Facts and figures ahead of this weekend's race


CORVETTE RACING AT LE MANS: By the Numbers

• 1: As in one team, one manufacturer and one model of car for 21
appearances at Le Mans: Corvette Racing, Chevrolet and the Chevrolet
Corvette.
• 3: Generations of Corvette Racing entries since 2000 – Corvette C5-R
(2000-04), Corvette C6.R (2005-13), Corvette C7.R (2014-2019) and Corvette
C8.R (2021).
• 3: Number of wins for the Corvette C5-R – 2001, 2002, 2004.
• 4: Number of wins for the Corvette C6.R – 2005, 2006, 2009, 2011.
• 7: Number of Le Mans victories for Corvette Racing’s lineup.
Antonio Garcia: 3 Tommy Milner: 2 Jordan Taylor: 1 Nick
Tandy: 1
• 8: Class victories for Corvette Racing at Le Mans – all since 2001.
• 9: Number of drivers who have won races at Le Mans for Corvette Racing –
Olivier Beretta, Ron Fellows, Antonio Garcia, Oliver Gavin, Jan Magnussen,
Tommy Milner, Johnny O’Connell, Scott Pruett and Jordan Taylor.
• 14: Manufacturer Championships for Chevrolet and Corvette Racing since
2001.
• 23: Number of drivers to compete for Corvette Racing at Le Mans. That
number grew in 2021 with Nick Tandy, Nicky Catsburg and Alexander Sims
joining the lineup.
• 25: Tracks at which Corvette Racing has won races – Baltimore, Charlotte
Motor Speedway, COTA, Canadian Tire Motorsport Park/Mosport, Daytona,
Detroit, Houston, Laguna Seca, Le Mans, Lime Rock, Long Beach, Miami,
Mid-Ohio, Portland, Road America, Road Atlanta, Sebring, Sonoma, St.
Petersburg, Texas, Trois Rivieres, Utah, VIR, Washington DC and Watkins
Glen.
• 121: Victories worldwide for Corvette Racing – 113 in North America and
eight at Le Mans.
• 256: Event starts by Corvette Racing since 1999.
• 27,557.8: Approximate freight weight in pounds (12,500 kgs!!) sent by
Corvette Racing to Le Mans by air and by sea! The first shipment left
Detroit in April via rail and sea, and the last left in early-May by air.
• 104,343.44: Number of racing miles completed by Corvette Racing in its 21
previous trips to Le Mans. That represents 12,376 laps… or more than four
full trips around the Earth at its equator. The two Corvettes combined to go
over the 100,000-mile mark in the 2021 race.
• 340,225.78: Total number of racing miles completed by Corvette Racing
since its inception. To put that in perspective, Corvette Racing is more
than halfway to the distance traveled by Apollo 13 – the longest manned
spaceflight in history: 622,268 miles. That means Corvette Racing has raced
to the moon and part of the way back!
