One of the hallmarks of the new 2015 Corvette Z06 and the C7.R Corvette race car is that they were developed together utilizing the lessons learned from the C6 Corvette and the C6.R race car.
In a new video by Chevrolet, Corvette Racing driver Tommy Milner and Corvette’s Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter talk about the transfer of technology from the racing program to the production Corvette.
During the National Corvette Museum’s Grand Opening of the Motorsports Park over Labor Day weekend, this guy gets to do two hot laps with hall of fame driver Ron Fellows of Corvette Racing fame.
The hot laps were run on the East track and we get to see one of the highlights of the new course which is the 30-40 elevation foot drop into a left hand turn that has been nicknamed “The Sinkhole”.
During the Grand Opening weekend, it was announced that The Ron Fellows School of High Performance Driving will be offering select programs at the new Motorsports Park.

DETROIT (Sept. 30, 2014) – Corvette Racing closes the inaugural year of the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship this weekend with the 17th running of Petit Le Mans – the annual 10-hour endurance race at Road Atlanta. Saturday’s event has high stakes for the factory Corvette program in the GT Le Mans (GTLM) classes with the Drivers Championship on the line.
Corvette Racing made their first appearance in the World Endurance Championship (WEC) outside of Le Mans recently at the Lone Star Le Mans in Austin, Texas. While their finish at the Circuit of the Americas wasn’t what they are used to and certainly not what they had hoped for, the experience doesn’t seem to have soured Corvette Racing’s interest in more racing in the WEC.
