The National Corvette Museum (NCM), along with the Grand Sport Registry and the ZR-1 Net Registry will be hosting the C4 Gathering on May 14-16. The 2015 Gathering will be celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the LT5-powered ZR-1 setting a number of new world speed records, including averaging 175 mph for 24 hours.
The Gathering is open to everyone interested in fourth generation Corvettes built between 1984 and 1996. Activities will include seminars, a special guided plant/museum tour, and a NCM Motorsports Park track day, in addition to information specific to the C4 Corvette.
The National Corvette Museum’s 2015 show season kicks off this week with their annual Bash. Attendees at the Bash will get a first look at the 2016 Corvette Stingray and Z06, attend any number of interesting seminars as well as participate in one of several road tours and other miscellaneous activities.
In addition to getting up close and personal with the 2016 Corvettes, attendees can hear all the dirty details of the next model year straight from members of GM’s engineering team who will be on hand to answer any of your questions.
June 25th – 27th is slowly creeping closer and we’re currently just under 3 months away from Bloomington Gold 2015. With the show’s move to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, it’s only natural that a full slate of driving events is planned for this year’s event. In addition to the traditional Gold Tour, Gold Autocross, and GM Test Drives attendees can now also take part in several other activities on the legendary Brickyard track as well.

C3 Corvette Race Cars entering the 2015 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance. The sounds of L88 Corvettes are intoxicating!
Sebring International Raceway is one of the oldest continuously operating racetracks in the U.S., holding the country’s first endurance race way back in 1950. The initial 6-hour race format was expanded to 12 hours in 1952 and now, some 63 years later, it remains as one of the world’s top sports car endurance races. The latest Twelve Hours of Sebring begins at 10:40 a.m. on March 21, 2015 when 47 cars will take the green flag for 12 hours of non-stop, door-to-door racing.
For the 63rd time, gearheads assembled in Detroit for the annual automotive spectacle known as Autorama. Like the groundhog that doesn’t see its shadow, Autorama signals that spring time and the car show and cruising seasons are right around the corner. Thousands of cars – customized, restored, and factory originals alike – invade Cobo Hall each year in hopes of taking home one of the many awards.
Attendees at next weekend’s Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance in Florida will have the chance to see one of the most well-known Corvettes of all time. Mid America Motorworks will be showing off their famous 1968 Rebel L88 racer during their 20th anniversary show. 2015 will mark the first time that The Rebel L88 has been displayed at Amelia Island.
