The 2010 season may not have been what Corvette Racing expected, but with one race left in the calendar, they did all they could to end the year on the right foot.

In a year filled with inconsistencies and embarrassing blunders, the Corvette Racing Team went to Petit Le Mans - the 10-hour, 1,000 mile race at Road Atlanta - and pulled off a dramatic come-from-behind win from the #4 Corvette Race car driven by Oliver Gavin, Jan Magnussen, and Emmanuel Collard. Meanwhile, the #3 Corvette withstood some mechanical problems in the car to finish sixth in class.

For the 2010 ALMS season, Corvette Racing finished fourth in the GT Team Championship class with 137 points. BMW/Rahal Letterman Racing took first place with 158 points, edging out Flying Lizards Motorsports who came in second with 157 points. Rounding out the top 3 was Risi Competizione with 150 points.

Despite the fourth overall finish, the win at Petit Le Mans was the perfect way to cap a tumultuous season for the team, and likewise, an ideal way to conclude the 12-part “Track to Street” series.

Check out the video for the dramatic conclusion.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Trickle down" technology? Where does Ford race where such a thing could exist outside of Le Mans (Aston Martin)? NASCAR? Craftsman Truck? Don’t count on it.
