The days of the calendar are flipping by faster than the new C7 can sprint from 0-60mph. August is nearly upon which means that the Woodward Dream Cruise is right around the corner. Along with that comes all of the activities beforehand that makeup the annual Corvettes on Woodward fiesta. Once again, organizer Larry Courtney has assembled 3 full days Corvette goodness for participants.
It’s time for Throwback Thursday where we feature vintage photos of Corvettes. Today’s subject is a one near and dear to our hearts – taking your Corvette racing!
We’re seeing nothing older than a 1965 Corvette in the picture and if you look right in the middle of the photograph, it appears there is one and perhaps two black 1963 Fuel Injected Sting Ray Coupes.

Here’s your chance to buy a C2 Corvette with an unusual past and an unusual look.
The town of Colchester, Conn., says it is ready to get rid of its 1967 Corvette that was used for nearly 20 years as the police department’s DARE vehicle.
A picture of a Cyber Gray 2014 Corvette Stingray involved in an accident has turned up on the Corvette Forum, but details of the crash are sketchy. From the pictures, it appears that a Lincoln Town Car t-boned the Corvette Stingray on the passenger side, causing damage to both cars.
Autoweek was among the group of publications that recently took part in the 2014 Corvette Stingray drive experience held at the Milford Proving Grounds. Their review of the Stingray was published last week and is very favorable to the Stingray. Now we have the video from Autoweek showing many of the on-track exercises they were able to put the Corvette Stingray through.
It appeared that the 2013 Concours d’Elegance of America at St. John’s was going to be rained out on Sunday when Saturday’s storms prevented much of the event set up. Though rain was forecast, after only a brief shower the 374 exhibitors rushed to get their cars displayed on the beautiful but wet fairways of the golf course. Though the temperatures were unusually cool, the rain held off except for a short sprinkle around noon and the wet weather didn’t seem to dampen the spirits of the car owners or the 10,000 enthusiasts who braved the threatening skies and to view some of the finest cars in the country.
Check out this in-depth interview on Trackdown on Shakedown with the always well-spoken Corvette Racing Program Manager Doug Fehan, who discusses with his old friend Leo Parente a wide range of subjects, including the 2014 United Sports Car Racing (USCR) series racing at Le Mans, Corvette marketing, and the ingredients for a successful Corvette Racing driver.
Storms and low-riding Corvettes don’t always mix.
Just ask the driver of this C5 Corvette, who talked to a reporter from WREG-TV in Memphis, Tennessee last week about his misadventures following a major storm that swept through the area.

If you want proof of the value of schooling, then you might want to talk to Paul Plemenos.
Six years ago, at the age of 38, he bought a stock 2006 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 and, despite having no formal racing experience, decided he wanted to race his new sports car.
That’s when he decided to learn from the pros, taking his Z06 to the Bondurant School of High-Performance Driving in Phoenix, Ariz., where he took to racing immediately.
