2nd and 4th for the debut of the C7.R at Le Mans - Sun 15 Jun 14 19:09

The No. 73 Corvette Racing team of Jan Magnussen, Antonio Garcia and Jordan Taylor battled back from early adversity to earn a second place result in GTE Pro behind eventual winners the No. 51 AF Corse Ferrari 458 Italia with Giancarlo Fisichella, Toni Vilander and Gianmaria Bruni.

The Corvette C7.R team encountered a problem with its air jack during a pit stop in the second quarter of the race, putting the team almost two laps down to the leaders.

They got back on the lead lap before the halfway point, but it was still a long distance behind on the 8.49-mile circuit. The team ran in fifth place through most of the overnight hours, before steadily working its way toward the front. Garcia took over second in the 23rd hour of the race and crossed the finish line one lap behind the winning Ferrari.

“It’s not a win, but I’m very, very happy for the team,” Magnussen said. “We had a great race. We had one issue in the pit that cost us a lap, probably, with an air jack failure, which was a shame.

“With the safety cars, we got put back one-third lap every time. Three times, we were the first car behind the safety car, and you lose a lot with that, but that’s how it goes. We had a great car the whole race.”

Fourth place went to Oliver Gavin, Tommy Milner and Richard Westbrook in the No. 74 Corvette. In the early running they had the pace to lead the class but the car had to make several unplanned stops including one to change the door as the panels weren't bright enough (seriously), and for what looked like a drivetrain issue.
