Fourth Corvette C7.R Confirmed for the 2016 24 Hours of Le Mans


Good news for Corvette racing fans! DailySportsCar has confirmed a fourth entry of a Chevrolet Corvette C7.R for this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans which takes place June 18-19th.

The LMGTE-AM entry by Team AAI was originally slated to bring a Corvette C6.R to France but now the word is out that they will be campaigning the 2015-spec Corvette C7.R that was driven to victory lane last year by Corvette Racing’s Oliver Gavin, Tommy Milner and Jordan Taylor.

So now we’ll get to watch the two factory Corvette C7.Rs in LMGTE-PRO class while Team AAI and the FIA WEC entry from Larbre Competition will both run the 2015-spec Corvette C7.Rs in the LMGTE-AM class.

Team AAI is a Taiwanese team supported by ProSpeed Competition. Last year, ProSpeed supported Team AAI’s Le Mans campaign with two Porsches. SportsCar365 previously mentioned in late 2015 that ProSpeed may be looking at an ELMS campaign in 2016 with an ex-Pratt and Miller Corvette C7.R. Team AAI still has the Corvette C6.R which will serve as their backup car.
