PRESS RELEASE:
Victory was No. 50 with program for Corvette veteran

CORVETTE RACING REWIND: Oliver Gavin, Long Beach 2018
Victory was No. 50 with program for Corvette veteran

DETROIT (April 9, 2020) – With racing on hold all over the globe, Corvette
Racing is taking a look back at some of its top highlights from its 20-plus
years of competitions.

In the first of a new series titled “Corvette Racing Rewind”, Oliver Gavin
relives the 2018 Bubba Burger Sports Car Grand Prix at Long Beach, which he
won with long-time teammate Tommy Milner in the No. 4 Mobil 1/SiriusXM
Chevrolet Corvette C7.R.

The result was extra-special for Gavin as it marked his 50th victory as part
of Corvette Racing. Five of those wins have come at Long Beach – three with
Milner.

"Amazing the way that all came around,” Gavin said after the race. “Yes we
had a little bit of luck, but Tommy had to drive brilliantly at the end
there and stay out of trouble. There were a number of incidents there. Man,
we could have gotten taken out. We could have gotten in the wall. Tommy just
navigated through it. We had a great pit stop. The guys did an amazing job.
We jumped a number of people and put us in position there we could challenge
for that victory. And we got it! That is our first win in season No. 20 for
Corvette Racing. And it is my 50th victory with the team. That is pretty
amazing… I am just thrilled."

The next edition of “Corvette Racing Rewind” will feature Antonio Garcia
reviewing his drive to close the 2017 Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring.
