The 2018 IMSA Weathertech Championship Series will get underway on Friday in Daytona International Speedway at the first official test of the year known as the Roar Before the 24. The Corvette C7.Rs have arrived and now we are getting our first glimpse of the new race livery.
The photo comes from crew member David James who shared the photo on his Facebook page.
David only shared the hood of the C7.R which shows a patriotic Jake in Red, White and Blue in the center of the hood:
Back in the day, the introduction of the new racing livery on the Corvettes was a big deal. Today the designs are handled by the Corvette design team and so the changes year to year have been greatly minimized. It’s a given they will be Corvette Racing Yellow with Black aero and wheels. The last few years have seen silver accents around the front quarter panels and last year an American flag motif was included.
