Although we haven’t seen any public activity out of the Corvette production team with the C8 mid-engine prototypes in nearly two months, it appears that testing of Corvette Racing’s C8.R is still a go!
Here’s some exciting video capturing the C8.R testing at Sebring International Raceway during a nighttime practice session. Sportscar365.com says the Pratt & Miller team was in Sebring for a two-day test with its C7.R as it prepares for the 2019 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season.
Tomorrow the debate will be about what kind of engine is powering the C8.R, but tonight let’s just soak up the sights and sounds as the next step in the evolution of the Corvette Racing is being tested right in front of us!
A shoutout to the Lanky Turtle on YouTube for uploading the video:
The new Corvette C8.R being put to the test around Sebring Raceway.
Reports so far this off-season indicate that the C7.Rs will be back to defend their championship in 2019 and the C8.R will most likely take their first official green flag in 2020.
