Chevrolet Corvette C7.R enters TUDOR United SportsCar Championship

History-making moments are rare. Being part of them is even more rare. History will look back at the 2014 Rolex 24 At Daytona as the moment when the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship debuted and the day racing forever changed. It is a challenge that offers a new vision for sports car racing, a challenge that Chevrolet is willing to take through entering competition with the 2014 Corvette C7.R. This very precise vehicle already represents a degree of freedom, an expression of personality and the symbol of an individual lifestyle so it doesn’t come as a surprise that it will compete in this championship.

The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7.R entering the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship is covered in a two tone exterior paint and it features a front splitter, a ventilated hood and a prominent rear wing. There are also enough sponsor logos and carbon fiber canards. The powering unit is still kept secret. However, the Flex Fuel badging suggests that it could use petrol or ethanol. Rumours launch the idea that a 5.5-liter V8 engine will be used, the same engine found on the C6.R. The vehicle will enter competition on January 20th so it is more than possible to get some more information soon.
