extensive works without testing having been finished only the day before.
For some reason the cars rev limiter developed a fault and was coming in at
just below 6k ( note white corvette pull away on straight) , car was
falling over in the corners ( dampers not working packed with bigger bump
stops) and had to retire with oil surge after taking lead ( see oil light).
Despite all this, the car was quick....should fly when sorted.....cant

America's Star-Spangled Sports Car
For nearly four decades, the Chevrolet Corvette was the only sports car
designed and built in North America. Capable of taking on and beating the
world's best production sports and GT cars on the international circuit,
Corvettes roared on the Mulsanne straight at Le Mans, flew on the high
banks at Daytona, and blazed their lights around Sebring. On amateur SCCA
circuits, Corvettes won fourteen "A Production" and fifteen "B Production"
divisional titles in the 1962 to 1976 period. SCCA Nationals saw Corvettes
capturing no less than 25 Run-Off Championships in A, B, and C Production
in the same time frame.
A Russian born ex-race driver and engineer hired by GM's Ed Cole gets the
credit for the almost unbelievable transformation that took place from 1954
to 1957. The '53 Corvette was thoroughly underpowered, but the 1957 V-8
version won its class at Sebring, as well as the Sports Car Club of America
"B" Production National Championship. In fact, in 1960, a Cunningham
Corvette placed First in GT at Le Mans! "Corvette -- The Real McCoy"
trumpeted the full page ads in the national media and that really said it
The classic, solid axle Corvette gave way to the beautiful Sting Ray coupes
and convertibles with independent suspension in 1963, and four-wheel disc
brakes became standard in 1965. In 1968, it emerged as the dramatic
Stingray (one word) with a "Coke bottle" shape, inspired by the '67 Mako
Shark Show Car.
Corvette Big Block Bruisers: "The Fast and the Few"
Only a few Corvettes can legitimately claim membership in this exclusive
club. John Greenwood's "Stars & Stripes" L-88 cars of the 1968--1973
period, backed by BFG and often racing on that company's new radial tires,
certainly qualify for this short list. Dave Heinz's two Corvettes, liveried
as "Rebel Flag" cars in a competitive response to the BFG effort and driven
by Heinz and Bob Johnson, often beat the Greenwood team due to better race
strategy and superior reliability.
However, the very best racing results were scored by the two Tony
DeLorenzo/Jerry Thompson Corvette team cars, which contested both the SCCA
Divisional and National circuit, as well as all of the important
U.S.A.-based FIA distance races. One of these, 002/68, their 1968
Owens/Corning Fiberglas L-88 car, is the very same that we are privileged
to present here.
Impressive period results include the 1969 and 1972 SCCA National "A"
Production Championships, 1968 and 1970 SCCA National "A" Production
Runner-Up, Second Place in GT at the 1969 12 Hours of Sebring, and the 1969
and 1970 GT Class wins in the 24 Hours of Daytona. In the 1970 event, it
finished Sixth Overall, behind two Porsche 917s, a Ferrari 512, and two
Ferrari 312s, but ahead of a Ferrari 250 LM in Seventh and a Ford GT40 in
Eighth. This car, together with its team car, won 22 of 22 SCCA/FIA
National Events during 1969--1971, with this car winning 11 of these!
Observers will note that these two team cars changed numbers for each race
entered, in order to give the perception of a large team effort. This car
was always the highest numbered car and driven most often by Jerry
Peter Klutt at Mid-Ohio.mov
Peter Klutt shows us his 1969 Corvette used for classic car racing in the
SVRA while preparing at the Mid Ohio Sports Car Course,
