When Corvette Racing began their factory-backed effort in 1999, few if any truly expected the kind of dominating success that the racing team would come to embody. Looking back on 15 years of racing, the team has raced three different of generations of Corvettes from the C5-R to the C7.R. Along the way they earned the most all-time victories and 1-2 finishes in American Le Mans Series history including an ALMS-best 10 team championships, 10 manufacturer championships and seven class wins at the 24 hours of Le Mans.

But how well do you know Corvette Racing? This week IMSA put out these Five Things You Didn’t Know About Corvette Racing and there were a few items on the list that even the most diehard fan might not be aware of.

[VIDEO] Another 2015 Corvette Z06 Hits the Dyno and Shows 572 RWHP

Yesterday when we posted the dyno graph from Vengeance Racing which showed the new C7 Corvette Z06 generating 585 rear wheel horsepower and 617 lb-ft of torque, we speculated that more dyno tests would be needed to see if Chevrolet was sandbagging conservatively estimating the power numbers for the new supercharged super car.

We now have a new video from the guys at High Tech Corvette which features a black 2015 Corvette Z06 on a Mustang 1100 dynometer and those results were equally impressive.

Check out the New 'Click-n-Shop' Corvette Catalogs from Mid America Motorworks

Earlier today I was made aware of a pretty cool feature on the Mid America Motorworks’ website. Mike Yager and his staff already have one of the most comprehensive catalogs for Corvette parts and accessories on the web, but now they’ve added speed and convenience of shopping with their “Click-n-Shop” catalogs.

With the holidays upon us, there’s nothing like more speed that makes a Corvette enthusiast happy and that includes the online shopping experience! In fact, you can browse through a whole catalog of Corvette products faster than a new Corvette Z06 taking a lap at Road Atlanta.

C6 Corvette Driver Hits a Pedestrian in Jacksonville

A man staggering across both lanes of a highway in Jacksonville, Fla., suffered serious injuries after being struck by a silver C6 Corvette on Saturday night, according to a spokesman with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.

Lt. Larry Kitchen said the man was taken to UF Health Jacksonville, where his injuries were said to be life-threatening.

[PICS] Corvette Seller Mike Furman Takes Delivery of his Personal 2015 Corvette Z06

It’s been a busy week for our friend Mike Furman at Criswell Chevrolet with all the new Corvette deliveries he’s been doing recently. He’ll tell you that he’s just doing his job – being one of the top Corvette sellers in the nation means spending a lot of time with customers on the phone and at the dealership – but there is another reason for that smile on his face. One of the first 2015 Corvette Z06s that was delivered to his dealership is his!

[GALLERY] Midyear Monday (38 Corvette photos)

One of our favorite blog posts to assemble is the weekly gallery of C2 Corvettes we like to call Midyear Monday. This week, we’ve got what I think are some outstanding pictures of the 1963-1967 Corvette Sting Ray. Here’s a random photo gallery of 38 Midyear Corvettes to kick off the week.

What’s your favorite Corvette in this week’s Midyear Monday gallery? Let us know and be sure to share this page on Twitter and Facebook.

2015 Corvette Z06 on the Dyno Shows 585 RWHP

Last week an Arctic White Corvette Z06 was picked up by the guys from Vengeance Racing who proceeded to do a massive burnout in the dealer’s lot before taking their new super car back to their shop in Cumming, GA.

Once the Z06 was safely ensconced in the tuner’s garage, it was immediately placed on the dynojet to see what its baseline horsepower and torque numbers were.

Here’s the first video we’ve seen that has the all new 2015 Corvette Z06 going head to head in various highway pulls against its primary domestic competitor, a 2014 Viper TA. Was this the expected result?

America’s two best sportscars battle it out to see who is the king of the road. Both vehicles are 100% stock. Outdoor temperature was 57F. A total of 7 clean runs were made, from varying mph starts and finishes.
