[VIDEO] Corvette Racing's Championship Mentality Featured on Mobil 1 The Grid


The GTLM class in the IMSA WeatherTech Championship Series has shown time and again that it’s the home of the most competitive GT Sports car racing on the planet.

Last year the No. 3 Corvette C7.R with Antonia Garcia and Jan Magnussen captured the Driver’s Championship without winning a race. They were super competitive though and a string of seven consecutive podium finishes put the duo at the top of the standings during the second half of the season. And while the Number 4 Corvette C7.R had its ups and downs in 2018, Oliver Gavin and Tommy Milner recorded the team’s sole victory at Long Beach and finished third in the Driver’s Championship.

Consistancy is a word that Corvette Racing uses a lot these days as the team returns to Sebring and a track where they have traditionally done well.

Our friends at Mobil 1 The Grid have sent us the latest video featuring a preview of the 2019 racing season as they talked to Corvette Racing’s drivers about that Championship Mentality needed to compete at the highest levels of sports car racing.

From Mobil 1 The Grid:

Corvette Racing will head into 2019 as defending champions in the IMSA Championship, despite having endured a less than perfect season in 2018. Such is the level of expectation amongst the team that every race is embarked upon with an intent to win. And that winning mentality is something which is instilled throughout the organisation, as Mobil 1 The Grid found out when speaking with drivers Oliver Gavin, Antonio Garcia, Mike Rockenfeller, Tommy Milner and Jan Magnussen.

  1. I am so proud of the entire Corvette Team.
    My first brand new car was a 1969, 427 Corvette. Back in those days, I always felt that, if GM found out you were racing your car they would cancel your warranty.
    Today, I like to say, they’ll cancel your warranty if they find out you aren’t racing your car.
    What a car.
