets of Baltimore!
by Keith Cornett
One of the benefits of the American Le Mans Series new television deal with ESPN is the ability to watch previous races and qualifying sessions from the ALMS video archive. Having missed Friday’s live ESPN3 feed, I pulled up a replay of the practice/qualifying session for the inaugural Baltimore Grand Prix and came across a couple of segments worth sharing.
Fifteen minutes prior to the start of qualifying, Milner and Magnussen took to the new street course for only the second time. ESPN’s cameras spend a good deal of time on the Corvettes during these warm-up laps and former driver Johnny O’Connell provides the narrative.
Following the race, I visited GM Racing’s media site to look at some of the photos taken by team photographer Richard Prince. This image of the number 4 Corvette going over the chicane on the front straight caught my eye in particular and is now my new desktop wallpaper.
