CORVETTE RACING AT ROAD ATLANTA: Pole-Winner Quote
Antonio Garcia, No. 3 Corvette C8.R to start first in GTLM for Petit Le Mans



BRASELTON, Ga. (Oct. 16, 2020) – Corvette Racing’s Antonio Garcia captured
pole position at Petit Le Mans on Friday with the fastest time in GT Le Mans
(GTLM) during qualifying for the 10-hour race at Michelin Raceway Road
Atlanta – his first at the circuit.


Garcia, in the No. 3 Mobil 1/SiriusXM Chevrolet Corvette C8.R, set a lap of
1:15.163 to secure the top starting spot in another close fight among the
GTLM runners in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. Garcia, GTLM
Drivers Championship co-leader with teammate Jordan Taylor, was 0.271
seconds clear of Connor De Phillippi in second.


Garcia and Taylor will drive in Saturday’s enduro with Nicky Catsburg.


Tommy Milner finished fifth in the No. 4 Mobil 1/SiriusXM Chevrolet Corvette
C8.R with a best lap of 1:15.856. He and Oliver Gavin were second in class
at September’s six-hour TireRack.com Grand Prix at Road Atlanta.

ANTONIO GARCIA, NO. 3 MOBIL 1/SiriusXM CHEVROLET CORVETTE C8.R – GTLM
POLE-WINNER: “I think it was my best qualifying lap. I had never gotten pole
here; I have been second many times by thousandths or hundredths of a
second! The Corvette C8.R was perfect. It was difficult knowing how the car
would be compared to yesterday. We didn’t have the usual pole prep or
qualifying simulation before the actual session. So we had to do it in the
second practice yesterday, which was almost 24 hours ago. We knew the car
would be OK but didn’t know where we would stack up against the rest of the
field. I would say the first two laps were really good, not good enough for
pole because a couple of guys got me there. I didn’t know if I could go
faster but obviously I really wanted it. That was a really, really good lap.
Sometimes I have a couple of mistakes, but I think today I put together a
whole lap.”
