During this season’s coverage of the American Le Mans Series on ESPN, we have taken notice of the one minute segments detailing Corvette Racing and the technical transfer of the knowledge learned while racing and how its applied to production Corvettes. The Corvette Racing Tech Transfer segment that ran during this weekend’s Mid-Ohio Sports Car Challenge featured Corvette Racing’s Doug Fehan as he introduced the new 2012 Corvette Centennial Edition.
Doug takes the viewers through the talking points of the new special edition package that’s available on all 2012 Corvettes and we get various close-ups of the items he mentions. Doug then invites viewers to join the Chevy 100 year celebration by going online and voting for your favorite Chevrolet of all time at Chevy100.com. Of Course, Corvette is well represented in the first round of voting with a 1953, 1963 Split Window Coupe and the 2009 Corvette ZR1 to choose from. Listen to the Doctor and cast your vote for your favorite Chevy!
We recently went back through our DVR and grabbed the other Corvette Racing Tech Transfer segments from previous American Le mans races. At Lime Rock, the segment focused on the win at the 24 Hours of Le Mans and at Mosport we see the Mayor (and owner) of Mosport Ron Fellows talking about aerodynamics.
