Recently deposed Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson may be down, but he isn’t out.

A couple of racing legends will be reunited at the Goodwood Revival this fall.

Australian motorsports legend John Bowe will again be driving a 1965 Corvette Sting Ray that is an original 1960s SCCA competitor.

Bowe has been invited to race at Goodwood , set for Sept. 11-13, with another Australian-based businessman recently turned race car driver, Joe Calleja, in the Corvette belonging to Calleja.

Top Gear's Jeremy Clarkson Picks the Corvette Stingray as his Car of the Year

Jeremy Clarkson, one of the co-hosts of the BBC’s Top Gear auto show, has turned in his choice for the 2014 Car of the Year and it’s none other than the 2014 Corvette Stingray. We’ve come along way from the days when America’s Sports Car was nothing but a punching bag (or a literal target) for the British auto critic. The choice for the 2014 Car of the Year was announced in the magazine version of Top Gear in their annual awards issue which is out now.

[VIDEO] The C7 Corvette Stingray Competes Against Europe's Best

Every year Autocar Magazine gathers an eclectic collection of vehicles that are available in Britain and puts them through three days of testing on the road and on the track to determine Britain’s Best Driver’s Car. This year’s contest was based at the racetrack at Castle Combe, Chippenham, which, in addition to the track, was in easy reach of several ‘decent’ roads. In their words, ‘And by decent, we of course mean poorly surfaced and badly cambered as only the finest British roads can be.’

Sir Alex Ferguson: No Corvette ZR1's for Manchester United's Young Players

Sometimes it’s tough being young.

For example, just ask the players on the prestigious Manchester United soccer squad in Great Britain who are younger than 23. They won’t be able to take full advantage of a very generous offer by the team’s newest sponsor, Chevrolet, to give them the Chevy of their choice, even a shiny new Corvette.

Two English Gents Show How to Cook with a Corvette V8 Engine

We’ve all heard of having fun with our Corvette, but a recent video from recombu.com’s Joyride with Rory Reid features the host and his pal, English actor/comedian Robert Llewellyn, definitely taking that idea and spinning it off in a different direction.

The two gents used a Corvette C6 convertible for what some might term a “car-b-que” in the English countryside and captured the entire unique experience on video.
