I have to say, those mannequins can really hold a pose!
Team relying on consistency in driver lineup for IMSA, Le Mans programs
DETROIT (Dec. 7, 2016) – After sweeping all six GT Le Mans titles in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship in 2016 and winning five times, Corvette Racing confirmed today that its full-season driver roster will remain unchanged for the upcoming 2017 racing season.
Folks in Stafford, N.Y., can expect a tax increase thanks to a veto of a new law by the governor that would have allowed the fire department there to start up its annual raffle of a classic Corvette again.
We told you a few months ago that the state had shut down the raffle because someone complained that the Stafford Fire Department was accepting credit and debit cards for online purchases of tickets. Never mind that the department had been raffling off used cars since World War II to pay for department improvements like trucks, construction of the fire house, purchase of land for soccer fields, and save the town’s post office.
We love the look of this black C7 coupe that carries the “dark” theme all the way over to the windows and taillights.
But we understand why the legal community might not be as loving.
One of our favorite features each year at the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals (MCACN) are the premier unveilings where owners and restorers get show off their freshly restored rides to the public for the very first time since completion. The 2016 show saw over a dozen reveals including a stunning Silver Pearl on black 1967 427/435 Corvette coupe.
Remember the C7 Corvette that was impounded last month by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police after the driver was caught speeding more than 25 mph over the limit?
Now we hear that another Corvette has been impounded in Canada after the driver was nabbed on radar doing more than 70 km/h (43 mph) over the speed limit back in mid-November.
There’s been a lot of talk recently about just how good the 2017 Camaro ZL1 was going to be. After watching this video from Hennessey Performance featuring a roll race between the new Camaro and Chevrolet’s big nasty, the 2017 Corvette Z06, well, it looks to us like the hype is well deserved.
