Corvette Racing Hoping to Keep Championship Lead at VIR This Weekend

With just three races left in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season Corvette Racing is looking to keep hold of the GTLM Driver’s championship during this weekend’s Michelin GT Challenge at Virginia International Raceway.

Antonio Garcia and Jan Magnussen return to VIR with the No. 3 Mobil 1/SirisuXM Chevrolet Corvette C7.R after dominating last year’s race. The pairing holds the lead in the GTLM Driver’s Championship while Chevrolet is a single point out of the lead in the Constructor’s championship.

“It definitely would help in the championship to have another good race there. We know it will be super-tight. It was last year with several cars. It’s never easy in this class or at that track. Hopefully, our car is fast enough and good enough to repeat what we did last year,” said Garcia.

“It was a fantastic win last year and pole position. Even if we don’t win it, hopefully, we can keep our lead in the championship and extend it a little bit,” added Magnussen.

The Michelin GT Challenge at VIR is set for 1:35 p.m. ET on Sunday, August 27. You can catch the broadcast on FOX Sports 1 or there’s live audio coverage from IMSA Radio and a Corvette Racing In-Car feed available on IMSA.com.
