Corvette was the title sponsor of ABC Sport’s broadcast of the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring. Following this endurance race they showed this commercial telling viewers that when they decided to take 638-horsepower Corvette racing, they had to dial back the power just to be fair to Porsche, Ferrari and BMW.
We wonder what the Germans and Italians response has been. Winning the race perhaps? Exactly! BMW Team RLL no. 56 BMW M3 GT, driven by Dirk Muller (DE), Joey Hand (US) and Andy Priaulx (GB) claimed the GT-class victory in the 12-hour race in Sebring after 312 laps last weekend. Dirk Werner (DE), Bill Auberlen (US) and Augusto Farfus (BR) came second with the no. 55 BMW M3 GT, making it a clean sweep for BMW Motorsport in this classic endurance race.
