This weekend is the Roar Before the 24 where IMSA teams descend on Daytona International Speedway to begin testing for the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona and the 2019 IMSA WeatherTech Championship Series.
For the 2018 campaign, Corvette Racing was sporting a “20 Years” sticker in celebration of the team’s 20th anniversary of IMSA racing while a Red, White and Blue “Jake” was featured on the hood. For 2019, it looks like that same Jake graphic is back, but instead of the “20 Years” sticker, Corvette Racing is showing a new graphic featuring the three Driver’s Championships the team has accrued from 2016-2018.
Corvette C7.R driver Tommy Milner shared this photo on Friday showcasing the new graphic:
Corvette Racing announced earlier this week that its full contingent of drivers have returned for the 2019 series with Jan Magnussen and Antonio Garcia driving full time in the No. 3 C7.R with Mike Rockenfeller serving as third driver in the 24-hour race. For the No. 4 C7.R, Oliver Gavin and Tommy Milner will once again be joined with Marcel Fässler.
It’s no secret that Corvette Racing will have its work cut out for them in 2019. But as always, we know the team will be well-prepared and ready to go for the drop of the Green Flag to start the series on Saturday, January 26th.
Stay tuned to CorvetteBlogger as we are heading up to the Roar on Saturday, and then will be back in three weeks to follow all the racing action live.
