C8.R Corvette Racing’s Nick Tandy & Tommy Milner took their third straight victory in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship by winning the Michelin GT Challenge at VIR on Saturday as the late-season roll for the No. 4 Mobil 1/SiriusXM Chevrolet Corvette C8.R.
Tandy went from 3rd to 1st in the span of a contact-filled, half-lap with 50 minutes to go for the winning move. Saturday’s victory goes along with the triumphs at Laguna Seca and Long Beach for the No. 4 Corvette C8.R.
Antonio Garcia & Jordan Taylor, leaders in the GT Le Mans (GTLM) Drivers Championship, finished second in the No. 3 Mobil 1/SiriusXM Corvette.
TOMMY MILNER, NO. 4 MOBIL 1/SiriusXM CHEVROLET CORVETTE C8.R GTLM RACE WINNER:
“Today is all about that guy right there, Nick Tandy.
He made it happen today, for sure. Porsche definitely had pace on us for sure, but when you have got a guy like that who can race like he does,
he got a little bit, but he gave it right back. What an awesome race.
That was a lot of fun to watch. I’m super happy for all of our Corvette Racing guys. We got a little lucky there with the No. 3 car.
I think it was going to be close at the end. What a race!
That was awesome.”
NICK TANDY, NO. 4 MOBIL 1/SiriusXM CHEVROLET CORVETTE C8.R GTLM RACE WINNER:
“Look at this winning car!
First, congratulations to Corvette Racing One-two again.
It was an awesome race.
It shows a way to win a race when you don’t have the fastest car.
Honestly, the Porsche should have won the race.
But honestly, when you kind of lose your brain and start driving stupid, stuff happens.
Luckily with our Corvettes, we kept them on the track and didn’t do too much damage to them, so here we are talking to you.”
