According to a recent claim by Sportscar365, General Motors will end its factory Corvette

GM's head of racing competition engineering, Mark Stielow, said that the carmaker 

would be able to concentrate on customer teams for the Chevy Corvette Z06 GT3.R 

after deciding to part ways with the whole official Corvette Racing squad. Consequently,

, Stielow said that GM would no longer provide factory assistance to the Corvette Racing

 teams competing in the FIA World Endurance Championship and the IMSA WeatherTech

 SportsCar Championship, which now run Corvette C8.R racing cars.

In an interview, Stielow said, "We're going to have a true customer program because we're moving

 "I wanted to keep the launch slow, but very high quality; my team wanted to be very enthusiastic 

and build a lot of cars.""We're going to have a pool of Corvette drivers [that will race 

with customer teams], but we're not going to have a fully factory-funded Corvette race

provide some help to other teams, but it won't be as generously supported as Cadillac's factory effort.
