Corvette Racing have a battle ahead of them after a surprisingly poor qualifying effort by the two yellow machines.

Qualifying 8th and 9th, the two Compuware Corvettes need to work hard to get a result in the race at Virginia International Raceway, one of the fastest tracks on the American Le Mans Series (ALMS) calendar.

The #4 Corvette was the victim of Risi Competizione’s oil spill as Tommy Milner span and collided with the barriers at Oak Tree Corner, thankfully the damage was limited to the front left corner.

Jan Magnussen in the sister Corvette said: “That was a tough session for both Corvettes. The car was actually pretty balanced.
The only strategy we can look at now is that we need to react to what everyone else does. We need to try to stay clean and get as many points we can. The chance of getting 20 points is slim. But if we’re good for 10 points, we’d better get 10 points.”

With the #3 13 points ahead of Dirk Muller in the GT drivers championship, it is important that the ‘Vette can get as many points as possible to set up a comfortable lead going into the season finale at Petit Le Mans.
