Online Video Streams from Two Corvette C6.Rs and Corvette Racing Garage to Enhance Live Coverage of 24 Hours of Le Mans
Race fans in the U.S. will be able to ride along with Corvette Racing in the 24 Hours of Le Mans for the second consecutive year. SPEED's coverage of the classic endurance race will include live video streams from the two Compuware Corvette C6.Rs as they navigate the immense 8.5-mile Circuit de la Sarthe on June 16-17. A third camera in the Corvette Racing garage will take viewers inside the world's most prestigious sports car race.
This online coverage can be viewed exclusively by at www.speed.com/corvette. This website will also be the only place for fans in the U.S. to watch live coverage of the 24 Hours of Le Mans while SPEED broadcasts other programming from 1:00-2:30 p.m. ET and 7:00-7:30 p.m. ET on Saturday, June 16.
Race fans can also follow the team with real-time updates on Twitter @CorvetteRacing.
One year ago the No. 73 Compuware Corvette took SPEED viewers from the green flag to the checkered flag and a victory in the GTE Pro category. With cameras mounted in both Corvettes this year, viewers will be able to watch the action from two perspectives.
"Last year Corvette Racing gave fans the ride of a lifetime," said Jim Campbell, Chevrolet U.S. Vice President for Performance Vehicles and Motorsports.
"They were in the cockpit through twilight and darkness, the early-morning rain showers that made the track so difficult, Tommy Milner's thrilling pass for the lead, and Antonio Garcia bringing home Corvette Racing's seventh win at Le Mans.
Now we are very proud to provide fans with even more opportunities to experience the magic of Le Mans and to see Corvette take on a field of world-class competitors in the most demanding sports car race on the planet."
SPEED and SPEED.com will provide 25 total hours of continuous broadcast coverage starting on Saturday, June 15, at 8:30 a.m. ET, including pre- and post-race activities.
