GT2 Corvettes Planned For ALMS
With the GT1 picture still very foggy it’s a delight to reveal
that a GT2 class Corvette is in build for the 2007 ALMS season.
GT Challenge frontrunner Lou Gigliotti (below) revealed this morning,
at Laguna Seca, that his LG Motorsports team is building a car up
from a Corvette Z06 road car for a driver “new to the Series”
with the possibility of a second car for Gigliotti himself to follow.
“I’m waiting to see how the Speed GT
guys decide to go before we confirm the second car. I won a couple
of races this season and they slammed me with 190 pounds of ballast
which just puts me right out of the picture. I had someone come
and ask about me running him in Speed GT and he eventually decided
that GT2 in the ALMS suited him better. We’ll run him with
another new face in the first car and we’re likely to build
a second Z06 for me and another quick guy.”
In other GT2
news, the long promised Renntech Mercedes effort is still very much
alive. Strong paddock sources are talking of a two car effort in
time for Sebring.
The ALMS has
real momentum at the moment.
