C8.R Readying for their first outing
Both the yellow number 3 C8.R, driven by Antonio Garcia, Jordan Taylor, and Nicky Catsburg, and the silver number 4, driven by Oliver Gavin and Tommy Milner as its full-time drivers and Marcel Fässler, who fills out the driving team for the Michelin Endurance cup rounds, have now been shown by GM.
Both C8.R’s will compete in the GT Le Mans class of the 2020 IMSA Weather Tech SportsCar Championship. Their first big test will be at the Rolex 24 at Daytona.
Taylor, who replaces Jan Magnussen in a new-look lineup aboard the #3 C8.R, stressed that achieving reliability would be the first challenge for the team, but he feels the base level of the mid-engined racer is already strong.
“The C8.R is obviously still very new, so reliability is always the first question,” said Taylor, who will compete alongside Antonio Garcia and another newcomer, Nicky Catsburg, at Daytona.

1982 White/Silver Corvette Coupe
What Mike likes about this car:
“I remember well when the 1982 Corvette came out as the last C3 in late 1981. I had been working for a couple of years now cutting my teeth and learning the ropes of the Corvette business. I was then licensed by the State of California in January of 1982. Excited as anyone could be, I leased my first showroom and away I went selling brand new 1982 Corvettes.
Nobody had ever heard of crossfire fuel injection where a pair of throttle bodies fed fuel to the combustion chamber by spraying a mist. Short-lived however as it was only in production for two years.
The 1982 Corvette has lines and refinements no other C3 ever dreamed of. This particular two-toned white and gray has always been a favorite of mine as I had one brand new. As part of the Tom McNeil “American Dream” collection, Tom before his death admired this Corvette in high regard. These C3’s are the next generation of Corvettes to escalate in price. Buy now, hold and enjoy the ride while they appreciate in value.”
