The IMSA WeatherTech Sportscar Championship is set to wrap up this weekend with the 2018 Motul Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta. Let’s take a trip back to the previous round at Laguna Seca and see where Corvette Racing stands heading into the final ten hour endurance race.
Corvette Racing has been one of the most dominant forces in North American sportscar racing ever since the iconic Corvette C5-R made its debut in the 1999 America Le Mans Series.
It should come as no surprise that Chevrolet Canada has been a longtime supporter of sportscar racing at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park (CTMP), dating back when the track was known as Mosport.
My friend Roland and I were lucky enough to win the ultimate experience at this year’s IMSA Mobil 1 SportsCar Grand Prix weekend at CTMP: a hot lap in a Chevrolet Corvette Z06 with retired Corvette Racing driver Ron Fellows at the wheels!
New GT Cars for the IMSA 2017 WeatherTech Sports Car Championship
The 2017 IMSA WeatherTech Sports Car Championship is underway! Rolex 24 at Daytona qualifying just wrapped up today. We will be seeing some new cars in both GT Daytona and GT Le Mans classes for the race.
Chevrolet just set a 7:29.60 lap time around the Ring with the 2017 Camaro ZL1, ~12s faster than the previous gen ZL1, leaving rival muscle cars and even some exotic hardware in the dust
I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised at how fast the 2017 Camaro ZL1 is around the ring. The new Camaro SS 1LE proved just how capable the Alpha platform can be by matching the Porsche Cayman GT4’s time at this year’s Car & Driver Lightning Lap while beating out the Audi R8 V10 Plus, BMW M2 and Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat.
