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.

Speed World 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.
