There’s pretty much nothing cooler than an old Corvette racer. It gets even better when that racer is an old school gasser drag racer like this one we found on Craigslist. This one happens to currently be for sale in Murphy, North Carolina.
We just knew this was coming, didn’t we Corvette fans?
Corvette Racing’s Oliver Gavin and the No. 64 Corvette C7.R set the fastest time in the GTE-Pro during last Sunday’s test as the 5-time Le Mans winner was timed at 3:54.701 (129.990 mph). Antonio Garcia was fourth with the No.63 C7.R with a lap of 3:55.064 (129.680 mph).
You knew it was wrong to steal a Corvette but it felt oh so right!

What makes the race special in the eyes of Corvette Racing drivers
DETROIT (June 8, 2017) – There is no doubt that the 24 Hours of Le Mans ranks as one of the world’s top events in motorsports.

The Bowling Green Assembly Plant wrapped up production on Friday, June 2nd and so now it’s time to take our regular deep dive into the production statistics for the 2017 Model Year.
The new Corvettes of today are superior in almost every way to the previous Corvettes we’ve seen and driven over the years, but there is one thing they don’t have and that’s nostalgia.
We are now 15 years past all the hoopla and celebrations of Corvette’s 50th Anniversary in 2003 when it seems like it was just here yesterday. While new Corvettes and even whole Corvette generations have come to pass, the fact that Chevrolet occasionally would mark a moment in time with a Special Edition Corvettes offers those willing and able a chance to go back in time.
These “on the road” sightings of the 2018 Corvette ZR1 prototypes always seem to come in batches, and now just like that we have two recent videos to share showing the smaller wing ZR1 Convertibles on the streets of Michigan.
Corvette Racing has always prided themselves on the execution of pit stops but this year it seems as though the team has been able to turn up the intensity to 11. We saw from the first race at Daytona how the team routinely pitted in 3rd or 4th position and came out first.
