The #4 C5R came in second in GTS with Andy Pilgrim (co-driver with Dale Earnhardt at Daytona 2001) and Kelly Collins. CONGRATS!!!

Also spotted: The C5R - 2001 LeMans Hat!!! ...attention MY Vette owners...what major felony would you commit to get one of these??!!

Awesome! Now I can give a guy at work some crap since he thinks the Saleen is superior to the C5. (he has a '97 S351 Saleen, which is no slouch! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_eek.gif )

GAWD I can't wait to order my Z06! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif

Harley,
Bad news:"However, the Viper was promoted to second in class and 15th overall after the race when the no.4 Corvette was disqualified for being found underweight in post race inspection" /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_frown.gif

Reference: http://www.speedvision.com/pub/articles/racing/06road/010805f.html

How did this happen?? /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_confused.gif

At least we beat the Saleen and Viper with good 'ol Ron Fellows in #3 /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif

I'm with Barry, how coulf they be under weight? In fact it's the first time I can recall in the programs history this has happened?

After Sebring, I was worried. But now, got my tickets for the Petit LeMans and can hardly wait!
