[VIDEO] Corvette Tour Delivery Options

by Keith Cornett on March 8, 2010

Thousands of people each year come to the Chevrolet Corvette Plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky & the nearby Corvette National Museum to get an inside look at the great American sports car.

Corvette owners can actually watch their vehicle in the process of being built and document its progress as it moves along the line. In many cases, the new owner can actually be the very first person to start it up!

Corvettes = Pride. From the company to the assembly workers to the owners taking delivery. This is where quality starts.

I got an email today from Corvette Racing announcing they are starting a video series to document the team through the 2010 American Le Mans Series and the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The preview video as you will see is very well-done and now I am even more fired up for the first race of the season later this month at Sebring.

Members of Corvette Racing share their passion for racing and what it means to represent Corvette in the American Le Mans Series (ALMS). Featured in the video are Mark Kent, manager, GM Racing, Gary Pratt, chief engineer and co-founder of Pratt & Miller engineering, and Doug Fehan, program manager, Corvette Racing. This is a preview of what to expect from the Corvette Racing Team as they document the ALMS season in their upcoming video series.

Gavin Narrates a Hot Lap of Sebring in the GT Corvette C6.R

by Keith Cornett on February 20, 2010


Here is a video of the new 5.5L GT Corvette C6.R running a hot lap around Sebring International Raceway during the teams recent practice session. Our friends at Bad Boy Vettes hooked up with driver Oliver Gavin to give us an inside look at what the driver is seeing and doing as he makes his way around the historic and very bumpy 3.7 mile 17-turn road course. OG makes it sound easy but try doing this for 12 hours with a full field of competitors. At least the drivers have something to look forward to as they round Turn 10!

Retired 4-Star US Army General Richard Cody, former commander of the 101st Airborne and Army Vice Chief of Staff, recently toured the Bowling Green Assembly Plant where the Corvette is assembled. Cody was in town to pick up his new 2010 Grand Sport Convertible and took delivery of the Torch Red sports car at the National Corvette Museum across the street. The visit allowed the General to meet and greet the people responsible for building the new Corvette, many of whom are veterans themselves.

Official Photos of the Corvette Racing C6.Rs at Sebring Test

The Corvette Racing team was recently in Central Florida for a private test at Sebring International Raceway. During the session, these official photos were taken. My favorite of the set is the one I posted above with Johnny O’Connell behind the wheel of a Jetstream Blue ZR1 flanked by the two Corvette C6.Rs. We also get a chance to see new driver Manu Collard wearing the Crossed Flags for the first time too!

I kind of feel bad for the guy. He just wanted to go fast. Did you hear those tires when he stomped on it?
