One year ago, General Motors opened the doors to the all-new GM Powertrain Performance and Racing Center – a state-of-the-art facility that brings together a team of nearly 85 engine builders, engineers and staff to develop and support the racing engines for Corvette Racing’s C7.R in IMSA, the Cadillac ATSV.R in the World Challenge Series, as well as the engines for the NHRA COPO Camaros, IndyCar and NASCAR.
To assist in the technology transfer from racing to the production cars, engineers have opened up the lines of communication between the engineers working on the production cars and those on the racing program. Production engineers rotate through the Powertrain performance and Racing Center to learn how to run at “race pace”, where they always have to take the data available and make quick decisions.
Our friends at Mobil 1 The Grid go behind the scenes to see how the GM Powertrain Performance and Racing Center plays its role in the overall success of Corvette Racing on the track.
Corvette Racing is back in action this weekend for the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring with the green flag dropping Saturday, March 18th.
