Schumacher injured himself in a Dec. 29 skiing accident in the French Alps. He was taken to Grenoble University Hospital in France, where he was placed into the coma.

An amateur Corvette L88 team beat the world’s best GT cars in this world record holding No. 57 “Rebel” L88 Corvette. The story about how this amazing Corvette became a world- beater begins with two Tampa, Fla., businessmen, Dave Heinz and Or Costanzo. Heinz owned Dave Heinz Imports, a Tampa dealership that sold new Jaguars. Costanzo was the new car sales manager for Ferman Chevrolet.

On weekends both shared a common passion — racing Corvettes. Zora Arkus-Duntov, the famous General Motors engineer turned high-performance department director, was always on the lookout for ways to support successful Corvette teams, including the Heinz and Costanzo Corvette. The fact that Costanzo worked at Ferman Chevrolet helped, giving him open communication to GM.
