Corvette Racing Program Manager Doug Fehan was at The Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum for a 2-day celebration dedicated to Corvette Racing. Under Doug’s leadership, Corvette Racing earned 92 race Victories, 10 Team Championships, 9 Driver Championships, and 7 Victories at the 24 Hours of Le Mans since 1999. This all spans 3 generations of Corvette models beginning with the all-conquering C5-R, continuing with the dominating C6-R, and the new for 2014, C7.R. Doug shared stories about the history of Corvette Racing and unique stories about his racing career. The Museum’s 1963 Corvette “Grand Sport” was started and revved up by George Wintersteen at the conclusion of the event.
