Nick Tandy may have spent most of his past behind the wheel of arch-rival Porsche, but he’s definitely doing his part to fit in at his new gig with Corvette Racing.

Witness his recent tweets about the remote-control version of the real Corvette C8.R he’s already driven at the Rolex 24 at Daytona and 12 Hours of Sebring.

The British racing driver won’t be returning to action behind the wheel of the actual C8.R until June, so he’s had some time to enjoy his new RC Corvette that he called “an absolute beast” after a recent test run at Silverstone.

The silver remote control car features yellow racing livery, a huge rear wing, a replica 1/7 Arma Felony chassis, and a fully licensed C8.R body built by PROTOform. While it’s not as fast as the real thing, the replica is impressively able to zoom along at speeds as high as 80 mph.

PROTOform also makes other GM bodies that can fit on the same chassis, including a Corvette C7.R, 2019 Corvette ZR1, Camaro GT4.R, and Cadillac ATS-V.R.

The company also has a Rapid Blue C8 Clear Body version coming soon for $85.95, featuring front splitter, rear wing, and extensive decals. You can see it in action at
