  • C8.R Starts In 2020 Calendar Year As The Corvette Race Team’s IMSA Entry

    The C8.R will be racing in IMSA next year, as the C7.R finishes up its fabulous, multi-championship run this year.

    The following article is now the third credible source that stated that the C8.R be racing next year. Not saying that we might not see it at some point this year, but to win championships, one needs points. As noted below, per Tommy Milner, the goal of the Corvette C7.R team this year is to again win a championship, so unless they are literally so far in advance on all three (Driver, Team and Manufacturer) Championships that it is mathematically impossible for any competitor to get even one, it is unlikely that we will see the C8.R substitute for the C7.R at one of the Championship races.

    [Quote=gmauthority]Milner is hoping to win the Rolex 24 and the GTLM championship this year – as is Corvette Racing’s goal each season, he explained. ‘Winning the Rolex and the GTLM championship are goals for Corvette Racing each season,” he said. “I’m confident that our test program since Petit Le Mans is going to put us in a great position to do that’.”

    However, will we see the C8.R running in daylight without any camo after the C8’s reveal at several tracks, all would bet definitively so.

    Again, here is the third source saying the same thing that the C8.R is our 2020 calendar year Corvette racing car.

    The 2019 IMSA season will mark the final year of racing for the Corvette C7.R, with Corvette Racing expected to switch to the new mid-engine platform Corvette C8.R for the 2020 season. A prototype for the C8.R has already been filmed undergoing testing at Sebring prior to the mid-engine Corvette’s debut later this year.

    If you missed the thread with its internal video of the C8.R nighttime testing at Sebring:

    Does the C-8 needs to meet a number of units made to be eligible to race in 2020?
    LT2; Ceramic Gray Metallic; HTM Trim Jet Black; T19 Seat Belt Color Black; AE4 Seat Competition Sport Bucket; E60 Front Lift; Q8Q 5-open spoke Carbon Flash; FE4 Suspension Z51 Magnetic Selective Ride Control; Z51 Performance package

      Good question. I do not know the technical number of units, or whether the rules state that something more general like “must have a customer car equivalent for sale at that time.”
      Howeve,r whatever the rules state, in this regard waivers are given right and left. The Ford GT was racing two years before the first Ford GT (current generation) customer car was ever made. Similarly, BMW raced a V8 version in IMSA yet no such motor was customer available while the V8 was being raced.

        Thanks, I was not aware of the concessions given to the Ford GT. But then, the development of the C8 or C8R should not influence the launch date, something else is cooking and I don't know what it is
