MONTEREY, Calif. (Sept. 12, 2021) – Tommy Milner and Nick Tandy won for Corvette Racing in the GT Le Mans (GTLM) category of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship on Sunday, the first victory for the No. 4 Mobil 1/SiriusXM Chevrolet Corvette C8.R since Detroit in June.
It also marked Corvette Racing’s first victory at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca since 2014. Sunday’s race marked 23 consecutive years of the program competing at the famed circuit near the Monterey Peninsula.
Milner drove the first 58 minutes of the two-hour, 40-minute race before handing over to Tandy, who drove a double-stint to the end. He finished a lap clear of the GTLM championship leaders Antonio Garcia and Jordan Taylor in the No. 3 Mobil 1/SiriusXM Corvette. Each car in the category made two stops due to a two-hour, 26-minute, green-flag run to the finish.
TOMMY MILNER, NO. 4 MOBIL 1/SiriusXM CHEVROLET CORVETTE C8.R – GTLM RACE WINNER: “It’s awesome… finally! We finally get a points win for the No. 4 Corvette. We’ve been close so many times and just had problems. To finally get it is awesome. Nick did an awesome job there at the end. He didn’t have A/C for a bit but he did a great job soldiering through. We’ve been close and had great racecars all year long. Just little things here and there caused us to just miss out. It feels good to finally get that monkey off our back and use this momentum going forward.”
NICK TANDY, NO. 4 MOBIL 1/SiriusXM CHEVROLET CORVETTE C8.R – GTLM RACE WINNER: “The Corvette was fantastic. It’s finally great to finally get a points-paying win. We’ve run so well at so many places, it was frustrating not to get the final result. To finish it off here and stand on the top step to get big points is a great feeling.”
