Corvette Racing has officially announced its IMSA and FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) driver rosters for the 2023 seasons.
The Corvette C8.R race cars will compete for the 25th consecutive season in the IMSA GT Daytona (GTD) Pro class, formerly known as the Daytona Prototype international (DPi) class, while also taking on the FIA WEC GTE Am class. Five drivers have been tapped for competition across both series, bringing a host of endurance racing experience and triumphs to The Bow Tie’s racing efforts.

The IMSA lineup will include Antonio Garcia, a five-time IMSA champion with two victories in the 24 Hours of Daytona, two 24 Hours of Le Mans wins and five victories at Sebring. Four-time IMSA champion Jordan Taylor will take the wheel once again, and two-time IMSA champion Tommy Milner will take control of the Chevrolet Corvette race car, having conquered Le Mans and the Six Hours of Monza.
For the FIA WEC, Nick Catsburg, who has victories at Nürburgring, Spa and Indianapolis Motor Speedway, will take control of the Corvette racer alongside Ben Keating, who has notable wins at Le Mans, Daytona, Sebring among other IMSA and WEC races.
“We learned a great deal this year  about running dual programs in both IMSA and the FIA WEC – all of which will benefit the Corvette brand going forward,” said Laura Wontrop Klauser, GM Sports Car Racing Program Manager. “In IMSA, we will return to GTD PRO against a very competitive group of manufacturers while laying the groundwork for the Corvette Z06 GT3.R. Similarly, Corvette Racing’s FIA WEC program allows us the opportunity to continue growing the global presence of Corvette in a world championship.”
The IMSA season will begin at Daytona International Speedway on January 28th through 30th, 2023, while the FIA WEC season kicks off at the 1,000 Miles of Sebring on March 17th, 2023.
