Rejoice, Issue 4 of Tazio Magazine is almost upon us. We expect the copies fresh from the printer on June 15th, so we can start shipping one day later. If you like your engines loud and wild, you are going to love this issue.
Tazio 4 focuses on the fight that opposed the Dodge Viper GTS-R and the Chevrolet Corvette C5-R. All along the 2000 ALMS season, and at Daytona and Le Mans, the red Oreca Vipers and the yellow Corvette Racing C5-Rs would get involved in mighty battles. We look back on one of the most epic episodes GT racing gave us. Naturally aspirated 8-litre V10 meets 7-litre V8. Believe us, when these things open up, everyone in a 3-mile radius knows about it.
We got the chance to unite the Dodge Viper GTS-R and the Corvette C5-R on the same stretch of asphalt, the Chambley circuit in the East of France. Art & Revs owner Florent Moulin not only talked us through both cars, but he let us out with them on track as well. This, combined with the interviews we had with Karl Wendlinger (Oreca Viper) and Andy Pilgrim (Corvette Racing) led to one hefty, 20-page dossier. A cracking story, you’ll love every bit of it.
And of course, there is much more. We will talk about that in the coming days, don’t worry.
