It was a disappointing finish on Sunday for Corvette Racing’s two C7.Rs at the Continental Tire Monterey Grand Prix at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. Both Corvettes were never in contention to challenge the BMWs who would go on to finish 1-2 in GLTM.

Corvette Racing finished sixth in seventh in class with the No.4 Corvette C7.R driven by Oliver Gavin and Tommy Milner edging their teammates in the No.3 Corvette C7.R piloted by Antonio Garcia and Jan Magnussen.
