Corvette Racing has revised its driver line-up for the 2010 season after announcing the signing of Emmanuel Collard for three races.

Collard will race alongside Oliver Gavin and Olivier Beretta for the events at Sebring, Le Mans, and Petit Le Mans while Antonio Garcia will return as the third driver with Johnny O'Connell and Jan Magnussen in endurance events.

Canadian Ron Fellows, a charter member of Corvette Racing, will continue with the team in an ambassadorial role.

"We are pleased to welcome Emmanuel back to the GM Racing family," said Corvette Racing programme manager Doug Fehan. "He has proven his ability at all levels of racing, and he understands the demands and discipline of endurance racing. He will be a valuable addition to our international line-up of championship-winning drivers."

Collard, who previously represented GM during his time with the Cadillac LMP team, said he was delighted to join the team.

"I'm very happy to join Corvette Racing for the 2010 endurance classics," he said. "Corvette has been the most successful car make and team in GT racing for over ten years now, so I'm obviously thrilled to be a part of this team.

"The Corvette C5-R and C6.R have been the absolute benchmarks in GT1 racing, and the new GT2 Corvette C6.R is already heading in that same successful direction. I hope my experience with GT2s from the past seasons can help Corvette secure class wins in the three endurance races."
