    Corvette C7.R Could Keep Racing Under French Team Larbre Competition

    by Sam McEachern

    With Corvette Racing expected to retire the Corvette C7.R at the end of this season and switch to a new car based on the mid-engine Corvette C8, we predicted this year’s running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans would be the car’s last.

    A front-engine Corvette may continue to race from 2020 and beyond, however, if rumors in the FIA World Endurance Championship paddock are correct.

    According to Sportscar 365, French outfit Larbre Competition may race the Corvette C7.R in the GTE Am class for the FIA WEC’s upcoming 2019-2020 season. The team previously fielded a single Corvette C7.R in the GTE Am category in 2015, 2016 and 2017, but switched to the LMP2 class for 2018 and 2019.

    Corvette Racing team boss Doug Fehan would not say if this would be the C7.R’s last appearance at Le Mans when asked by Sportscar 365, telling the publication the General Motors factory team was “looking forward to that ninth victory at Le Mans with the C7.R.”
    There is a madness to my method!

    Larbre is a class act. They would do a great job with the C7.R’s. I sure hope that happens. Thanks Plasboy for finding/posting!
