The start of the new endurance racing season is approaching and all the teams are heavily preparing for the competition, including Chevrolet whose new Corvette Z06 GT3.R will make its debut at the 2024 Rolex 24 At Daytona.
The car will be powered by a 5.5L, flat-plane crankshaft DOHC V-8 engine that will develop up to 600 hp (447 kW), and this engine shares more than 70 percent of its parts with the production Z06 engine.
The Chevrolet Corvette Z06 GT3.R will compete in the new LMGT3 class, the successor to the LM GTE class that was held for the last time this year. Chevrolet will produce two Corvettes in the livery of the Pratt Miller Motorsport team that will compete in the North American IMSA Championship.
Manufacturer has announced that after more than 20 years, it will no longer perform under the name Corvette Racing. It will be interesting to see if Corvette, in a clash with the world’s biggest supercar manufacturers such as Ferrari, Porsche, Aston Martin, BMW, Lamborghini, McLaren, will repeat the success from this season when Corvette Racing won the trophy for LMGTE Am teams.
