Australian 2009 Corvette ZR1 Gets Right Hand Drive

This 2009 Corvette ZR1 was imported into Australia and received a right hand drive conversion from the Corvette Clinic in Bundoora, Victoria. This is just the first of America’s King of the Hill to receive the RHD treatment which allows the cars to be fully registerable in all Australian states. According to the Corvette Clinic, two more Corvette ZR1s, a Victory Red and a Cyber Gray model, will soon get the conversion as well.

Converting a Corvette to right hand drive isn’t an easy task. The Corvette Clinic created a new dash and had to remanufacture some of the steering components to make it work. What I like about their ZR1 conversion is that they were also able to move the 6-Speed transmission shifter knob to the right side of the center console as well.

Corvettes Shine at Annual Carlisle Event

by Keith Cornett on August 31, 2009

Corvettes at Carlisle

The annual Corvettes at Carlisle show was held over the weekend in rainy Pennsylvania. Although the weather was rather poor at times it didn’t seem to dampen the spirits of the Corvette enthusiasts who attended. The manufacturers and vendors were out as well with the Corvette Team holding court and showing off the new 2010 Grand Sport. Featured guest and new Corvette ZR1 owner Mario Andretti addressed the crowd. The only downside of the 3-day event was the annual Corvette auction which appears to have been cancelled after two years of declining sales and interest.

We went through the Corvette forums and found a few threads chock full of Carlisle pics. You can view all the photos by hopping the link over the source:

Johnny O’Connell and Jan Magnussen made history today with Corvette Racing’s first win in the GT2 class at the Grand Prix of Mosport. Magnussen had an epic battle in the final minutes with the #62 Risi Ferrari driven by Pierre Kaffer. Kaffer pushed Magnussen hard but the Dane was able to stay in front and crossed the finish line 0.331 seconds ahead the red Ferrari.
