Motorsport.com column: Lime Rock Park


Motorsport.com columnist Jan Magnussen gets set for a frantic period with Corvette Racing, and it’s all to play for against Ford, Ferrari, BMW and Porsche.

We’re really in the thick of the battle at this time of the year in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship with four key races over a six-week period.

This is really where championships can be won or lost and it is imperative to maintain momentum during this stretch.

The past couple of races the Corvette hasn’t had the speed of some of our rivals, but brilliant work by the Corvette Racing crew has maintained our spot at the top of the points with a third and fourth place finish in the past two races.

We are a very long way away from being able to cruise our way to the finish, however. Those BMWs were exceptionally strong at Watkins Glen and Canadian Tire Motorsport Park and we’re going to have to continue to up our game to compete.

We do have past form at the next few races which – although it counts for nothing now – does fill us with some confidence.
