Construction at the National Corvette Museum’s Motorsports Park is well underway and getting closer everyday to its grand opening at the end of August. We recently came across some new aerial photos of the racetrack on their facebook page which gives us the best views yet on how the track will look when completed.
The NCM Bash celebrating the new Corvette models took on an international flavor Friday with the announcement that Michelin will be first official sponsor of the NCM Motorsports Park. The three-year agreement names Michelin as the official tire of the NCM Motorsports Park and provides the company with product privileges and displays at both the Museum and the Park.
Michelin will also serve as the presenting sponsor for three events to be held at the NCM and the Motorsports Park during the term of the contract.
While the focus at the National Corvette Museum has centered around the sinkhole and recovering the fallen eight Corvettes, something remarkable is happening right across the street.
Construction crews at the NCM Motorsports Park began laying down asphalt on the paddock which will be used for a skidpad and autocross events.
More approval by a governmental agency came speeding down the straightaway for the National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park last week.
After hearing Wendell Strode, executive director of the museum, explain that the museum has “gone above and beyond” with its plans, the City-County Planning Commission gave its OK to a detailed development plan Thursday for the motorsports park.
We’ve heard all the good news about the 2014 Corvette Stingray over the past few months, with numerous honors being awarded to the seventh generation of Chevrolet’s sports car.
The good news shows no sign of stopping, either.
The National Corvette Museum is racing toward its 20th anniversary in August, literally. That’s when it will open a widely anticipated Motorsports Park featuring a 3.1-mile road course on 184 acres across the interstate from the museum.
The opening of the new National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park is less than a year away.
To help with the construction of the park and develop overall plans for operations, the Museum has appointed a veteran in the industry, Mitch Wright, as general manager.
As you can imagine, life is pretty hectic at the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green right now.
Plant manager Dave Tatman took time out to talk to a crowd of 300 people Tuesday at the Barren River Area Development District’s annual luncheon at the National Corvette Museum just across from the assembly plant.
The dream of a National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park is roaring closer and closer to reality with each passing day.
Corvette enthusiasts and community and state leaders gathered Friday, June 28th in Bowling Green, Kentucky for a groundbreaking ceremony for the $20 million, 184-acre, dual-track park located just across from the museum off I-65.
