LG MotorSports – GT2
Petit Le Mans holds no prisoners and
for LG MotorSports #28 Corvette it was a roller coaster ride
that followed the Road Atlanta road course. Simply getting
the car ready for the race was a major feat since fire
essentially destroyed #28 at Long Beach after being hit by a
Outside Pole Position, Tom
Sutherland #28 LG Corvette Fastest qualifying GT2 Corvette.
Despite the flooded race and out-dated
Dunlap tires, the sun shined brightly on #28 for
qualification, achieving the outside pole position, usurping
it from the factory team during the closing seconds of
Lou and team celebrated by bringing
#28 into the Corvette Corral for an impromptu autograph
session that drew Corvette fans and owners like a magnet.
The sun dimmed at the start as #28 had
to start from the pits after missing the warm up lap. Tom
Sutherland started the race on cold tires and missed turn
#10A and drove through the gravel pit destroying the
splitter and nose which cost many laps getting back on the
track. The severely damaged front meant great loss of down
force during both dry and wet conditions. Regardless of the
damage and dated equipment #28 finished 8th out of 13.

Sadly, LG MotorSports #28 will not be returning to ALMS.
Lack of access to current technology racing hardware
prompted the decision. The #28 Corvette will be missed in
ALMS. Next year #28 Corvette(s) will be competing in
GRAND-AM Road Racing. All cars wear Pirelli tires.
