DETROIT, Aug. 31, 2007 - The roar of Chevy thunder returned to Motor City today as Corvette Racing's twin Compuware Corvette C6.Rs rocked the revamped Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix street circuit. Qualifying on the 2.0-mile temporary course that winds through Belle Isle Park, Jan Magnussen won the GT1 pole for Saturday's Detroit Sports Car Challenge, the 10th round of the 12-race American Le Mans Series. The Danish driver turned a fast lap at 1:21.057 (91.935 mph) in the No. 3 Compuware Corvette C6.R to edge Olivier Beretta by .332 seconds in the No. 4 Compuware Corvette C6.R.

The 20-minute qualifying session was interrupted by a red flag to retrieve a GT2 car that had stopped on the course after the two Corvettes had completed their first flying laps. The green flag flew with 12 minutes and 38 seconds remaining, and both Corvettes were back on the attack. Magnussen then ran his fast time on his third timed lap; Beretta put a 1:21.389 on the board on his second circuit, but couldn't better his time in three more attempts.
