Is Corvette racing this year?

Corvette Racing will not only compete in the 2021 Le Mans, but will also compete in at least one FIA World Endurance Championship event coming up to it, after skipping the 24 Hours of Le Mans for the first time in 20 years in 2020. The team will be driven by Jan Magnussen, Antonio Garcia and Ma Qinghua in its #1 Starboard-sponsored car.

They return to Le Mans with hope of bringing home another win for the American brand. In the meantime, they'll be looking to defend their GTE-Pro class victory from 2019. That season was also started by a surprise victory at La Sarthe, this time scored by Mike Rockenfeller and Tommy Milner. They were joined on the podium by Richard Westbrook and Viktor Lotterer - teammates of Corvette's new owners during that season, Ford Motor Company.

The news about Corvettes racing program came just a few days after the end of the 2020 season when Ford announced it was withdrawing from sports car racing at the end of the year. The company still plans to participate in some events in 2021 but not in the famous Le Mans race. It is unclear right now if Corvettes will be able to continue without any support from Ford.

However, there are rumors that Aston Martin could become a new partner for Corvette Racing.

Do Corvettes break down a lot?

Chevy Corvettes are expected to last a long time. Owners should anticipate their new Corvette to endure 150,000 to 200,000 miles, according to Motor & Wheels. For most drivers, that's usually between 10 and 13 years. Sports vehicles were formerly regarded for being unreliable and expensive to maintain. However, today's cars are designed with quality in mind from the beginning. They are also very reliable and affordable to operate.

Corvettes have always been popular among active people. Drivers who take their cars off-road or into extreme conditions deserve a vehicle that can withstand such activity. Sports cars are known for their durability and resistance to damage. In addition, there are many parts available for Corvettes of all types. These include: brakes, engine, transmission, and driveline. All components are built to be replacement parts, so there shouldn't be any difficulty finding necessary items when needed.

Corvettes are typically not considered heavy vehicles and don't require much work to keep them running smoothly. Regular maintenance is recommended for preventing problems before they occur. This includes car washes once a month and regular oil changes at prescribed intervals. A vehicle with less than 70,000 miles may need an annual inspection done by a certified mechanic. The cost of repairs depends on how well you take care of your Corvette. Improper maintenance can lead to major expenses.

The best way to avoid breakdowns is to follow instructions given by Chevy mechanics.
