Nice to see the Ollies driving in another 24 hour race... :thumbsup: I guess they gotta do something to kill the urge after their misfortune at Le Mans.

It's good to see that many Corvettes involved in the 24 hour race. Spa is a great track, only wish I could be there. Oliver Gavin is a great person. I met him at the ALMS race in St. Petersburg Florida earlier this year. I also think Oliver has excellent taste. You see in the ALMS there are Corvette corals at each race, and the drivers select a Corvette in the coral they like best of all, well Oliver picked my Torch Red 01 coupe.
Have fun at Spa, and I will watch the replay this winter when it is shown on the Speed Channel.

You must have the special version of SpeedTV...because I've never seen a replay of this race yet and I've had SpeedTV now for a few years...Then again, I do live in California..so 'maybe' that's got something to do w/it??? :rolleyes:

Speed Channel normally shows the 24 hour Spa race in the winter. Granted it is not much, is is only a 1 hour show of the highlites, but it is better then nothing.

29/07/2007: Victory to Carsport Holland in the Total 24 Hours of Spa

After 532 laps around the 7.004 km circuit of Spa Francorchamps, the nr 5 Carsport Holland Corvette C6-R of Deletraz, Hezemans, Fässler and Gollin, with technical assistance from Phoenix, took the chequered flag to win the Total 24 Hours of Spa, round 6 of the 2007 FIA GT Championship. They finished ahead of long-time leader nr 1 Vitaphone Maserati MC 12 of Bartels, Biagi, van de Poele and Lamy, which had lost a lap after going off an hour before the end. Local heros PK Carsport came home third with their Corvette C5-R, driven by Kumpen, Longin, Bouvy and Mollekens.
