“Win your class at Le Mans, that’s the ultimate sports-car credential,” Campbell said. “Obviously, we’ve had a lot of success in the North American IMSA Tudor Series, and before that, the American Le Mans Series, but Le Mans is very special. When you win against Ferrari, Aston Martin, Porsche — over the years there’s been times when BMW competed –- you’ve accomplished something.  We’ve had great competitions with Viper. When you have the opportunity to race against that level of competitor, when you get to the top of the podium, it makes it extra special.”
