We're on an airplane, heading back and disappointed. We had two great race cars, and sadly we lost engines on both-that's not the type of result we were expecting. Right now it's tough because you really think about training all year for one race. Still, there are a lot of good things we learned during the race. It was an awesome battle-both cars ran really fast, and if there's one thing you know, it's that lessons get learned.

We didn't win in 2000, the first year the team went to Le Mans with the GT1 car. But we did win in 2001. Again, this is our first year in GT2. When we go back next year, it will be the second year with the GT2, and we'll get a win. As for this year, if nothing else, we showed the world that the Chevrolet Corvette right now is as fast as everyone. We didn't have the endurance that we needed, but we'll make sure we have that next year.
