Corvette Racing's Rolex 24 Debut goes far Better than Detroit Sibling's does!

Psst, Do you remember where I parked our car?

Prior to this weekend's 24 Hours of Daytona, where Corvette Racing's first ever Mid-engine Vette' was making it's racing Debut, I came across an entertaining article in Car and Driver magazine via my NFB Newsline for The Blind telephone service.

Although, arguably it wasn't entertaining for whomever the hapless driver of presumably a Pre-production C8 Vette' was, since the vehicle was spotted in Detroit up on Cinder Blocks and Missing it's rubber bits; SHEISA!

Meanwhile the brand new Corvette C8.R's were having Thar own Fun around Daytona International Speedway, where the No. 4 suffered an extensive Oil leak, causing the racecar to go many laps down, although it came back out to run its remaining laps as a test session.

As I believe this is the car that John Hindhaugh claimed looked very stealthy, a la an F-16 Fighter in its menacing silver gray paint scheme!

Whilst I believe that the traditional Banana Yellow No. 3 Vette' finished P4 in class, sandwiched between the winning BMW M8 GTE, the two Porsche 911 RSR 19's and the Seester' M8 BMW which suffered its own mechanical gremlins finishing ahead of the second Corvette.

Still not sure exactly what All this Babble over the new Vette's Flat Plane Crank means, but Y'all can check out the radically different sounding Beast in the story link below...
