This is a blog post that has nearly been written three times since the inaugural TUDOR United SportsCar Championship began last year, and after Sunday’s race at Watkins Glen, I’ve decided not to hold back my feelings for how I believe Corvette Racing/Team Chevy PR is undermining its core fan base in support of the Corvette Daytona Prototypes.

As Dennis Miller says, “I don’t want to go on a rant, but…”

This has been a magical year for Corvette Racing and the C7.R.

First they opened the season with a win at the Rolex 24 at Daytona and then followed that up with a win at the Twelve Hours of Sebring. Then it’s off to France for Corvette Racing’s most important race of the year. And when the odds looked stacked against them after losing the No.63 Corvette in a qualifying accident, the No.64 Corvette with drivers Gavin, Milner and Taylor stepped up and ran about the cleanest 24 hour race ever to win the GTE-Pro class at the 24 Hours at Le Mans.

Corvette Racing at Watkins Glen: Searching for More Endurance Success


Corvette C7.Rs already have won at Le Mans, Daytona and Sebring in 2015

DETROIT (June 23, 2015) – Le Mans, Daytona and Sebring. Each is a premier endurance event on the global sports car calendar, and Corvette Racing has secured victory in each so far in 2015. Fresh off an eighth class victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, Corvette Racing returns to the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship for the Sahlen’s Six Hours of the Glen from Watkins Glen International.

When Jan Magnussen’s throttle stuck on the Porsche Curves at Le Mans last Thursday sending his No.63 Corvette C7.R into the wall, the resulting damage was significant enough to cause Corvette Racing to withdraw the car from race at Le Mans. Now we are learning that the Corvette won’t be ready for the upcoming TUDOR race at Watkins Glen later this month either.

The good news is that Larbre Competition will be loaning Corvette Racing their C7.R for the six hour race on June 28th.

The Ford GTs are coming! Is it time for Chevrolet to Expand Corvette Racing?


Ford Motor Company has just announced an extensive racing program for their new Ford GT super car. Ford will attack both the Tudor United SportsCar Championship and the World Endurance Championship, each with a two-car effort under the auspices of Chip Ganassi Racing. Their real target, however, is Le Mans in 2016, the fiftieth anniversary of the earlier Ford GT’s first win and podium sweep. To take a car that has yet to turn a wheel in anger and make it into a fast and reliable racer to compete at the top level of the sport is a prodigious undertaking, even for an organization as experienced as Chip Ganassi Racing. But, as more information comes out, it is apparent that Ford has been hard at work under the radar and may be further along in the car development than we know.
