Corvette Racing is hoping to end its IMSA Tudor United Sportscar Championship on a high note with a win at Petit Le Mans this weekend. A victory in the 10-hour endurance special would give Corvette Racing its fourth endurance race win this year, with the yellow Corvettes having already took victory at the 24 Hours of Daytona, 12 Hours of Sebring and the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Drivers of the No. 3 Corvette C7.R, Jan Magnussen and Antonio Garcia, sit just 10 points out of first with 36 points up for grabs at Road Atlanta. Former IndyCar driver Ryan Briscoe will join them in the No. 3 car this weekend, reuniting the trio that took victory at Daytona and Sebring earlier this year.
Confidence is high at the Corvette camp ahead of Petit Le Mans, and it’s no surprise considering the team’s collective success at Road Atlanta. Corvette Racing has won 11 races at the historic track, nine of them Petit Le Mans wins. Additionally, Oliver Gavin has won there six times, Jan Magnussen four and Ryan Briscoe two.
Also up for grabs at Road Atlanta this weekend is the Tequila Patrón North American Endurance Cup. Comprising of the four endurance races in the Tudor United Sportscar Championship season, Corvette Racing could lock down the trophy after having already won at Daytona and Sebring.
The 18th annual running of Petit Le Mans will go green at 11:15 a.m. ET this Sunday. FOX Sports 2, FOX Sports Go and IMSA.com will carry live coverage throughout the day beginning at 11 a.m. and flag-to-flag radio coverage will be available through IMSA Radio.
