Corvette Racing was missing from the most recent ALMS race, likely because they were busy preparing their new Corvette ZR1-inspired GT2 entry. We've got an initial analysis of the new, Jakegasmic changes, below.

The most noticeable change to the new C6.R is the loss of the widebody skin, replaced by a thinner Corvette ZR1-inspired body with widened fender flares that gives an overall look that's closer to the stock proportions of the C6 Corvette. Less noticeable changes include a new, smaller rear spoiler that sits above the ZR1 decklid spoiler as well as a rhombus-shaped side exhaust port as opposed to the GT1 car's circular outlet.

It's somewhat difficult to see in detail, but the waterfall-style hood looks to have been made shallower than the GT1 car likely to aid more in engine bay heat extraction than for the previous cars aerodynamic purposes. The front grille also appears to be a bit taller, but it's likely that it has remained at the same height, though some length has been removed due to the shorted width of the car.

It's likely that more detailed photos and info will pop up sooner than later and we'll be sure to bring you the latest and greatest. Look for Corvette Racing's new ZR1-inspired GT2 car to make its racing debut in August at the Mid-Ohio ALMS race.
