Corvette to retain current driver lineup for 2016

Jan Magnussen, Antonio Garica, Oliver Gavin, and Tommy Milner will all return to the team in 2016.

The four sports car aces will return as factory drivers for the Corvette Racing team in what will be rebranded as the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.

The quartet has been together for half a decade, earning 16 victories including triumphs at Le Mans, Sebring and Daytona. All four drivers have claimed a title during their tenure with Corvette.

“Their ability to work cohesively has resulted in numerous key race wins and championships," a release read. We are proud of the accomplishments these drivers and Corvette Racing have delivered, and we look forward to more success.

“Having our drivers in place provides Corvette Racing the opportunity to maintain its focus on preparing for the 2016 season.

Corvette Racing plans to contest the full WTSCC schedule in 2016, as well as the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
