As the C7.R chapter comes to a close with the car appearing in its final race under the Corvette Racing banner, Tommy Milner gave racing fans a treat as he lit up the rear tires and left a huge burnout as he climbed the hill between turns 10-11 during his cool-down lap.
Following the race, Tommy is quoted in the official race recap as saying the following:
“But I felt like we went out on a high note there with a big smoky burnout there at the end for all the fans in (Turn) 10 with the C7.R for the last time. Hopefully they enjoyed that.”
The C7.R doesn’t feel like it was with us too long, having made its debut in racing in January 2014. But is certainly made its impact known, winning at Daytona, Sebring, and Le Mans while also helping to bring home three consecutive GTLM Drivers Championships from 2016-2018.
So thanks for the memories C7.R!
A huge thanks to Andrew Hoetker for allowing us to share his video capturing the event.
