We finished DLW-R001 in the paddock at Sebring on the morning of qualifying for the HSR Sebring race meet. The first time out on any racetrack was qualifying. Our competitors had been running their cars all day the day before, and then again during the morning practice.
In 2005 we qualified 16th out of 60, and finished 3rd overall and first in class in the all Corvette feature race. In 1965 we finished 34th overall and third in class, so clearly we had made progress in those 40 years!
It was eye opening to see a couple of these historic Corvettes turn lap times at Sebring as fast as current carbon fiber bodied fuel injected World Challenge C-5 Corvettes. It seems not everyone is into re-creating things as they were. We took notes and will make the appropriate adjustments. Zora Duntov would not have it any other way!
