DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Jan. 28, 2016) – Corvette Racing and Corvette Daytona Prototypes made it through a treacherous qualifying session unscathed at Daytona International Speedway ahead of this weekend’s Rolex 24 At Daytona. Rain pelted the track for most of the day with the worst of it falling during time trials.

Mention IMSA and Balance of Performance testing and most Corvette Racing enthusiasts roll their eyes while muttering about how arbitrary and unfair the process has been to our C7.Rs. That’s because the previous BoP calculations only took into account timing and scoring data. But for 2016, the process has changed significantly thanks to a new system of individual data loggers which are mandatory on all GTLM and GTD cars.
As a young boy, I used to dream of finding a 1963 Corvette tucked away in a field, hidden by weeds until I found it and then lovingly brought it back to life. Well, here’s my chance.
But ouch, that price tag of $30,000 for these two 1963 convertibles in less than desirable condition seems more than a little steep to us.
Corvette Racing will be back in action this weekend for the 54th Rolex 24 at Daytona so now is the time to start planning on how you can follow the C7.Rs in their quest to repeat last year’s win in the competitive GTLM class.
Here is a comprehensive list of links that will help you follow all the action as well as answer the most pressing question for sports car racing fans? How can I watch the race?
If your 2015 Corvette Z06 just isn’t powerful enough for you, the folks at Lingenfelter Performance Engineering have just the answer for you.
Their new Stage 2 engine package boosts horsepower to 750 and torque to 750 lb-ft, up from the factory levels of 650 in both categories.
Another year has come to an end and with the new year, we have some exciting news to announce from our friends at the Corvette Dream Giveaway.
Dr. David Park of Utah was selected as the winner of two red Corvettes – a 1967 L71 427/435 Coupe and a 2015 Lingefelter Corvette Z06 – plus he received a check for $50,000 to cover the prize taxes as well.
Dr. Park and his family were at the Dream Garage headquarters on Monday where he was presented the keys and titles to both cars.
Our friends at Michelin are poised to have big year in the WeatherTech United SportsCar Championship. For the first time in our recent memory, the performance tire manufacturer will be the sole provider of tires in the ultra-competitive GTLM class which include our Corvette C.7Rs as well Porsche, BMW, Ferrari and the new Ford GTs.
