ALMS GT2 / GT / GTE Class 2009-2013

Since their debut in 1999 with the C5-R, all the way to the end of the GT1 class C6-R in 2009, Corvette Racing had accomplished 77 race wins, 54 1-2 finishes, 8 GT1 manufacture championships, 7 GT1 drivers championships, 6 24hrs of LeMans class wins, 7 12hrs of Sebring wins, and 7 Petit Lemans class wins,

With the move to a GT2 category, Corvette Racing's C6.R race cars joined the likes of Ferrari, Porsche, BMW, Jaguar, Viper, Panoz, Ford, Lamborghini, Lotus, and Aston Martin.

Based on the Corvette ZR1 supercar, the gen 2 Corvette C6.R had even stronger links to the production version of America's performance icon than it preceded. The GT2 rules require the use of many production-based components, expanding the opportunities for the two-way transfer of technology between the race track and the showroom. The updated Corvette C6.R utilized the ZR1's body design, aerodynamic package, aluminum frame and chassis structure, steering system, windshield, and other components. The race team had prepared the cars for the rigors of endurance racing with safety and performance modifications as permitted by the GT2 rules.

For 2009 the engine was the same Katch 7.0L LS7.R as the GT1 car with a different crankshaft, reducing the engine to 6.0L  For 2010 the new GT2 rules only allow 5.5L.  Therefore a new 5.5L engine, based off of the LS3 production engine was built in-house at the Wixom Performance Build Center.  For 2011, new ACO rules allowed the use of paddle shift transmissions.
