The series’ fourth round, the American Le Mans Northeast Grand Prix, will be contested on Saturday, July 7, in the tight confines of Lime Rock Park.

We (and Chevrolet among others) consistently refer to the Corvette at America’s Favorite Sports car. But it’s not just America that Corvette owners love to show their pride and joy. We received an email recently from Hans Tore Tangerud who shared with us a ton of photos from the 20th Anniversary of the Norwegian Corvette club. Want to see what a first class Corvette show looks like? Check out the pics after the jump!
The great thing about Corvettes is that they appeal to just about everyone. That means sometimes that what one person deems an “ordinary” Corvette might be the “King of the Hill” to another person.
