Corvette Racing Confirms Full-Season Lineup for 2024 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship

Corvette Racing by Pratt Miller Motorsports has announced its full-season lineup for the 2024 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. The team will compete in the GTD PRO class with a pair of Chevrolet Corvette Z06 GT3.Rs. Alexander Sims will join returning veterans Antonio Garcia, Tommy Milner, and Nicky Catsburg as the team's drivers.

The quartet of drivers has a combined 34 years of experience with Corvette Racing and Chevrolet. They have achieved significant success in GT racing and in previous IMSA competitions. Catsburg, for example, has two wins in the Rolex 24 and the Sebring 12 Hours, as well as three wins and the GTE Am Drivers Championship in the current year's FIA World Endurance Championship.

Garcia has an impressive record of 27 wins, including two in the Rolex 24 and four in the Sebring 12 Hours, with five championships in 15 years with Corvette Racing. Milner has 20 wins, including the 2016 Rolex 24 and Sebring 12 Hours, and two championships in 13 years with the team. Sims has six wins, including one at Sebring this year, and is currently second in the GTP Drivers Championship for Cadillac Racing.

Sims will be replacing Jordan Taylor, who has chosen to return to prototype racing after this season. Taylor has had an exceptional career as a factory driver for Corvette Racing and General Motors, with 33 victories and four Drivers championships.

Corvette Racing's 2024 season will begin with the Rolex 24 At Daytona on January 27-28. The team will be competing with the Corvette Z06 GT3.R, which is based on the production Corvette Z06 and shares common elements with the road car.

Corvette Racing is celebrating its 25th season and has achieved 126 race victories to date. The team currently competes in both IMSA and the FIA World Endurance Championship with the Corvette C8.R.

The full-season IMSA lineup for Corvette Racing in 2024 brings together a talented group of drivers with a strong history in GT racing and a deep connection to the Corvette brand. The team is excited about the debut year of the Corvette Z06 GT3.R and looks forward to a competitive season in the GTD PRO category.
