Corvette’s Ride and Handling Engineer Jim Mero is a rock star in Corvette circles but outside our hobby, he is just one of the countless engineers that help make the Corvette the best it can be.
Michelin USA and Amazon’s The Grand Tour have put out a video this afternoon featuring Mero behind the wheel of a Corvette Grand Sport at the NCM Motorsports Park and he talks about how he has the best job in the world.
With a bootlegger for a grandfather, Mero’s need for speed must run in the family. Getting an early start with kart racing, Mero steadily moved up the ranks to Indy Car racing and eventually raced at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Now as the official test driver for Corvette, he says his “office” is the best in the world!
