DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Corvette Racing found themselves in the thick of battles for the lead in GTLM halfway through the 54th Rolex 24 At Daytona. Corvette Racing’s pair of Chevrolet Corvette C7.Rs were locked in a race-long fight in search of second straight GT Le Mans (GTLM) victory at Daytona International Speedway.
Back in October we inquired, what’s the best blue to ever adorn a Corvette? 36% of you told us that the C7’s Laguna Blue is the top choice in a runaway vote. That poll met with an overwhelming response so we thought we’d ask again. With Daytona Sunrise Orange leaving the Corvette lineup for 2016 we thought we’d ask, what’s the best Corvette orange color?
The countdown to Bloomington Gold stands at just under 5 months. Once again the show will be taking up residency at the historic Indianapolis Motor Speedway. If you’re looking to have your car judged or just attend as a spectator, get ready because registration for this year’s show opens next Monday, February 1st.

Mention IMSA and Balance of Performance testing and most Corvette Racing enthusiasts roll their eyes while muttering about how arbitrary and unfair the process has been to our C7.Rs. That’s because the previous BoP calculations only took into account timing and scoring data. But for 2016, the process has changed significantly thanks to a new system of individual data loggers which are mandatory on all GTLM and GTD cars.
As a young boy, I used to dream of finding a 1963 Corvette tucked away in a field, hidden by weeds until I found it and then lovingly brought it back to life. Well, here’s my chance.
But ouch, that price tag of $30,000 for these two 1963 convertibles in less than desirable condition seems more than a little steep to us.
Corvette Racing will be back in action this weekend for the 54th Rolex 24 at Daytona so now is the time to start planning on how you can follow the C7.Rs in their quest to repeat last year’s win in the competitive GTLM class.
Here is a comprehensive list of links that will help you follow all the action as well as answer the most pressing question for sports car racing fans? How can I watch the race?
If your 2015 Corvette Z06 just isn’t powerful enough for you, the folks at Lingenfelter Performance Engineering have just the answer for you.
Their new Stage 2 engine package boosts horsepower to 750 and torque to 750 lb-ft, up from the factory levels of 650 in both categories.
