Default IMSA- Pagenaud tipped for endurance drive with Corvette Racing

IMSA: Pagenaud tipped for endurance drive with Corvette Racing

Multiple sources have told RACER Verizon IndyCar Series star Simon Pagenaud will likely have a thundering front-engined Corvette C7.R to keep him warm at the Rolex 24 at Daytona and 12 Hours of Sebring.
The 30-year-old Frenchman finished fifth in the 2014 IndyCar standings for the Honda-powered Schmidt Peterson Motorsports team before accepting an offer to drive for Roger Penskeís Chevy-powered IndyCar outfit in 2015.

Itís believed Pagenaudís new alliance with General Motors has opened the door to join Corvette Racing for the first two rounds of the Tequila Patron North American Endurance Cup, and with IndyCar racing and testing duties expected to consume the rest of his schedule, his participation in the other two NAEC events is said to be in limbo.

Pagenaud, who is on holiday in France, was unavailable for comment, as were representatives from Corvette Racing.

Pagenaudís open-wheel prowess has been matched by his efforts in sports car racing since 2008. As part of factory programs for Acura, Honda, and Peugeot, Pagenaudís driving skills and technical abilities in sports car racing helped rekindle his IndyCar career. With his future set at Team Penske, moonlighting in the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship with the Corvette factory would seem to complement his upward career trajectory.

Corvette Racingís full lineup for the 2015 season should be revealed next week ahead of Rolex 24 testing at Daytona International Speedway.
