When a pair of Camaros took on Porsche at the 1982 Le Mans


#1

In 1982, it was the 50th running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the year Jacky Ickx and Derek Bell won together for the second year in a row; it was the debut of the incredible Porsche 956, which not only took home a 1-2-3 finish but would go on to win at Le Mans every year until 1985. Feel that tradition in the air! That proud European sports car tradition, intermingled with legends at the Circuit de la Sarthe. And it was the same year that a pair of badass Camaros crashed the party with a field of NASCAR ringers.

When has Corvette “dominated” at the LeMans 24?

@its55 - In the last 20 years Corvette has been top of class for eight. Multiple podium finishes that weren’t the top step also. I would say consistency at that level would be close to domination.
