For more than a quarter-century, Corvette and Corvette Racing have been ever-present names in the biggest sports car races around the world.  Chevrolet’s factory program that began in 1999 and accumulated more than 125 race victories and double-digit championships makes the transition to GT3 and customer racing in a big way: a global footprint in multiple series with the 2024 Corvette Z06 GT3.R.
 
The new GT3 racer – based on the Corvette Z06 supercar – will continue Chevrolet’s presence in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and FIA World Endurance Championship while also entering SRO Motorsports America this season… with plans for further expansion into 2025 and beyond.
 
The Next Phase for Corvette Racing
For a vast majority of the previous 25 years, Corvette Racing existed as a two-car, full-factory program – meaning that in most events, only two Corvettes were racing at any given time. That changes drastically for 2024 with a total of eight Corvette Z06 GT3.Rs competing around the world as either factory-supported or customer teams.
 
Each Corvette Z06 GT3.R entrant will fall under the umbrella of Corvette Racing, leveraging more than two decades of championship-winning experience and excellence. Chassis engineering support will come from constructor Pratt Miller Engineering as well as GM’s Performance and Racing Center, which oversees the engine program for the Corvette GT3 car.
 
Pratt Miller also will manage the Corvette Customer Support program for all Z06 GT3.R teams with full-service parts and engineering availability across all series.
 
The goal of the Z06 GT3.R is to continue the legacy of Corvette Racing across the United States and around the world. The program owns one of sports car racing’s top pedigrees with victories in the biggest events and at the most famous tracks around the world.
 
From 1999 through 2023, Corvette Racing – operated by Pratt Miller Engineering – scored 127 race wins including nine at the 24 Hours of Le Mans and four in the Rolex 24 at Daytona. Those victory led to 14 Manufacturers titles, 15 Drivers championships and 16 Team titles. No team in IMSA history has won more races or championships than Corvette Racing in that span.

“It’s been fantastic to drive the Cadillac GTP car, but it’s great to be able to work with all the team at Pratt Miller again after two years as third driver. I know not only a lot of the engineers and team personnel but also the other full-time drivers and people I’ve worked with before within Corvette Racing.  I’ve shared a Corvette with Tommy and shared a garage with Antonio and Nicky.  It’s great to be going into a driver group where I know everyone and know that we get on well together.  We will push each other hard, so from a performance point of view, it’s really good to know that we will all be on a similar level and eeking more performance out of one another all the time.”

“We’re very pleased with the full-season IMSA lineup in the Corvette Z06 GT3.R for 2024,” said Mark Stielow, Director, Chevrolet Motorsports Competition Engineering. “The drivers have exceptional records and history with Corvette.
