LAKEVILLE, Conn. (July 17, 2021) – Antonio Garcia and Jordan Taylor won a weather-shortened Northeast Grand Prix at Lime Rock Park on Saturday for Corvette Racing, the fourth win of the season and third in a row for the No. 3 Mobil 1/SiriusXM Chevrolet Corvette C8.R.
ANTONIO GARCIA, NO. 3 MOBIL 1/SiriusXM CHEVROLET CORVETTE C8.R – GTLM RACE WINNER:YOU ARE ON AN INCREDIBLE STREAK.“Yes, last year was an amazing season and this year for sure, the C8.R is working really good. We didn’t know what the race would be like, and I ended up doing only like 10 laps, if that. Still, Jordan did an amazing two stints there and drove really, really good. Tire degradation was very bad, but he drove really good. I’m very pleased with that.”
JORDAN TAYLOR, NO. 3 MOBIL 1/SiriusXM CHEVROLET CORVETTE C8.R – GTLM RACE-WINNER:YOU HAD A GREAT TWO STINTS THERE HOLDING OFF YOUR TEAMMATES AND BUILDING A LEAD. IS IT JUST CLICKING BETWEEN YOU AND THIS CAR RIGHT NOW IN EVERY WAY?“I think just the No. 3 car in general is clicking very well, obviously. We’ve had four out of five wins this season but just as easily we could have lost all those wins. I think everyone is executing on every level. On track, Antonio and I and the guys on the team are doing a great job on the pit stops and strategy. They’re doing a great job. So, another Corvette Racing 1-2 and Antonio’s first win here at Lime Rock. We’ve got five or six more to go here this year, so hopefully we can keep the trend going.”
