We were pretty excited last year when Corvette Racing signed up their third C7.R chassis for duty in the FIA World Endurance Challenge Race at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas. The all-American driver roster included Tommy Milner and the two Taylor brothers and was referred to as “Team America”.
