Next year, Chevrolet is set to enter its new Corvette Daytona Prototype into the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship and now the first photos of the car have been revealed.
The new Chevrolet Corvette Daytona Prototype will be based on the seventh-generation Corvette road car but in traditional Daytona Prototype fashion, it’ll be barely recognisable as a Corvette beyond the headlights and taillights.
Discussing the upcoming racer, Chevrolet’s director of racing Mark Kent said, “The relationship Chevrolet’s racing programs have to our auto production lines is extremely important. That relevance of race car to showroom is a hallmark of our racing heritage.
“The success of the Corvette Daytona Prototype program is a point of pride for Chevrolet, Having the Corvette C7 DP competing for overall victories enhances the perception of the Corvette brand and allows America’s sports car to compete for overall victories in North America’s most important endurance events,” he said.
