Jordan Taylor: "Le Mans is the pinnacle in world sports car racing"


Jordan Taylor is one of the most talented sportscar drivers around. A Chevrolet factory driver in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship - with a Daytona Prototype - he will be competing in the Le Mans 24 Hours with the full factory Corvette Racing team.

The American ace will try to clinch a back-to-back victory  the ultra competitive GTE-Pro class in the French endurance classic. At La Sarthe, Jordan Taylor will be sharing the #64 Corvette C7.R with the team's full season competitors in the IMSA series, Oliver Gavin and Tommy Milner.

Jordan Taylor gaves his thoughts about the Le Mans event and the level of competition in GTE-Pro

It’s hard not to say the lasting image of last year’s race is standing on the podium and looking at the crowd. You get goosebumps just thinking about it, and then when you’re actually able to see it, it’s so surreal. 

When I was up there in the moment, it was hard to believe. I’m glad I took some pictures and video of it because it all goes blurry when you’re up there and that excited. Hopefully next time I’ll be a little more relaxed where I can savor it a bit more. 

Le Mans is the pinnacle in world sports car racing, and GTE Pro when you look at the field and the talent, every single car can win. When you’re looking at something like that, it’s intense and everyone has be on their game. There can be no mistakes.
