C6R "Skull: logo.
Fans of the pavement-thumping Corvette C6.R have probably noticed the very wicked logo the team runs, rather unofficially. The demonic skull-and-Corvette logo (the Corvette C6 logo makes for a great set of eyes) appears on the two ALMS/Le Mans Corvettes on the b-pillars.
The idea of the C6.R mascot was then presented to team bossman Doug Fehan, a man who has been described by Winding Road in the past as one of the best managers in all of racing. Fehan, never one to miss an opportunity to strengthen the team's heavy metal work ethic, thought enough of the design to put it into use on the cars. Now the logo is everywhere, including on crew members' shirts and on the ground for the team's pit stalls.
Bad Boy Vettes were at Le Mans in 2004 and we met the Corvette Racing team. they noticed that the team had unofficially embraced skull icons as a symbol of the take-no-prisoners mentality of those intense 24 hours. "TAKE NO PRISONERS" was actually scrawled on the wall of the Corvette pit.
They thought that the team should have its very own skull icon and sketched the idea over beers on a cocktail napkin.
The C6.R "Mascot" made its debut on C6.R's b pillars the next year at the 2005 Le Mans race. They've been on the C6.R's ever since. "What can we say except that we're extremely happy & proud to have our design on the coolest racecars in the world."
