Forgeline and Pratt Miller Motorsports Announce New Multi-Year Partnership

Pratt Miller Motorsports, constructors and operators of the legendary yellow Corvette Z06 GT3.Rs in the IMSA series, has announced a dynamic new partnership with Forgeline Motorsports, manufacturers of the world’s finest custom made-to-order lightweight forged aluminum street and racing performance wheels. This collaboration is set to kick off at the 62nd running of the Rolex 24 at the Daytona International Speedway.

This new partnership will provide Forgeline brand integration into several Pratt Miller Motorsport team assets including placement on the No. 3 and No. 4 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 GT3.Rs piloted by Antonio Garcia, Alexander Sims, Tommy Milner and Nicky Catsburg with Dani Juncadella and Earl Bamber rounding out the driver roster for endurance events.

In addition, this partnership will highlight content creation, distribution, and community engagement within the digital realm which will also include signage inside Pratt Miller Motorsports podcast studio in Huntersville, NC. It will continue to be the focus for both entities to tell the motorsports story well beyond race weekends.

Based on the Chevrolet C8 Corvette Z06 and sharing the road car’s aluminum chassis, the Corvette GT3.R is powered by a version of the Z06’s 5.5L DOHC LT6 V8 engine mated to a 6-speed sequential transmission. It rides on a motorsports-specific double-wishbone suspension system that was engineered for optimal performance at lower racing ride heights and a motorsports-specific 6-piston front/4-piston rear braking system with unique cooling and quick-change capabilities.

Pratt Miller worked with the team at Forgeline Motorsports for several years to develop an application-specific version of Forgeline’s center-locking one piece forged monoblock SS1R-GT wheel that was engineered to deliver optimized performance metrics (in terms of mass, deflection, strength, and durability) specifically for the new Corvette GT3.R. Each Chevrolet C8 Corvette Z06 GT3.R sold by Chevrolet anywhere across the globe will compete on 18×12.5/18×13 Forgeline one piece forged monoblock SS1R-GT wheels finished in Gloss Black.

Brandon Widmer, Pratt Miller VP, Motorsports: “We are thrilled to welcome Forgeline into our family of team partners. Steve and David are exceptional individuals who have solidified their reputation in a fiercely competitive industry. Their wheels, which we proudly use on our team cars, are a testament to their commitment to quality and performance. Now, we eagerly anticipate the innovative ventures and unique experiences we will craft together beyond the racetrack.”

Steve Schardt, Forgeline Motorsports Founder: “Having the chance to partner with Pratt Miller Motorsports and their fabled sports car team has been something we have had our eye on for a while and felt now was the right time to partner with them. The growing passion for motorsports in the United States is palpable, and we’re thrilled to be part of this vibrant scene. Our goal is to not only engage existing fans but also to captivate new audiences, contributing to the sport’s ever-expanding appeal. In the world of motorsport, every victory on the track is a shared triumph, and we’re excited to be part of this winning formula.”
