Chevy has made a big announcement today about the Corvette GT3.R race car that will be available for privateers in 2024. This is the first time that Chevy is offering a racing Corvette for privateers to compete in several GT3 championships.

The Corvette Z06 GT3.R is closely related to the new Corvette Z06, since it’s powered by the same 5.5-liter V8 with a flat-plane crankshaft. It also shares its aluminum chassis and aerodynamic features with the Z06.

“It’s an exciting time for Corvette – first with the reveal of the production Z06 and now confirming the Corvette Z06 GT3.R for customer racers,” said Mark Stielow, Chevrolet Director of Motorsports Competition Engineering. “The availability of the Z06 GT3.R will allow customer race teams the opportunity to campaign a Corvette that has benefited from Corvette Racing’s rich history.”
