We learned in March that GM was working on a system of adaptive aerodynamics for the Corvette, going so far as to submit a patent application for the technology. While our belief has been that this is a feature expected on the C8 mid-engine, the patent drawings did detail the system on a C7 model.
Our friends at Mid America Motorworks have announced an exciting new drag racing event for this year’s Corvette Funfest. To prepare, they are hosting a practice round on Saturday, May 13th and they want you to come out and join the fun! You can race your own Corvette or just watch as other Corvette owners thunder down the 1/8 mile drag strip at Coles County Dragway in Charleston, IL.
Let’s get a geometry lesson out of this Corvette accident.
A silver C4 Corvette convertible caused this utility pole to bend into a vertical obtuse angle after a one-car accident in Winnebago County, Illinois. (An obtuse angle, for those of you who haven’t studied geometry in a long time is more than 90 degrees but less than 180 degrees.)
It will come as no surprise to Corvette enthusiasts that Brembo has once again been named a GM Supplier of the Year.
Brembo, of course, provides the outstanding carbon ceramic braking system on the Chevrolet Corvette Z07 and Grand Sport, as well as the calipers and cast iron rotors on the remaining Corvette line.
One of the big draws this weekend at the National Corvette Museum’s Bash event will be the unveiling of the 2018 Corvette Carbon 65 Edition, a special limited anniversary edition that will be offered on the 2018 Z06 and Grand Sport Models. Luckily for us, we were able to lay our eyes on the new car just a couple of days ahead of its official reveal.
