[GALLERY] Vintage Corvette Racers at Indianapolis (44 Corvette photos)


While much of the Corvette racing world was focused on the factory efforts at the 24 Hours of Le Mans last weekend, another historic track here in the United States was also in session. The Sportscar Vintage Racing Association (SVRA) was in Indianapolis for the 2015 Brickyard Vintage Racing Invitational and so were the vintage Corvette racers.

Our friend Glenn Brown was there to help crew for Jim Glass and his 1965 Corvette and he captured many of the classic Corvettes doing their thing on the track.

[VIDEO] Over 40 Corvette Race Cars Rumble at the Corvette World Tribute

On Sunday, over 40 current and former Corvette race cars gathered at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin for the Corvette World Tribute, a celebration of racing Corvettes as part of the Chevrolet’s 100 year anniversary. As the cars lined up to take a parade lap around the famous 4.08 mile circuit, youtube member HeyMark5 captured nearly three minutes of pure Corvette thunder as each of the corvettes sauntered past his camera and made their way onto the track.

This video is mostly off-topic when it comes to Corvettes (although a Corvette is seen at the beginning). Watching these guys race and you have to wonder if they weren’t all just a little crazy. Other than wearing helmets, safety equipment was pretty much non-existent. No roll bars, no seat belts, no fire-suppression systems. Check it out but be warned, some of these crashes couldn’t have ended well.
