On Saturday morning we made our annual pilgrimage to the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring where we spent the day cheering on our Corvette Racing team while baking under the Florida sun. Right after noon, we started our trek of walking the circuit and finding many great opportunities to shoot the factory yellow Corvette racers on the historic track. Along with our sunburn, we brought home a bevy of Corvette racing pics share!

The Corvette world is mourning the passing of another racing legend, Dr. Dick Thompson.

It was just a year ago that Callaway received authorization from GM to build and race a GT3-spec C7 Corvette in Europe but changing regulations forced the project to be put on hold.
