Corvette Racing has just released the next (and third) installment of its 12-part video series, this time examining how race technology makes its way to the street. In particular, the latest video highlights the new Z06 Carbon edition, which gets plenty of light-weight carbon fiber add-ons to help it shave off weight and run a quicker lap time – by as much as 3 seconds a lap on a track like Laguna Seca.
The “Track to Street” philosophy is even more important in 2010, considering the new GT class Corvette race cars are now significantly more like the street cars than in the past.
Check out the video after the jump and we’ll be sure to bring you the next update in the series, as we hope to learn more about the new 5.5-liter V8 race engine and its street-car application.
