Milford Proving Grounds
Great news for Indy 500 Corvette pace car fans. Autoweek is claiming that the 2014 Corvette Stingray will be the pace car for the Greatest Spectacle in Racing and they say they have the spy photos to prove it. The photos show a specially-equipped Laguna Blue 2014 Corvette Stingray with safety lights testing at the Milford Proving Grounds.
If you’re looking for something to do July 18th – 22nd then consider the NCM’s Performance Tour III. For a generous donation you and 39 other Corvettes can tour the Bowling Green Assembly Plant, NCM, Warren Tech Center, and the Milford Proving Grounds. Think of this as a Corvettes-only version of the Hot Rod Power Tour.
Last week, attendees to the NCRS National Convention had the opportunity to visit GM’s Milford Proving Grounds. One of the highlights of the visit was an opportunity for a hotlap in a Corvette ZR1 with Jim Mero, the GM test driver who piloted the Yellow Corvette ZR1 around the Nurburgring in 7:19.63. Twelve raffle winners were selected for the hotlap opportunity and lucky for us, one of them uploaded the video of their hotlap to YouTube.
