Chevy Team Races Against the Clock and GT Rivals on Waterfront Circuit
LONG BEACH, Calif., April 6, 2012 – Now for something completely different in the second round of the 2012 American Le Mans Series. Instead of the wide-open expanse of Sebring, Corvette Racing will compete in the concrete-lined canyons of downtown Long Beach. Instead of 12 grueling hours in central Florida, the ALMS at Long Beach will condense the competition into 120 minutes of close-quarter combat. What hasn’t changed, however, is the imperative to perform. With 20 championship points to be won on the waterfront street circuit on Saturday, April 14, the Chevrolet team will be fighting for a victory.

One of the features at last month’s Amelia Island Concours D’elegance was a class made up exclusively of Corvette styling cars. Included in the chic, invitation-only collection of cars was this Firemist Gold 1962 Corvette created under GM Shop Order #10224. It is believed that this one-off was an exercise to produce a 50th Anniversary package to celebrate Chevrolet’s golden anniversary.
An email we received tonight from a reader named Don Leblanc:
Attached is a photo of a watercolor painting I recently did. It doesn’t really have a name, other than just “C6”. I would like to share this with other Corvette fans.
