    A Corvette C6.R formerly raced by the Pratt & Miller Corvette Racing team perished in massive transporter fire. Chassis #003 was owned and run by Luc Alphand Aventures, a French-based GT1 motorsports team. The Corvette appeared at Le Mans this year but retired after a major crash.

    The team was on its way to the Abli for the upcoming round of the FFSA GT Championship when the fire occurred, consuming the transporter, the car and much of the team's equipment and spare parts.

    Luc Alphand Aventures also owns chassis #004 and will work hard to get it ready for the remaining rounds of the LMS, FFSA GT, and FIA GT championships.

    This car was built in 2006 and was run by the factory Corvette Racing team as the #3 car in the ALMS (#63 at Le Mans) that year, as well as a couple races in 2007. Luc Alphand Adventures purchased the car in 2008 and has run it successfully in many of Europe's great sports car racing series.

    The car had four wins to its credit: ALMS @ Road America in 2006, LMS @ Catalunya & Spa in 2008, and FFSA GT @ Nogaro in 2009.

    affraid OMGosh, such a shame as this is more of an omen for me. The GT1 Corvette is becoming a great car from the past.
