Oliver Gavin and Tommy Milner have been confirmed as drivers for Corvette Racing’s entry in next month’s Six Hours of Shanghai.
As revealed by Sportscar365 earlier this month, the longtime driver pairing will pilot the team’s solo No. 64 Corvette C7.R in the fifth round of the FIA World Endurance Championship season.
The Pratt & Miller squad, which will be making its Asian debut, will have a special ‘Redline’ livery on its GTE-Pro class entry for the race, as a promotion within the Chinese market.
It is one of 35 cars on the entry list for the final WEC race of the 2018 calendar, marking a record entry for the Shanghai event.
James Allen will continue with DragonSpeed, taking the seat of Henrik Hedman in the No. 11 BR Engineering BR1 Gibson alongside Ben Hanley and Renger van der Zande, who returns to action after missing Fuji due to the clashing Motul Petit Le Mans event.
A third driver, meanwhile, has yet to be announced in the No. 4 ByKolles CLM P1/01 NISMO alongside Tom Dillmann and Oliver Webb.
James Rossiter joined Dillmann and Webb in the LMP1 non-hybrid at Fuji although is not expected to be part of the lineup for Shanghai.
As expected, Ginetta is again absent from the entry list, with neither of CEFC TRSM Racing’s full season entries appearing for the entrant’s home race.
Loic Duval returns to the No. 28 TDS Racing Oreca 07 Gibson after the DTM clash in Hockenheim, with Tom Blomqvist again subbing in the No. 82 MTEK BMW M8 GTE for Augusto Farfus, who will be taking part in the FIA GT World Cup in Macau that weekend.
Enzo Guibbert will become the fifth different driver in as many races to drive for Larbre Competition in its No. 50 Ligier JS P217 Gibson, while the third driver in the No. 88 Dempsey-Proton Racing Porsche 911 RSR has also yet to be confirmed.
