Corvette Racing wins 24 Hours of Le Mans

Congratulations to Corvette Racing for their historic victory in the most grueling race of the season, the 24 Hours of Le Mans! The win came as Chevrolet celebrates its 100th anniversary and the 10th anniversary of Corvette Racing’s first Le Mans victory in 2001.

FARO is a proud sponsor of Corvette Racing and a long-time partner with Pratt & Miller Engineering. Corvette Racing, which is run by Pratt & Miller, has used FaroArms in the design, quality control and race-specification compliance of their vehicles; the Gage validates parts in their precision machine shop; and the ScanArm reverse-engineers components. This allows the company’s engineers and technicians to accurately and efficiently produce everything from small, individual components and sub-assemblies to complete turnkey road and race cars.

Pratt & Miller used the FaroArm, FARO Gage and FARO Laser ScanArm in order to design, construct and analyze ‘virtual’ components, CFD (computational fluid dynamics), systems, and complete cars – every facet of a project from initial conception to the finished product. The combination of Pratt & Miller team’s expertise and FARO’s portable, computerized measuring technologies offers a total design solution, so Pratt & Miller has unmatched time and cost efficiencies, accuracy, and performance.
