Pratt Miller Motorsports Corvette Z06 GT3.R Displays 2024 Race Livery at Sebring Test
At a November test at Sebring International Raceway, Pratt Miller Motorsports gave the world a first look at their new Chevrolet Corvette C8 Z06 GT3.R with a familiar yellow livery and their new Forgeline one piece forged monoblock SS1R-GT wheels. Pratt Miller Motorsports will campaign the new factory-homologated Corvette racecar as part of a 2-car racing effort in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship GTD PRO class, beginning in the 2024 season.
Based on the Chevrolet C8 Corvette Z06 and sharing the road car’s aluminum chassis, the Corvette GT3.R is powered by a version of the Z06’s 5.5L DOHC LT6 V8 engine mated to a 6-speed sequential transmission. It rides on a motorsports-specific double-wishbone suspension system that was engineered for optimal performance at lower racing ride heights and a motorsports-specific 6-piston front/4-piston rear braking system with unique cooling and quick-change capabilities.
Pratt Miller worked with the team at Forgeline Motorsports for several years to develop an application-specific version of Forgeline’s center-locking one piece forged monoblock SS1R-GT wheel that was engineered to deliver optimized performance metrics (in terms of mass, deflection, strength, and durability) specifically for the new Corvette GT3.R. Each Chevrolet C8 Corvette Z06 GT3.R will compete on 18×12.5/18×13 Forgeline one piece forged monoblock SS1R-GT wheels finished in Gloss Black.
