[VIDEO] 81 Year Old Road Rally Driver Tops 166 MPH in her C5 Corvette

Once a year in Idaho, the Sun Valley Road Rally transforms Highway 75 north of Ketchum into a “No Speed Limit” zone where drivers can run as fast as they want past throngs of spectators cheering them on. The event, now in its 5th year, raises money for the Blaine County Community Drug Coalition.

One of the videos we caught of the event featured a C5 Corvette that hit a top speed of 166 mph on the two lane road.

But that’s not all. Driving the yellow Corvette, according to the PA announcer, was an 81 year old grandmother.

The guys at TR3 Performance brought out their new C7 Stingray Corvette to play against a lightly modded (intake and exhaust) C6 Z51 Corvette. The new C7 Corvette is amazing inside and out! We will likely see a lot more of this beast in the coming weeks so stay tuned!

[VIDEO] C2 Corvette Grand Sport Replica Preps for East African Rally

Here’s something you don’t see every day – a Corvette Grand Sport (1960s variety) – sloshing its way along muddy roads in the wilds of Africa.

Cars like this are usually seen on a race track competing in motorsport, but this one has been modified by Tachyon Motorsport to be driven by Michiel Campagne and Mike van Thiel on Nov. 29 in Kenya during the East-African Safari Rally, which bills itself as “The World’s Greatest Rally.”

[VIDEO] Autocrossing the 2014 Corvette Stingray

Last week at the C7 Corvette Stingray Media Drive event in Monterey, Chevy had an autocross course set up on a concrete tarmac just behind the airplane hanger where the entire event was staged. Three Corvettes, all 7-speed Z51 cars, were on the track. I chose the Torch Red Stingray (because everyone knows that red Corvettes are the fastest).

Mark Carlyles Twin-Turbo C6 Corvette Sets IRS and LSX Records at the World Cup Finals

Mark Carlyle and his twin-turbo, atomic orange C6 Corvette just keep getting better and better.

Unfortunately, he doesn’t have a win to show for his outstanding performances.

In late October, Carlyle dropped below the 7 second mark with a record 6.99 time (at a record-setting 209 mph) in the semifinals of the LSX Drag Radial Class. But Carlyle ended up losing in the finals to Mark Brown.
