A couple of racing legends will be reunited at the Goodwood Revival this fall.

Australian motorsports legend John Bowe will again be driving a 1965 Corvette Sting Ray that is an original 1960s SCCA competitor.

Bowe has been invited to race at Goodwood , set for Sept. 11-13, with another Australian-based businessman recently turned race car driver, Joe Calleja, in the Corvette belonging to Calleja. The two also competed with the car at the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion in Laguna Seca, Calif., in 2012.

[VIDEO] Original 1963 Corvette Grand Sport Driven at the Simeone Museum

How many times have you seen a photo of one of the five 1963 Corvette Grand Sports?

But how many times have you actually heard the sound of that awesome 427 engine roaring through the gears on a road and producing between 500 and 600 horsepower?

Too many times it seems that a car’s life is basically over once it reaches a museum, where it just sits there and is admired by enthusiasts, but that’s not the case at the Simeone Museum in Philadelphia.

[PICS] Shock and Awe: Arctic White Corvette Z06 on Polished Aluminum ADV.1 Wheels

Back in February we shared photos of a Torch Red Corvette Z06 with ADV10 Track Spec Matte Black Wheels. The end result in our opinion was that just by changing the wheels, a great looking 650 hp super car looks even better with the slightly different stance generated from the larger concave black wheels.

But the black wheel look isn’t for everyone and to show how much wheels can change the look of a car, check out these pics of a new Arctic White Corvette Z06 wearing ADV 7.0 Track Spec SL wheels in polished aluminum.
