Privateer Corvettes In 2006
How Many, To Whom?
Fehan took time out this morning at Laguna Seca to explain how the
available Corvette race cars will be made available by GM.
any major corporate entity GM has a procedure that must be followed
when any asset is disposed of.
is now being handled by GM's Asset Recovery, and we're getting to
the point where sealed bids will be submitted, I'd expect around
10 or 12 and most of them from Europe.
are several cars available but the cars that are realistic, competitive
racecars are the two current C6.R race cars and chassis 10 C5-R.
I'd expect to see all three racing next season, the C5-R will still
be very competitive in Europe."
As to the who
or the where, Doug Fehan's lips are sealed but there's no secret
that the cars Team Corvette are really interested in racing against
next season are the DBR9s and Fehan, typically, is ready willing
and able to put personal time in to support any drive for sponsorship
to bring the green cars stateside for 2006.
tough thing to go against Team Corvette and if I can help anyone
to understand what they might get in sponsorship value from competing
here I'll be only too happy to do so."
like this in Europe!
