With next year’s and next months 2022 Rolex 24 at Daytona just over 30 days away, Corvette Racing had just committed to run 2 new C8R’s in the GTD Pro “updated” configuration at IMSA’s premier event at Daytona.
The WeatherTech Championship with IMSA will be different for Corvette Racing this in 2022 where only one C8R will run the full season and the second car will run in Europe for the FIA World Endurance Championship, except for this season opening event in Florida where the familiar #3 and #4 will compete together.
Antonio Garcia, Jordan Taylor and Nicky Catsburg will be the drivers for the #3 C8R and the #4 entry will be handled by Tommy Milner, Nick Tandy and newcomer Marco Sorensen from Denmark. It will be a very interesting season in 2022 to see how America’s premier GT Sports Car Team does here and abroad with a slightly different car configuration and a LOT MORE cars in the classes they will be competed in for both Championships.
Like many other Motorsport News outlets, we will be following the 2022 Corvette Racing program to see how the “SPLIT TEAM” does, so we hope to see you back here for some more insights and reported updates and the new race season progresses.
UNTIL NEXT TIME……..TACH IT UP!!!
Above is a link to our You-tube video of testing the C8R at Daytona on Automobilista 2 with our new race rig equipment from Logitech and GT Omega……
The 2021 C8R Team Car #4 at speed at Daytona Rolex 24.
Haven’t seen yet weather both cars will be back in Yellow or if they are split between teams for 2022 in Silver and Yellow or some other combo of both since the teams will compete both here and abroad “across the pond” as my old British friends use to say..
