Corvette’s new car in WEC debut

Corvette Racing has signed up for an FIA World Endurance Championship race in February 2020.

The team will debut their new C8.R i the FIA WEC at Circuit Of The Americas near Austin, Texas.

So far it’s just this one race, but they had two starts in the previous seasons, entering one car in China and at Sebring, ahead of the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The IMSA and FIA WEC will share Sebring again in March 2020, so it’s not unlikely for them to do another programme.

Corvette Racing hasn’t announced the drivers for this race yet.

This will once again mark 31 entries for the FIA WEC. There are currently just 30 active full-season cars, but there was a second Rebellion racing at Silverstone. That car is expected to return for Spa Francorchamps. There were no extra entries at Fuji, while Shanghai saw an extra Porsche from the Proton Competition. G-Drive Racing brought their LMP2 car to Bahrain, and they are expected to be back at Spa Francorchamps too in April 2020.

The FIA WEC round at COTA will be run on 23 February 2020.
