Just buying a new Corvette is one of the most exciting days of an enthusiast’s life.
Of course, we all know we have to behave in our new Corvettes until the break-in miles are up, so that means we can’t take it for a few test runs at the NCM Motorsports Park on delivery day, much as we’d love to.
But now, customers who take delivery of their 2018 Corvettes at the NCM can do the next best thing. That’s right, R8C customers now have the chance to take some touring laps at the Motorsports Park as part of their delivery – but in one of the Museum’s Corvettes that are already broken in so their brand new Corvette remains safe and sound.
The R8C option adds $990 to the price of a new Corvette, but everyone who has taken advantage of the program says it’s well worth the extra money. Now these touring laps, thrown in at no extra cost, add even more value to the package.
In case you aren’t buying a new Corvette this model year, though, don’t fret. You can still take laps around the Motorsports Park as part of a new program being offered to the general public.
We told you earlier this month that the Motorsports Park had received five Corvette Z51s that are available for use on the track – Corvette Touring Laps for $199 and a more in-depth Corvette Experience for $599.
All the programs – for customers and non-customers – are based on track and car availability, as well as weather. (However, R8C customers can obtain a voucher that would be redeemable on a future visit if they’re unable to participate on the day of delivery.)
We have a feeling some great memories are about to be made for many Corvette fans, new owners or not.
