The Quest documentary chronicles the beginnings of Corvette Racing at the famous 24 Hours of Le Mans and then follows Corvettes at Carlisle co-founder Chip Miller as he searched, found and restored the class-winning #3 Briggs Cunningham Corvette racer. Chip had a goal of taking the car and its driver to Le mans in 2010 for the 50th Anniversary of Corvette’s first win, but his plans were cut short when he passed away suddenly in 2004.
The Quest isn’t just a documentary about an old race car. There are a number of sub-plots revealed during the telling of the #3 Corvette and Chips goal to reunite the car and driver at Le Mans. The story culminates with Chip’s son Lance fulfills his father’s wish by returning to Le Mans in 2010 with the Corvette and driver John Fitch.
Corvette enthusiasts who are attending this year’s Bloomington Gold Show at Pheasant Run will have the opportunity to watch “The Quest” at the Mainstate Theater on both Friday and Saturday afternoons. The screenings will be held at 2pm on each of those days and tickets will only be available at the door. Admission is $20 per ticket with all net proceeds going to the Chip Miller Charitable Foundation and the fight against Amyloidosis.
We saw “The Quest” in a theater last year at Corvettes at Carlisle and I can tell you that watching this emotional and heartwarming story surrounded with other Corvette enthusiasts made this a night to remember.
If you’re not attending Bloomington Gold, you can still get “The Quest” on DVD. With Father’s Day rapidly approaching, “The Quest” is a great gift for dads who love Corvettes. You can buy the video at www.QuestDocumentary.com.
Once again, here is the trailer to “The Quest”:
Jay Leno says “The Quest is a love story from beginning to end. Everyone can relate to it, but especially Corvette enthusiasts.”
We whole-heartily agree!
