[VIDEO] Testing the Corvette at GM's Desert Proving Grounds in Yuma, AZ

Meet Tom Norkiewicz, a GM Test Engineer who’s done this a time or two over the past 22 years. He’s picked up some crafty maneuvers along the way, all while seeing what a car’s made of. In this instance, it’s the Corvette – it’s safe to say he’s being thorough in his evaluations. At GM’s Desert Proving Ground in Yuma, AZ, it’s just another day on the job.

As an engineer at the GM’s Desert Proving Ground, Tom helps to develop the ride control systems for GM vehicles. That means he gets drive fast as part of his work assignment. Some people have all the fun!
