Corvette Racing Spotlights “Jake” Mascot in ALMS Season Finale

Conceived on a cocktail napkin and seen in winner’s circles from Long Beach to Le Mans, Corvette Racing’s skull mascot will have star billing at the Monterey Sports Car Championships at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca on Saturday, Oct. 20. Affectionately known to the team and Corvette enthusiasts as Jake, the skull mascot will adorn the Compuware Corvette C6.R race cars in full-body graphics for the four-hour season finale of the 12-race American Le Mans Series.With the GT1 manufacturer, team, and driver championships clinched, the last race of the season will be a celebration of Corvette Racing’s success. “We wanted to do something special for Laguna Seca, and the guys on the team are totally behind Jake,” said Corvette Racing program manager Doug Fehan. “He’s a little edgy, urban, and underground. Young fans get it. The special Jake cars are a one-time only deal, just for fun, to make the last race of the season memorable for the fans.”

The Monterey Sports Car Championships, the final round of the 12-race ALMS series, will start at 2:43 p.m. PT on Saturday, October 20. The four-hour race will be televised live on SPEED Channel from 5:30 to 10 p.m. ET.
