This week on Mobil 1′s The Grid is a video of Tommy Milner showing off his new office, the all new C7.R that made its debut earlier this year at the Rolex Daytona 24 hour. In this video, Tommy gives us a rundown of the changes from C6.R to C7.R and then he takes us into the cockpit for a tour and closer look at the racing technology that is literally at his fingertips.
At the 2014 Corvette Museum’s Bash in Bowling Green, KY, Corvette Racing Program Manager Doug Fehan and No. 4 Corvette C7.R driver Tommy Milner conducted a question and answer session with Corvette enthusiasts. The session covered a wide range of topics including the testing and development of the C7.R and race recaps of the Daytona 24, Sebring and Long Beach.
Want to see what a few laps was like from a drivers perspective during the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona? Tommy Milner, co-driver of the No.4 Corvette C7.R, wore a GoPro camera mounted to his helmet during one of his practice stints. We get to see him suit up and then climb into the new Corvette racecar during a night time pit stop and then drive off to rejoin the field.
We heard that the Corvette Racing team was in Sebring for a private testing session this week and now pics have emerged showing the C7.Rs in camouflage on the familiar blue/white circuit in Central Florida. It’s amazing how much the race cars resemble the production versions and I sure can’t wait to see what they can do in their inaugural race at Daytona next month.
Corvette Racing opted to show off the next generation racer based on the C7 Corvette Stingray with two very public laps during the Monterey Motorsports Reunion at Laguna Seca on Saturday afternoon. With Corvette Racing driver Tommy Milner at the controls, the Stingray took to the track and the feedback we’re hearing online is that the crowd was very shocked and surprised to see the camouflaged vinyl-wrapped race car in the flesh for the very first time.
