There are Corvettes, and then there are Corvettes.
How about a bright orange 2013 Corvette DP, for example?
Wouldn’t we all like to have one of those parked in our driveway?
Well, for DaytonaPrototype4, a new member of Corvette Forum, that dream became a reality in mid-May.
Seems he is buddies with Bill Hubbel, who has his own racing team and competes in Daytona Prototypes around the globe.and asked DaytonaPrototype4 if he wanted to co-drive his car.
DaytonaPrototype4 says he had the opportunity to get some seat time in the car at Daytona during the annual Celebration Exotic Car Festival in April, then he and Bill competed in Homestead, including a first-place finish in one of the sprint races and a hard-fought fourth in the endurance race.
DaytonaPrototype4 says he fell in love with that car and “knew that somehow I had to have one.”
He says a 2013 Coyote DP just happened to come available, “and incredibly it was chassis number 4, and competed as race number 4, the same number I have been racing with since the late 80s.”
The car just happened to be his favorite color – orange.
“It was meant to be!” DaytonaPrototype4 exclaimed.
The car was delivered to him in mid-May, “and I’m so excited I can hardly sleep!” DaytonaPrototype4 says.
His first time on the track in the new ride will be at Watkins Glen in June.
“A huge THANK YOU to Bill for getting me hooked!” DaytonaPrototype4 concludes.
