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.
For Corvette Racing fans, this video is like a return to the video series format the team had a few years back where each race was an episode and we got to come along for the ride. Hopefully, Chevrolet will continue the series so we can see features on the other drivers as well as get to know some of the pit crew and support staff.
But for now, here’s Tommy Milner behind the scenes at the Rolex 24 at Daytona:
