Press Release:

CORVETTE RACING AT LE MANS: Iconic Team Going for Ninth Class Win
Familiar entries and lineup for program’s 19th straight appearance

Rockenfeller, Fässler join full-season roster at Le Mans
Corvette Racing an eight-time winner in French enduro
Biggest race of Corvette Racing’s 20th season

DETROIT (April 18, 2018) – Corvette Racing will look to write another chapter in its history book at the 24 Hours of Le Mans this year as the team today confirmed its GTE Pro entries into the annual French endurance classic. The French countryside will echo with the sound of the familiar Chevrolet engines in both the team’s Corvette C7.Rs as Corvette Racing tackles Le Mans for the 19th consecutive season in search of a ninth victory.

The lineup for Corvette Racing will look familiar those that followed the team in the first two events of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. Antonio Garcia, Jan Magnussen and Mike Rockenfeller will team in the No. 63 Mobil 1/SiriusXM Chevrolet Corvette C7.R while Oliver Gavin, Tommy Milner and Marcel Fässler share the No. 64 Corvette. The rosters for each car were the same at the Rolex 24 At Daytona and the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring to start the IMSA season.

“Corvette Racing is honored to compete for the 19th consecutive year at the 24 Hours of Le Mans,” said Mark Kent, Chevrolet Director of Motorsports Competition. “A consistent lineup of drivers between our IMSA campaign and Le Mans gives us the best chance for our ninth victory. All six have multiple Le Mans victories. That along with the experience of the Corvette Racing crew and engineering team are what we believe to be the optimum combination of talent to win again at Le Mans.”

With eight victories in 18 previous Le Mans starts, Corvette Racing has long been GT racing’s prominent program in endurance racing. That is backed up by eight additional runner-up finishes in the event. All totaled, Corvette Racing has 107 victories around the world and swept the last two Manufacturer, Driver and Team championships in the GT Le Mans (GTLM) category of the IMSA WeatherTech Championship. Gavin and Milner are coming off the team’s first victory of 2018 at Long Beach.

Each of the six Corvette Racing drivers own exemplary records at Le Mans:

Antonio Garcia: Three victories in 12 appearances – 2008, 2009 and 2011; runner-up in 2014; third place in 2017
Jan Magnussen: Three victories in 19 appearances – 2004-06; runner-up in 2003, 2007, 2008 and 2014; third place in 2017
Mike Rockenfeller: Two victories in eight appearances – 2005 and 2010; third place in 2012
Oliver Gavin: Five victories in 17 appearances – 2002, 2004-06, 2015; runner-up in 2003; third place in 2001 and 2008
Tommy Milner: Two victories in nine appearances – 2011 and 2015
Marcel Fässler: Three victories in 12 appearances – 2011-12 and 2014
