[VIDEO] Jimmie Johnson Driving Corvette Racing's C6.R

One of the highlights of Wednesday night’s Test Drive: Corvette on SPEED was the segment where NASCAR’s Jimmie Johnson gets behind the wheel of Corvette Racing’s C6.R. Jimmie is no stranger to Corvettes, but from his comments while pacing the road course behind a stock 2011 Corvette ZR1 with show host Tommy Kendall, he is blown away by power and grip of the factory race car.

Up Close and Personal with the Corvette Stingray Concept

By now, most of you should be familiar with the Corvette Stingray Concept that was featured in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Last year the Stingray Concept hit the car show circuit which allowed the public the opportunity to take in the sleek, futuristic Corvette. Great, except for some reason it skipped the show in my hometown of Tampa. So when I saw it featured in an advertisement this weekend, I headed to the Convention center for my first opportunity to get up close and personal with Chevy’s popular Corvette concept.

NCRS Offers Historical Document Services for Classic Corvette Owners

I often preach the importance of documentation when purchasing a classic Corvette because those documents (invoices, tank stickers, build sheets and protect-o-plates) play a key role in determining the value of your car. Unfortunately, that documentation is not available for every Corvette out there and so the only option owners had in tracing the lineage of their Corvette was through previous owners. This fall, the National Corvette Restorers Society (NCRS) announced that through a partnership with the General Motors Heritage Center, it can offer members a new service that confirms the original delivery dealer as well as validate any GM documents you do have.

Hear the Rumble of the Corvette Z06x at Spring Mountain

In all the videos to come out of SEMA regarding the track ready Corvette Z06x concept, none captured the track ready car actually running. Pfadt Race Engineering’s Aaron Pfadt captured this video of the SEMA Corvette Z06x Concept when it was out at Spring Mountain for show and tell. Although the Corvette is just cruising the parking lot, you will hear the tell-tale exhaust note of a Corvette that’s ready to race.
