UNITING TWO ICONIC SERIES

 
When the green flag fell on the 52nd annual Rolex 24 At Daytona on January 25, 2014, history was made, as it became the inaugural race in the newly formed TUDOR United SportsCar Championship Series.

Chevrolet competes in two classes in the newly formed series: The GT Le Mans class and the Prototype class.

In the GT Le Mans class, the program is essentially the same as it was in ALMS, with Chevrolet backing a two-car Corvette team, using race cars that are based on the new 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 — perhaps the best example of technology transfer in all of racing. Chevrolet engineers used information and data gathered from years of racing and applied it to the street-legal Z06, while the C7.R race teams benefit from starting with a street car that already incorporates race-proven technology.

Corvette also races in the Prototype class, the difference being that they are entirely built-from-the-ground-up racers. The V8 engines, however are similar to the ones you’ll find in a Corvette on a dealer showroom floor. Those engines and prototypes have started the season strong. The Action Express Corvette Prototype, driven by Christian Fittipaldi, Sebastien Bourdais and Joao Barbosa, won the Rolex 24 At Daytona, followed by three more Corvette Prototypes, making it a 1, 2, 3, 4 finish for Chevrolet.
