"Corvette officially returned to racing competition in 1999 with its debut at the 24 Hours of Daytona. Since then it has completed in 50+ races and has won 35 of those events to become a modern day racing icon. The Gen III engine powered racers accomplished the almost unheard of feet of finishing 1-2 in both the 24 hours of Daytona and the 24 hours of Lemans in the 2001 season. For the 2002 season the C5-Rís showed that they were once again on a mission with back-to-back 1-2 finishes at the grueling 24 hours of LeMans. In Corvetteís last year as a C5-R, the bright yellow cars did the unprecedented, and won every race that they competed in, including a third 1-2 finish at LeMans.
At Katech we have been involved in the Corvette program since the inception in the fall of 1997. Our commitment to serving the corporate customer is reinforced as Katech continues to supply and develop engines for the 2006 season with the debut of the new C6-R racecar prepared to compete in the American LeMans Series and itís French counterpart, the 24hrs of LeMans.
At Katech we have the facility and staff to support all facets of a corporate program with virtually every tool required to accomplish any task."
