This October 4 is the final race of the inaugural USCC Tudor season, and Antonio Garcia will find he has someone else to help in his bid for the Driver’s championship: Australian racing driver Ryan Briscoe. This will be Briscoe’s first time in the C7.R since March, when he was the third driver for the No. 3 entry at the Twelve Hours of Sebring.
Briscoe will play double-duty at the 1,000 mile Petit Le Mans race at Road Atlanta, according to Racer, also serving as the third driver for the No. 4 entry. The team is looking to earn its fifth GTLM class win this season.
“I’m super excited to get back in the Corvette. It’s a beautiful car and a great team to be with,” said Briscoe. “Road Atlanta is a unique track and very old-school. There is no room for error in a lot of areas… It’s a track where you have to be concentrating 100 percent.”
Currently, Antonio Garcia is in second place for the season for total points, as is Corvette Racing’s No. 3 car. The team lost the lead in the GTLM class at last weekend’s race at COTA, when the No. 93 Viper of SRT Motorsports clinched the class win at that track.
