Racer Magazine names Corvette Racing coveted Team of the Year
EDITOR’S CHOICE TEAM OF THE YEAR: CORVETTE RACING
Digging deep, backs to the wall, remaining steadfast in the face of adversity – all phrases that could be applied to Corvette Racing in 2013. But predictably, it’s program manager Doug Fehan who best sums up his team’s season in which the aged C6.R signed off with the ALMS GT manufacturers’, teams’ and drivers’ titles.
“After Sebring, I don’t think we ever had the fastest car at any race,” he says, “and in some events, we were the slowest. So that made us work harder and figure out a way to win.
“You do that with perfect preparation, great race strategy and outstanding pit stop implementation. Those are what win races...
“In 2013, I think we redefined the word “team.’”
Contrastingly and ironically, therefore, picking Corvette Racing as RACER’s Team of the Year was easy.
