Corvettes Take On The World In July

Ever since Zora Arkus-Duntov and his team of engineers began pitting their Chevrolet against some of the fiercest competition in the world, the word “Corvette” has meant the team who stands on the top spot of the podium is going to have to earn it.

That is what makes watching Corvette racing so special. Competing on the global circuit has honed Chevrolet’s sportscar into more than a household name around the world; posters hang on young boy’s and girls’ walls in countries far from the car’s hometown of Detroit, Michigan. And rightly so.

This month, enthusiasts are treated to three races happening through the month of July. On a special note, lovers of the long-standing C7 body style can watch the Callaway C7 GT3-R duke it out in the CM.com Circuit Zandvoort (NL) races of the ADAC GT Masters series at Zandvoort, the Netherlands. Qualifying begins tomorrow, on July 9, 2021, and each of the races will be held on July 10th and 11th respectively. You can watch the race on the ADAC GT Masters live feed.

This is the third race in the ADAC GT Masters schedule and Callaway Competition will be fighting for those all-important points to tally up at the end of the season. Callaway is the longest-serving team in the ADAC GT Masters and has won the Driver and Team competitions twice, while no other team in the ADAC GT Masters has claimed as many race wins and pole positions.

Corvette Racing C8.R

Team Corvette is in the lead for the Drivers, Manufacturer, and Team championship points going into the Northeast Grand Prix later this month.

Corvette Racing’s latest supercar will hit the track on Friday, July 16, 2021, for practice and qualifying sessions and then go all out for the Northeast Grand Prix on Saturday. Chevrolet and the entire team at Corvette Racing are working hard to keep their lead in IMSA’s WeatherTech SportsCar Championship points race. They are currently leading in the Driver, Manufacturer, and Team points with BMW and Porsche hoping to claim some of those precious points.

Oliver Gavin and Tommy Milner will be in the No. 4 Corvette C8.R for the IMSA Northeast Grand Prix. Co-driver Marcel Fassler will not be joining his teammates due to the short duration of the race.

Catch all the live action of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship on either NBCSN, NBC, or CNBC. Audio commentary is also available via IMSA Radio at RadioLeMans.com. You can also follow up on what happened on IMSA’s IMSA.TV.

Antonio Garcia and Jordan Taylor will be fending off the competition in the yellow No. 3 Corvette C8.R without help from long-race co-driver Nicky Catsburg.

Be sure to mark your calendars this month to get the full helping of Corvette racing action. Whether here or abroad, Corvette’s are always fun to watch as they give the competition fits on racetracks around the globe. Thankfully, through today’s technology, we’re able to share in the action as the race unfolds. We’ll be watching and cheering each of the Corvette teams, will you?
