the corvette 'ZR1' supercar can be found featured as a GT during the 24 hours of le mans, the world's oldest active sports car race in endurance racing.
originating in 1923 near the town of le mans, race teams have to balance speed against the cars' ability to run for 24 hours without sustaining major
damage while still managing limited fuel, tires and brakes. races are held through-out the world ranging from the famous nurburgring to laguna seca.
