Our friends at Mobil 1 The Grid are featuring Corvette Racing in this discussion on how athe team prepares for an endurance race. Joining the conversation is Corvette Racing’s Eric Miller, the Assistant Race Engineer for the #3 C8.R.

Eric made his way to the Corvette Racing team at Pratt & Miller by working his way up through the various programs. He says his job is to get the team’s race engineer all the information possible to make those critical decisions during the race.

He says once they are at the track, there are some big decisions to be made including tire compounds. Eric says they try to be prepared for everything as anything can happen that requires the team to change their plans for the rest of the race. He says:

“The first hours is all about execution, just making sure that you’re keeping the car together, that it’s performing well, and that you’re getting through the pit stops and drivers are well educated about how the track is changing, and in that last four hours that’s when you’re really working on timings and all the hypothetical scenarios that can come out.”


From Mobil 1 The Grid via YouTube:

Corvette Racing is no stranger when it comes down to endurance racing, but even with years of experience, you can’t always be prepared for everything. This is where the team plays a crucial part in a successful race. As the assistant race engineer, Eric Miller helps with the technical analysis, simulation, and strategy of the #3 Corvette Racing and relays the information back to the race engineer to make the big decisions.
