Corvette Racing is splitting the team into two parts in response to rule changesOctober 13, 2022
In response to all the rule changes by IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and FIA World Endurance Championship for the 2023 racing year, Corvette Racing is expected to go from 2 cars per race down to single entry per race.
Confirmation of the immensely successful manufacturer’s plans for 2023 is said to be imminent, and Corvette Racing’s traditional two-car effort at the 24 Hours of Le Mans could be coming with a reduction to a single entry. Factory Corvettes have been a staple of the French classic since first debuting in 2000.
As the top prototype class swells with participants at the 100th anniversary of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, it’s believed the massive global interest in being on the grid for next year’s event will generate a multitude of teams to downsize their entry requests.
2023 will also mark the final run for the current C8.R, and all other cars built to GTE regulations, as a new Pro-Am GT3-based class is in the works for 2024.

This Weeks Owners’ Corner
I had owned a 1972 Nova for over 25 years, but it didn’t have air conditioning. So driving in the summer was not ideal. So I sold it and a couple months later I found a 1991 yellow coupe. It was my 1st time ever in a Vette and I was hooked. Had it for about 4 years and in 2007 found a silver 1998 convertible that only had 25,000 miles on it. Traded the 91 in for the 98 and couldn’t believe the smoother ride. Drove the 98 for 4 years and a had to sell so I could get a vehicle to drive back and forth to work. Iowa winters are not for driving Vettes in. I vowed that I would have another C5. Then in 2019 I retired and found a 2000 yellow convertible and was in heaven again. I moved to the Kansas City area so winter driving is possible and I do get it out often. This one is a keeper, although I really like the C7s, so, who knows!

Everybody talks about the weather, but nobody does anything about it.
Men marry women with the hope they will never change. Women marry men with the hope they will change. Invariably they are both disappointed.
It would be nice to spend billions on schools and roads, but right now that money is desperately needed for political ads.
