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.

Antonio Garcia piloted the No.3 Corvette C7.R to P7 but after an engine was diagnosed with an issue after qualifying and was replaced, the points leaders in GTLM will be starting P8 at the back of the grid.
