    Earlier this summer, Corvette Racing announced their participation in the FIA World Endurance Championship race in Shanghai, China. With less than a month until the race, we are learning additional details about the team’s first foray into Asia.

    Sportscar365.com has confirmed Oliver Gavin and Tommy Milner will be driving the single-entry No. 64 C7.R from Corvette Racing. The 6 Hours of Shanghai runs November 16-18 at the 16-turn, 5.45-km Shanghai International Circuit. Gavin has raced at Shanghai previously in other series while this will be Tommy’s first trip to China.

    With Corvette Racing added to the official entry list, that brings the number of manufacturers to six in the LMGTE Pro class with a total of 11 cars on the entry list. Participants include Aston Martin, Ford, Ferrari, BMW, Porsche and now Chevrolet.

    This is the seventh year with Shanghai on the WEC calendar. So far, Aston Martin, Porsche, and Ford have each taken two wins at the circuit.



    The Corvette C7.R is there to help Chevrolet promote its new Redline Special Editions for the Chinese market. Redline was introduced at the 2015 SEMA Show and Chevrolet offers the special appearance package across its lineup of cars, trucks, and SUVs.

    China is a growing market for Chevrolet and GM. Chevrolet has announced it would introduce 20 new and refreshed vehicles in China by the end of 2020. Corvette has never been offered in the Chinese market, but that could change after we learned that GM has trademarked the Corvette ZORA name around the world, including China.

    Here’s a preview of the FIA World Endurance Championship’s Six Hours of Shangai:

      In wonder why the team decided to send Oliver and Milner instead of Magnussen and Garcia? Just curious for we are fortunate in having two excellent pairs of drivers.
      Enjoying my Shadow gray C8. What a car it is.
