They Said It

“The manufacturer championship is most important to us. We keep reminding ourselves and the team reminds us that the ultimate goal is to win the manufacturer championship for Chevrolet. So far that has panned out well and continues to do so.” – Jan Magnussen

“Over the years, Corvette Racing has been competitive on all types of circuits – road courses and street circuits. Whatever kind of track will are on, the car is always competitive. We just need to be focused and get in a rhythm as soon as possible. Like any street circuit, you cannot make any mistakes and keep the car on the track until the end of the race.” – Antonio Garcia
