When Chevrolet first introduced the 2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition at the Corvette Museum’s Bash in April, they naturally showed the Coupe version in new Corvette Racing Yellow. But if you read the release notes (or watched our video), you would know that the limited-edition salute to Corvette Racing’s C7.R was also available in Convertible form, and yes Batman, it comes in Black.

At the 2015 Bloomington Gold Corvette show at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Chevrolet showed off their first Black Convertible Z06 C7.R Edition. Thanks to these photos from Travis Raczynski and our friend Corvette Conti who brought these to our attention, we’re able to share the dark side of the new limited edition Corvette.

The notice of violation requiring the National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park to cease all construction and events came as a surprise to NCM Executive Director Wendell Strode, who thought all the parties involved had reached an amiable understanding during a public meeting Monday.

[ACCIDENT] C6 Corvette Gets Under a Minivan in British Columbia

Since today is ‘Ron Fellows Day’ (but you can still call it Canada Day if you like), we thought a story about a Corvette driver in the Great White North would be an interesting read. Unfortunately, the topic is not a very happy one as it’s an accident report from Western Canada showing a Yellow C6 Corvette Coupe under the rear wheels of a minivan.

The National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park will live up to the agreements it has signed to host special events over the next few weeks, despite receiving a notice of violation from the City-County Planning Commission of Warren County after a public meeting on Monday.

“We intend to move forward with the agreement reached at the meeting,” the NCM said in a prepared statement released Tuesday. “Therefore the NCM Motorsports Park will fulfill all contracts with our renters as well as continue construction on our planned facilities at the NCM Motorsports Park. We plan to move forward with business as usual, we will not cancel any scheduled events and will continue to book events for future years.”

[PICS] The 2015 Bloomington Gold Corvette Show

Last weekend Bloomington Gold completed its rookie orientation at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. A couple of soggy days couldn’t dampen spirits at the show’s 2nd new location in the last 3 years.

The combination of new driving events and the iconic location made this one of the best Bloomington Gold events in recent memory.

After last month’s announcement that the Bowling Green Assembly Plant Manager Jeff Lamarche was being promoted to the Flint Assembly Plant, we’ve been wondering who would be appointed as the Jeff’s replacement.
