Celebrating the 50th anniversary of Chevrolet’s lone triumph in the 63rd Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring Fueled by Fresh From Florida, Christian Fittipaldi, Joao Barbosa and Sebastien Bourdais teamed in the No. 5 Action Express Racing Mustang Sampling Corvette DP to make new history for the Bow Tie Brigade.
Porsche’s misfortune was Corvette Racing’s gain Saturday night as a pair of mechanical issues in the final hour of the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring Fueled by Fresh From Florida propelled the No. 3 Corvette Racing Corvette C7.R to the GT Le Mans (GTLM) victory for the second consecutive race to open the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship season.
Starworks Motorsport waited until the closing minutes of Sunday’s final Roar Before the Rolex 24 weekend at Daytona International Speedway to make a headline. With the track nearly dry following scattered showers throughout the day, the team bolted a set of slick tires on the No. 7 Dinan/Riley and sent out veteran Formula One star Rubens Barrichello – who promptly posted the fastest lap of the day by nearly five miles per hour.
Barrichello lapped the 3.56-mile circuit in 1:47.230 (119.519 mph). While he admits the lap was a fluke, the 11-time Formula One winner feels the team made major strides in preparation for the 2015 TUDOR United SportsCar Championship season-opening Rolex 24 At Daytona on Jan. 24-25.
