SEBRING, Fla. (March 19, 2016) – Corvette Racing and four Corvette Daytona Prototypes are in contention for their respective class victories today as a red flag for unsafe weather brought a halt to the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring Fueled by Fresh from Florida. The event was stopped near the three-hour mark with the cars brought to pit lane until the threat of lightning and standing water passed as the race clock continued to run.
Our friends at Mobil 1’s The Grid have put out a video previewing Corvette Racing’s efforts to defend last year’s win at the 12 Hours of Sebring.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Today is the day we drape ourselves in Green in honor of the patron saint of Ireland. It’s also the perfect excuse for use to present a special photo gallery in honor of the various shades of Green that have adorned Corvettes over the last sixty plus years spanning seven generations.
One of the really great gifts I got for Christmas as a kid was a slot car track. I remember racing friends and family for hours!
Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve had the opportunity to play with the Anki OVERDRIVE racing system and it’s amazing how technology has advanced the concept of the simple slot car race track into smartphone-powered battle racers. If you’ve ever played any racing games on consoles or your smart phone, you get that style of game play combined with the real life racing action on the track.
