In Chevrolet’s latest Track to Street series, Corvette Racing takes us along on a hot lap around the LeMans track. This is the very same track where driver Oliver Gavin received first place in the GTE Pro division of the 24h endurance race a little over a week ago.

In addition to the lap around the track, Chevrolet has also provided a second video featuring in depth interviews with drivers like Richard Westbrook as they describe what it’s like to be on and off the track. This video came out before the team’s win at LeMans, but after watching the Gavin make the quick lap around LeMans, it seemed necessary to go into the the team’s preparations for the 24 hour long event.

Let’s just say that we envy the thrill of being a part of such a famous event, but are in awe of the endurance these drivers have to have in order to complete the race.

One more video after the jump.

Team work is the most important thing in a race aside from the speed performance of the car. This video will surely be a guide other team racers in winning a race. Great effort for the team.

Yeah, this is what you call a full team effort! Admittedly, I am learning from the dedication and great inspiration of these car drivers to endure all just to finish the whole race!

The good thing about this show was they not only focus in the speed performance and the car driver but as well as the team creative behind each race. The winning in the race depends on the coordination of the team.

hey, I think they have released the preview for the next episode. I really don’t know what that one is all about yet, but from what I have seen, it is also going to be rather interesting.

Chevy really is doing a great job on finding and giving the best on their cars. Corvette is one of the most astonishing model of Chevrolet ever made.

I wonder what they would do for the next episode. I am definitely a huge fan of this series, since they really feature in a lot of cars. And I would say that this one is definite one of their best so far.

Well, aside from the run of the Corvette around the track, I really like that they did an extensive feature on the Le Mans track. I really learned a lot about it from this one.

Well now, that one really is a show off. But it’s a good thing that they did that at the Le Mans truck. It really showed off the capabilities of the Corvette.

It’s really a good thing that they brought the car to the Le mans track. That one will surely test everything about this Corvette and will show off its potential.

Nice, the series is really getting better every episode. I really like this one much. Imagine that, they were actually able to unleash the Corvette at Le mans.

As always, a very interesting episode. And they really made ta good choice for this one by selecting the LeMans track to show of the Corvette’s performance.

The Le Mans track have a very tricky corners so the drivers need to be more careful. The only thing that I have noticed is that the Corvette seems very fast in the straight line unlike in the corners.

As expected from the Le Mans, Chevrolet Racing is so exciting to watch. And up to kno I’ still wonder on where these guys get so much endurance just to finish the whole race! The thirll of the car race never fades here.
