Corvette Racing
Corvette made its competition debut in 1956 at the 12 Hours of Sebring, backed by legendary engineer and racer Zora Arkus-Duntov, who was continually working to develop Corvette performance behind the scenes. Three Corvettes were entered in the 1956 12 Hours of Sebring with John Fitch and Walt Hansgen finishing first in Class B and ninth overall. Corvettes went on to Sebring class wins in 1957, 1958, 1960, 1961 and 1962.
