Corvette likely moving to GT2 class

Corvette Racing appears increasingly likely to move from the GT1 class to GT2 as early as the middle of next season. A proposal is on the table that would see the existing Corvette C6.R GT1 car race in the American Le Mans Series–up to and including the 24 Hours of Le Mans–before Chevrolet switches to a GT2 version.

The new car, developed, as was its predecessor, by Pratt & Miller, then would take part in selected ALMS races during the second half of the season.

"We will hopefully get to a 95 percent answer very soon," said General Motors road-racing boss Steve Wesoloski. "Over the next six weeks, budgets will be finalized, so we can determine the 2009 program in detail." AutoWeek
