Thursday officially kicked off the 2012 NCM Bash at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY. The crowds were good and with many different activities to attend, it was tough to cover it all. But we tried and so after the jump, take a look at what went on at the Corvette Museum on Day 1 of the NCM Bash.
Earlier this year, Callaway announced the building of a special run of 25 Corvette Grand Sports for the 25th Anniversary of RPO B2K, the first turbo-charged Corvettes offered by the factory. Although today’s RPO B2K has traded in the turbos for a supercharger, the end result is equally awesome.
The National Corvette Museum’s plans for a motorsports park remain on track for a proposed 2014 opening after the Warren County Fiscal Court on March 21 unanimously approved the first reading of a rezoning ordinance.
The museum must have the 405 acres of land changed from agriculture to planned unit development zoning for the facility to be built.
The National Corvette Museum’s Corvette raffles provides the non-profit organization with the necessary funds to carry out their day to day operations. But let’s face it, not everyone can participate in some of the higher end raffles which cost anywhere from $100 to $500 per ticket. That’s why we appreciate the raffle coming up this Thursday that’s for us “regular Joes” who can afford to lay down $10 for the opportunity to help the museum and maybe win a brand new 2012 Corvette Coupe!
The National Corvette Museum has announced the names of four inductees into the 2012 Corvette Hall of Fame. GM/Chevrolet’s Gary Claudio, Founding NCM Member Patrick Dolan, Chevrolet dealer Bob McDorman and former Corvette Racing driver Andy Pilgrim. The Class of 2012 will be inducted on August 30th, 2012 at the National Corvette Museum.
Santa and Mrs. Claus took some time off their preparations for this year’s Christmas celebration by stopping by the National Corvette Museum’s annual Breakfast with Santa last Saturday in Bowling Green. As you can see, St Nick arrived in style, driving the 15th Anniversary NCM 2010 Corvette Grand Sport.
Corvette Racing’s program director Doug Fehan takes a few minutes at the 2011 Petit Le Mans to talk with Corvette owners and enthusiasts at the Corvette Corral. In the Q & A session, Doug talks about future race venues, direct injection on the C7, the return of the Jake livery and the Corvette Museum’s motorsports park.
Former Corvette Racing Driver and all-around Mr. Nice Guy Ron Fellows was inducted into the Corvette Hall of Fame for his contributions to the hobby. Ron and his family were at the National Corvette Museum’s 17th Annual Labor Day celebration last weekend for the induction ceremony and little did he know that a special Corvette was waiting for him as well.
