Corvette Racing will double up its IMSA GTD Pro presence for next month’s Rolex 24 At Daytona. The factory WeatherTech SportsCar Championship is on a different trajectory for the full season, where only one C8.R is set for IMSA action while the other car heads to a year-long FIA World Endurance Championship campaign, but when it comes to January’s big curtain-raiser at Daytona, Corvette will go for class victory with the familiar Nos. 3 and 4 entries.
Along with the previously announced No. 3 C8.R for Antonio Garcia, Jordan Taylor and Nicky Catsburg, Corvette will field the No. 4 C8.R with Tommy Milner, Nick Tandy, and team newcomer Marco Sorensen from Denmark.
“I’m super happy to join Corvette Racing,” said the 31-year-old Sorensen, whose primary GT racing experience has come with Aston Martin. “It’s a great opportunity for me personally to be with this team, and try to achieve together the result that everyone is wanting – that’s of course winning! I love the mentality of Corvette Racing. It has a great car and from what I know, there are some really great people that I will team up with. So I’m really looking forward to this.
“Corvette Racing has always been a standout team to me because of the way they go racing. They go race and they race hard. They have been around for a very long time so to have the opportunity to go with the team to Daytona is a great one.”
