Like every Jake fan, we cannot wait to see the new mid-engine Corvette C8.R when it makes its debut at Daytona next month. So while we wait, how about enjoying the sounds of the 650-hp GT1 V8 as you go on-board the Corvette C5-R at this year’s Daytona Classic 24 Hour Race.

Here is a video from our participation to the 2019 Daytona Classic 24h.
The Pratt and Miller Corvette C5R were built from 1999 to 2004 under ACO LM-GTS / FIA GT1 regulation. Only 11 cars were built plus a test car. They are known as being the best handling GT1 cars. This particular car is chassis 007, built in 2002 as a spare car it was not raced as a factory entry and sold to SRT in Belgium to be raced in Belcar, GT FFSA and FIA GT. Retired in 2008 it was subject to a master ground up restoration by Art & Revs.
