As America’s premier production-based sports car team, Corvette Racing competes around the world on endurance racing’s biggest stages. That tradition continues in 2021 with its 23rd season of competition – and second with a mid-engine Corvette – against the best manufacturers and teams in all of sports car racing. For the upcoming season, Corvette Racing once again embarks on a full-season campaign in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship’s GT Le Mans class with two Chevrolet Corvette C8.Rs that meet current Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO) regulations for GTE cars. The 2020 season ushered in a new era in which Corvette Racing seeks to extend its record of success.

Since 1999, Corvette Racing has won 113 races around the world – the most of any professional sports car team in North America. The totals include eight at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, 22 in the IMSA WeatherTech Championship, 82 in the American Le Mans Series and one in the GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series for a grand total of 105 victories in North America. In 2015, the team also became the first sports car team since 2000 to win endurance racing’s Triple Crown – victories at the Rolex 24 At Daytona, Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring and 24 Hours of Le Mans in the same season. The team also won five consecutive Triple Crown events – Daytona and Sebring in 2015 and 2016, and the 2015 Le Mans 24 Hours. The Corvette Racing record book also includes 14 Team championships, and 13 Drivers and Manufacturers titles.

“During my two previous years in IMSA with BMW, it was clear the level that Corvette Racing is on.  I have such fantastic memories of battling with some of the Corvette guys, and some of those battles went against me!  My appreciation and respect for Corvette Racing certainly increased.  It’s a team that always seemed to be able to achieve a result, even if the track wasn’t one that suited its cars perfectly.  If someone was going to make something out of a difficult situation, it usually was Corvette Racing.  Now, to have a chance to be in that fold and be part of the program with the absolute pros on this team is really quite special.”

Alexander Sims

“Corvette Racing’s 2021 lineup is going from strength to strength.  We have six drivers that are all proven race-winners and champions. They each bring a skill set that will further aid in the development of the mid-engine Corvette C8.R. Clearly, we all are very happy with the results from the 2020 season and we expect bigger and better things in the second year of this fantastic racecar.”

Mark Stielow, Chevrolet Director of Motorsports Competition
