At the 2014 Corvette Museum’s Bash in Bowling Green, KY, Corvette Racing Program Manager Doug Fehan and No. 4 Corvette C7.R driver Tommy Milner conducted a question and answer session with Corvette enthusiasts. The session covered a wide range of topics including the testing and development of the C7.R and race recaps of the Daytona 24, Sebring and Long Beach.
During the Q&A, Dr. Fehan discusses everything from the C7.Rs development to thoughts on the sinkhole inside the Museum’s sky dome. He’s very excited about the progress of the NCM Motorsports Park which he has championed since Day 1. One lighter moment had him requesting submissions from the audience for naming the inflatable Corvette Racing paddock that he affectionately referred to as “Doug’s Golf Dome”.
Tommy was spot-on as usual and always does a great job of communicating to the standing room only crowd his experiences behind the wheel. His back and forth with Doug was pretty funny as well. Doug complained that drivers don’t pay for damage and Tommy said he was okay with that. Doug then reminded Tommy that crashes leave less money for drivers pay and then Tommy changed his tune immediately. Good times!

Following the Q&A Session, fans stuck around for an auction which included signed models, artwork and unique commemoratives like this metal print from Generations Auto Accessories which brought in a winning bid of $3,000!
