Corvette Racing to Skip the FIA WEC 6-Hour Race at COTA


We were pretty excited last year when Corvette Racing signed up their third C7.R chassis for duty in the FIA World Endurance Challenge Race at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas. The all-American driver roster included Tommy Milner and the two Taylor brothers and was referred to as “Team America”.

But according to a report by Sportscar365, Corvette Racing will not be entering a Corvette C7.R as a wildcard in this year’s FIA WEC race which takes place September 19th.

[VIDEO] Wall Street Journal Reporter Tests Apple CarPlay in 2016 Corvette Stingray


Joanna Stern of The Wall Street Journal recently got one of those dream assignments for a reporter: driving a 2016 Corvette Stingray convertible for a week ostensibly to see how good the new Apple CarPlay system works.

The Stingray, you may recall, is one of the first cars to get Apple’s new in-dash software, and while it and Siri still have some growing up to do, Stern overall seemed pleased.

Corvette Racing at VIR - Center Stage for Corvette C7.Rs


GT-only race means Corvette Racing will go for overall TUDOR victory

DETROIT (Aug. 18, 2015) – Corvette Racing – and the rest of the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship’s GT Le Mans class – takes center stage this weekend at Virginia International Raceway. The Oak Tree Grand Prix at VIR is a GT-only event for the TUDOR Championship with GTLM and the GT Daytona class. It means that Chevrolet’s Corvette Racing team – with 97 class victories around the world – is in prime position to win an overall event for the second time.

Corvettes on eBay: Burnt but Still Viable 1957 Corvette Fuelie


‘Tis better than to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all.

That old quotation pops to mind about this 1957 Corvette Fuelie currently being auctioned on eBay.

Just a few months ago, this was a completely restored Corvette, one of just 713 produced with fuel injection that year. It’s also one of just 664 four-speed 1957 Corvettes and has the correct numbers-matching engine.

Then disaster struck, with a dash fire leading to the damage you see in these photos.

[PICS] Here is the New Motorsports Wheel for the 2016 Corvette Stingray


One of the new wheel options available on the 2016 Corvette Stingray is called the “Motorsports” wheel and it’s available on the new Twilight Blue and Spice Red Design Packages as well as through the Genuine Corvette Accessories catalog.

The Motorsports Wheel made its debut at the Bash back in April, but only in the Corvette’s presentation of What’s New for the 2016 Corvette seminar.

Thanks to our friend Rick “Corvette” Conti from Ohio’s Coughlin Chevrolet, we are finally able to check out the new wheels on a Stingray.

CORRECTION: 1960 CERV 1 Sale Still in Play According to Mike Yager


UPDATE: We heard from Mike Yager this morning after we published an article regarding the sale of the 1960 CERV 1 (Chevrolet Engineering Research Vehicle) at RM’s Monterey Auction. He told us that the price was incorrect and that negotiations with a potential buyer are continuing.

We’ve pulled the incorrect article and will wait for final confirmation as to the status of one very cool prototype.

We apologize for the confusion.

 

[PICS] 1972 Corvette Field Car Gets a Second Chance on eBay


Barn finds and field cars.

It’s always seemed to me that when looking at pictures of a barn find Corvette, no matter what the condition, there is an emotion that feels almost magical. The sight of a Corvette sitting outside in a field where it’s at the mercy of the elements brings up feelings that are exactly opposite.

Seeing a Corvette rotting away in a field or backyard is just sad. But thanks to eBay, there is hope that these Corvettes might get another chance.

We’re hoping this 1972 Corvette field car that recently sold on eBay falls into that category.
