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.

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.

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.

Competitors in the Tudor United Sportscar Championship, such as Corvette Racing, put in long, hard hours at the racetrack and traveling around the country from spring until fall. Crews and drivers must endure hot weather, rainy weather, days away from their families, and unbelievable stress trying to make a sometimes cantankerous racecar do what they want it to do. Then, on top of all that, the sanctioning body can suddenly change the balance of performance parameters on your car to make everything that much more difficult.
