With the C7.R entered in the LMGTE-Pro class, the number of cars in the class total’s 11 with six teams entered in the competition. Five of those teams field two cars each with the familiar foes being the Ferrari 488, Ford GT, BMW M8, Porsche 911 RSR and the Aston Martin Vantage.
Corvette Racing fielded a single entry back in November at the Six Hours of Shanghai in which the familiar Yellow and Black livery was changed to Chevrolet’s “Redline” livery as part of a special promotion which Chevrolet China. That race featured Oliver Gavin and Tommy Milner battling the regular WEC entries and a whole lot of bad weather including heavy rain and fog.
No word on what the livery colors will be for the C7.R at the 1000 miles of Sebring, but we are anticipating a return of the standard Corvette Racing Yellow and Black for the race.
