Although we have a previous thread from the weekend about the Corvette C8.R’s hot lap prior to the start of Petit Le Mans at Road America on Saturday morning, we wanted to make sure you saw this on-board video posted Sunday by IMSA.
Corvette Racing driver Tommy Milner had the honor of taking the new racecar out for a couple of demonstration laps. This is the first of the two which shows the C8.R taking the track prior to the Grid Walk. He would do another lap just before the start of the race as well.
The C8.R is powered by a new 5.5L naturally-aspirated V8 with DOHC and flat-plane-crankshaft that provides a wonderful new soundtrack. You’re going to want to turn this up!
The Corvette C8.R will debut at the 2020 Rolex 24 at Daytona in January.
