The Chevrolet Corvette C7.R to be driven by Oliver Gavin and Tommy Milner in the Chinese event on November 18 will be predominantly silver rather than the “Millennium Yellow” in which the cars have traditionally raced.

The livery of the GTE Pro entry incorporates the logos of Chevrolet's new Redline range of special-edition vehicles for the Chinese market.

The Redline range was launched at last year's Guangzhou motor show and a Corvette C7.R show car will be on display at this year's event, which coincides with the Shanghai WEC fixture.

Gavin said: “I’ve driven three generations of Corvette – C5-R, C6.R and C7.R – all in yellow. To see it now in the Redline livery is fantastic.

"It’s cool, it’s new and it’s sharp. Certainly, looking out over the hood for the first time when it’s silver and not yellow is something to get used to".

Shanghai is the first WEC race apart from the Le Mans 24 Hours that the factory Pratt & Miller-run Corvette Racing squad has contested since the Austin round in 2014.

Why the WEC should make space for modern garagistes in 2023

OPINION: There is plenty of excitement over the glut of manufacturers tackling the Hypercar class of the FIA World Endurance Championship this season. The selection committee is set to face headaches over who it decides to admit and who gets turned away from the 2023 entry list, but history tells us that the smaller entrants have a place

The 956 set the bar at the dawn of Group C 40 years ago, and that mark only rose higher through the 1980s, both in the world championship and in the US. It and its successor, the longer-wheelbase 962, are arguably the greatest sportscars of all time.

Why BMW shouldn't be overlooked on its return to prototypes

OPINION: While the focus has been on the exciting prospect of Ferrari vs Porsche at the Le Mans 24 Hours next year, BMW’s factory return to endurance racing should not be ignored. It won't be at the French classic next year as it focuses efforts on the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, but could be a dark horse in 2024 when it returns to La Sarthe with the crack WRT squad.
