In the latest episode - the seventh of the second season - of Corvette Racing’s ’Track To Street’ series, the company takes us behind the scenes to see just how the pit crew performs under pressure when they’re racing against the clock.
Much like the previous episode in which the Corvette Racing Team discussed the group of dedicated and tireless people that work behind-the-scenes, this video illustrates another facet of the behind the scenes action. In this video, we’ll see how each activity during the pit stop is performed in a matter of seconds. Things like swapping wheels and tires, cleaning the windshield, and refueling the endurance racer are executed in a way that facilitates the exit of the vehicle in a timely fashion. Needless to say, the success of a race car depends on how fast and how accurate these changes are made. One small mistake, and it could cost the racing team the victory. Guess the car isn’t the only thing that needs to be fast!
