CORVETTE RACING AT LE MANS: Tommy Milner Quote

No. 64 Chevrolet Corvette C7.R retired after crash in 17th hour

Corvette Racing’s No. 64 Konica Minolta/Mobil 1/SiriusXM Chevrolet Corvette C7.R has been retired following a crash in the 17th hour of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Driver Tommy Milner returned to the team garage under his own power. He, Oliver Gavin and Jordan Taylor had been running as high as fifth in GTE Pro.

TOMMY MILNER, NO. 64 KONICA MINOLTA/MOBIL 1/SIRIUS-XM CHEVROLET CORVETTE C7.R: "First and foremost, I’m happy to be in a Corvette. This Corvette Racing team and the group at Chevrolet build the safest cars. We’ve seen some big wrecks here over the years and all our drivers have walked away fine. So I feel fortunate in that regard. I’m pretty disappointed that our race has ended the way it has. You never want to be in the car when something like that happens. We had just made some setup changes to try and get some more speed out of the car. It was just driver error. I should have done a better job of keeping the car under control but couldn’t do it today. I’m just disappointed for my teammates and the crew guys for having our race end like this. You always want to finish the race no matter what. So it’s definitely disappointing."
