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.

[VIDEO] Go Behind the Scenes of the Rolex 24 at Daytona with Corvette Racing's Tommy Milner

Here’s a great video from Chevrolet featuring Corvette Racing and specifically American driver Tommy Milner as the team opened the 2015 season with the Rolex 24 at Daytona. Milner is now in his 5th season with the team and is paired with Oliver Gavin in the No. 4 Corvette C7.R. The duo, along with the addition of Simon Pagenaud, earned a third place finish in the GTLM class at Daytona.

In this video, we follow Tommy from waking up and arriving at the track to a podium finish 24 hours after the start of the race. It’s a rare glimpse of what it’s like to be a driver for the Corvette Racing team and how much of a toll a 24 hour endurance race can take on a driver.
