Our friends at Mobil 1 The Grid have a new video out that profiles the drivers of Corvette Racing with a focus on the addition of Nick Tandy and Alexander Sims for the 2021 campaign. Full-time driver Tandy and Sims, the endurance driver, joined veteran Tommy Milner in the No. 4 Corvette C8.R at the Rolex 24 and Sebring while Antonio Garcia and Jordan Taylor are back with endurance teammate Nicky Catsburg in the No. 3 Corvette C8.R.
Corvette Racing fans are aware of Nick Tandy’s skills behind the wheel of the Porsche 911 RSR and are hoping to see success with the No. 4 team following the departure of long-time captain Oliver Gavin.
In the video, we also hear from Program Manager Laura Klauser who says that Milner’s presence represents stability while the addition of Nick Tandy was literally a steal. “I look at it as a huge win, we kinda stole him from Porsche and we are very glad to have him. He’s done a great job and he brings a little bit of a different experience, so I think we have a great line-up in both cars, but the 4 car especially will be the one to watch this year.”
Corvette Racing will see action next with an exhibition race at the Detroit Grand Prix on Belle Isle Park held June 11-12th.
From Mobil 1 The Grid via YouTube:
When you compete at the highest levels of endurance racing for over 20 years, you do learn a thing or two.
With a six-win 2020 season, Corvette Racing won more races than any other GTLM team, and now head into 2021 with an all-new line up in their #4 car. Oliver Gavin leaves to make room for former Porsche rival, Nick Tandy, and Alexander Sims alongside Tommy Milner. The most competitive team on the IMSA grid just got a whole lot stronger.
