The Chevrolet Corvette C8.R race car has arrived, and it is a doozy. The Corvette racer is all set to make its debut at the Rolex 24 at Daytona on January 25, 2020. But before it lays the smackdown on the race track, the Corvette C8.R takes its turn under the spotlight where its properly getting the attention it deserves. The Corvette C8.R isnt just a race car; it also happens to be Chevrolets first-ever mid-engine race car to compete in IMSAs GTLM class. Its also Chevrolets first clean sheet race car design racer since the C5.R debuted in 1999. Through all these firsts, the Corvette C8.R racer takes its place as Chevrolets next warhorse, succeeding a race car the Corvette CR.7 that won 16 races in its time, including the 2015 24 Hours of Le Mans. Can the C8.R replicate that kind of success? Only time will tell. For now, lets enjoy the fact that the C8.R is here, and its ready to stake its claim as the next great Corvette racer.
