C8.R Readying for their first outing
Both the yellow number 3 C8.R, driven by Antonio Garcia, Jordan Taylor, and Nicky Catsburg, and the silver number 4, driven by Oliver Gavin and Tommy Milner as its full-time drivers and Marcel Fässler, who fills out the driving team for the Michelin Endurance cup rounds, have now been shown by GM.
Both C8.R’s will compete in the GT Le Mans class of the 2020 IMSA Weather Tech SportsCar Championship. Their first big test will be at the Rolex 24 at Daytona.
Taylor, who replaces Jan Magnussen in a new-look lineup aboard the #3 C8.R, stressed that achieving reliability would be the first challenge for the team, but he feels the base level of the mid-engined racer is already strong.
“The C8.R is obviously still very new, so reliability is always the first question,” said Taylor, who will compete alongside Antonio Garcia and another newcomer, Nicky Catsburg, at Daytona.
