It's no coincidence that Chevrolet has developped the system in absence of a spotter, as many incidents have ruined the factory team's efforts in the past. One will remember Emmanuel Collard's violent accident in the 2010 Le Mans 24 Hours after a Peugeot was attempting to pass him. At the time the French driver said: "I didn't know the Peugeot was there." That era has come and gone, as drivers Oliver Gavin, Tom Milner and Jan Magnussen explain in the following video.
