Time for another SAVE THE STINGRAY’s post.
No, I don’t think this will buff out.
Police have identified the driver of a C6 Corvette involved in an hour-long high-speed chase in Los Angeles Friday night as 51-year-old Brian Newt Beaird of Oceanside, Calif.
Beaird was behind the wheel of the silver Corvette in Cudahy in east LA about 9:30 p.m. Friday when L.A. County sheriff’s deputies tried to stop him because he was driving recklessly.
Calling a decision by a San Diego County Superior Court jury “inconsistent,” a state appeals court in California has overturned a $3.5 million verdict for a couple who blamed a “defective” 2005 Corvette for causing a fire that destroyed their home in 2010 and then sued General Motors.
Sometimes we forget just how unpredictable and dangerous racing can be.
Take, for example, this Corvette C6 ZR1 that was involved in a pitlane fire during the penultimate round of the FIA World Endurance Championship over the weekend.
Here was a scary incident at fall 2013 running of the Texas Mile. Buddy Schulz is the owner/driver of this C6 Corvette and earlier in the day he had posted runs nearly 180 mph. But it was his last run of the day that makes the news.
