Today was a fun day for Corvette Racing driver Oliver Gavin. This morning he sent out a cryptic tweet suggesting something special was on the way. And when that special something finally arrived, even the rainy weather in the Englishman’s home town of Yardley Hastings couldn’t dampen his spirits when he saw his Arctic White Corvette Stingray Z51 for the first time.

[STOLEN] 1996 Corvette Grand Sport Stolen in Suffolk England


Twenty years ago, Chevrolet closed out the C4 Corvette generation with a special run of 1,000 Corvette Grand Sports – 810 Coupes and 190 Convertibles. These Admiral Blue Corvettes are very distinctive with the white full length body stripe, Black Wheels and Red Hash Marks on the fender and they are a fairly rare sighting today on the streets unless you go to one of the bigger national shows.

We imagine that spotting a 1996 Corvette Grand Sport in the U.K. is even rarer which makes this story about a stolen Corvette in England newsworthy to Corvette enthusiasts everywhere.

Recently deposed Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson may be down, but he isn’t out. While speculation continues to swirl around the future of both Top Gear and its three presenters – Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond, it appears that something may be in the works based on tweet from Clarkson.

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. The two also competed with the car at the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion in Laguna Seca, Calif., in 2012.

[VIDEO] Land Rover Defender 4x4 Gets More Power From aCorvette's LS3 V8 Engine

If you want a 4×4 with a touch of Corvette, then Wildcat Automotive (which claims “Off Road Is Our Road” as its slogan) out of the United Kingdom has just the thing for you.

It’s a Rover Defender with the same kind of LS3 small block 6.2-liter V8 that powered the C6 Chevrolet Corvette so admirably from 2005 to 2013.

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.’
