FARO Proudly Supports America’s Own Corvette Racing Team

Published: Thursday, August 15, 2013 - 15:37

(FARO: Lake Mary, FL) -- FARO Technologies Inc., the world’s most trusted source for 3D measurement technology, was the proud sponsor of Chevrolet’s Corvette Racing Team, campaigned by Pratt & Miller Engineering, that raced in the 90th running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, June 23–24, 2013, in Le Mans, France.

The 24 Hours of Le Mans, the most famous endurance race in the world, requires a balance of speed, stamina, and managing resources such as tires, fuel, and brakes. Fifty competitors from around the world raced in June, including Ferrari, Porsche, BMW, Aston Martin, and Lotus. Winning this event is a testimony of cutting edge technology and dedication to developing world-class sports cars.

Having won the prestigious 24 Hours of Le Mans seven times, Pratt & Miller’s Corvette C6.R No. 73 & 74 Teams carry the pride of American manufacturing. As one of the most technically advanced sports car ever developed by General Motors, the C6.R race car has dominated Grand Tour Racing in the United States and abroad. Pratt & Miller’s technology, products, and personnel have propelled Corvette Racing to the pinnacle of production-based sports car competition.

The Corvette Racing Team may don the colors of yellow and black on the race track, but underneath their carbon fiber shell is the work of good old-fashioned red, white, and blue American pride that every Corvette fan can be proud of. As a U.S.-based manufacturer, FARO proudly supports the Pratt & Miller Corvette Racing Team and their commitment to excellence.
