Garcia lapped the 8.469-mile Circuit de la Sarthe in 3:55.122, edging out Porsche’s Nick Tandy for the fastest GTE Pro lap of the day. The No. 64 C7.R, which won the GTE Pro class at Le Mans last year, was fourth fastest in class.
“We come to Le Mans each year with our list of items and settings to work through to put us in the best possible position for when we come back for the race. That is what we accomplished (on Test Day) with both our Corvette C7.Rs.”
“Antonio going quickest in the class is a good indication of the quality of the effort our engineers and crew have put forward,” he added. “Although we are pleased with today’s results, we realize we still have more work to do. Preparation, strategy and execution are what we have used to win eight times at Le Mans, and it’s what we will count on again this year.”
Garcia was also happy with the result and is looking forward to this month’s race, which he will compete in alongside teammates Ricky Taylor and Jan Magnussen.
“We’re happy with where we are, and we’re well prepared for the race. Now we have a ton of data to go through, but it looks like it will be a great race with a very competitive field in GTE Pro.”
