Corvette C7.R Entry Being Finalized for European Le Mans Series


We don’t know who will be behind the wheel yet, but Sportscar365 is reporting that ProSpeed Competition will be competing with a Corvette C7.R in the European Le Mans Series in 2016.

That would mark a return to international competition after a year’s absence for the Rudi Penders-owned team, which reportedly will be fielding an ex-Pratt & Miller C7.R for Team AAI.

ProSpeed supported that team in a two-car Porsche GTE-Am entry this year at Le Mans.

If ProSpeed does compete, it would become the second customer Corvette C7.R team in the world, along with Larbre Competition’s GTE-Am entry in the FIA World Endurance Championship in 2015.

ProSpeed would be using one of the Corvette Racing chassis that ran in the 2015 TUDOR United SportsCar Championship, as the factory team will using updated, 2016-spec cars at Daytona in January.
