The Major Entry: C8.R

There is a lot of news to keep yourself updated and sports racing the best of it, especially when you are a fitness guy. So, this time, it is Corvette Racing, the company is entering with a single C8.r this February, for the FIA World Endurance Championship round to be held at Austin.

The Corvette seems to be the American Marque, on the provisional list of Lone star Le Mans event. Along with it, the GTE pro is going to face rivals such as the Porsche, Ferrari, and Aston Martin. 

Though the names of the drives have not yet been put forward into the light, there are a lot of rumors around, and we will come to it when confirmed if possible. 

Thus, this inclusion of the beast into the track boosts the number of class cars to seven, while making it a total of 31 cars in total on the field race. This is similar to what last weekend’s Bahrain round comprised of.

The Past and the Book: World Endurance Championship

Talking of the earlier records, corvette managed to two one-offs appearances at the GTE Pro division of the World Endurance Championship in the run-up position. It was for the Lemans 24 hours in 2018\19, at the race at Shanghai and Sebring. 

This time, it will be the second mark for the C8.r’s in the Austin World Endurance Championship event, after the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship took place, the season opener for the Rolex 24 at Daytona. 

There is a rumor that the Corvette Racing may also enter the Sebring 1000 miles, along with the Sebring 12 Hours, both of the events occurring on the same weekend for a consecutive second year. 

We stick to the talks and it will be quiet interesting to find out the events with Corvette. There are no official words for the same as well.

 So, you may feel a dilemma but stay tuned to find more on the talks and confirms.
