I’ve covered the Corvette Racing Corvette C6.R. This is the 2012 iteration.
The engine difference between the two versions are subtle. A slight bump in HP to 491 and 485 lb-ft of torque. The most noticeable difference is the wider front end…part of the competition adjustment that Corvette Racing received over the winter from the ALMS folks.
And yes, the C6.R still has less HP/torque then the road going ZR1 on which it’s based on. Welcome to regulations in racing.
So, do you think racing regulations are hindering or helping racing these days?
