Video: Get an Insider’s Look at the Corvette C7.R’s Development
When it comes to Corvette Racing, there are two things to consider. First, Corvette Racing’s track record: Nine team championships and eight driver championships mean the factory-backed Corvette Racing team is the most successful organization in American Le Mans Series history. Corvette Racing has also won the Rolex 24 at Daytona, and they’ve earned seven class victories at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
The second thing to consider is progress; namely, the technological progress that has been made since the C6.R was introduced. Just like the production C7 Corvette is a leap ahead of the C6 Corvette, the Corvette C7.R is a hefty jump forward for Corvette Racing.
Combine a lethal track record with a bonkers car ready for its inaugural race this weekend at the 2014 Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona International Speedway, and you just know the C7.R is going to rip the competition a new gluteal cleft.
Pratt & Miller Engineering, the company that developed and built the Corvette C7.R race car, has just released a video that gives you a peek into its development. Watch the video, and try not to feel the excitement of all the winning that is about happen this season in the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship series.
