Go Racing in the Michelin Corvette Challenge at Spring Mountain

Calling all racers (with the means to buy an enhanced Corvette Stingray Z51 Coupe)!

Like the days of old where Corvettes were so good at racing that they had their own Challenge series, Spring Mountain will be hosting a spec-Corvette racing series kicking off in early 2016.

The Michelin Corvette Challenge will feature 15 races over eight weekends in 2016 where participants will race identical track-ready Corvette Stingray Z51 Coupes on Spring Mountain’s 6.1 mile track.

Chevrolet showed off the Corvette Stingray Track Day Concept which features the Z06-based performance parts that will be used in the spec-racing series.

[GALLERY] Corvette Racing at the 12 Hours of Sebring (30 Corvette photos)

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!

So here’s a photo gallery of 30 images featuring the Corvette C7.Rs racing at the 12 Hours of Sebring. Do you have a favorite? Please share this page on Twitter and Facebook.

The first Corvette to compete in a race at the National Corvette Museum’s Motorsports Park made a very good showing over the weekend.

Team Braunschweig, out of Minnesota, decided to make the trip to compete in the World Racing League’s season opener in Bowling Green on Saturday, making their No. 117 C5 the only Corvette to compete against 21 other teams in the GP1 class.

The driver of this ’69 Corvette Stingray is having some serious fun trying to get that American V8 power some traction during an autocross event held on an ice track.

Here’s one 2013 ZR1 that’s definitely a cut above the already awesome Corvette powerhouse.

LG Motorsports says that a fellow named Karl brought his stock ZR1 to them with the directive to build him a complete car that will spend most of its time on the track but still see some street time.

Now that the Corvette Museum’s Motorsports Park is open, we are starting to get some feedback from some of the professional drivers who have already visited the new track. Johnny O’Connell, one of the most successful racecar drivers in the history of the sport was recently at the track and we’re interested to hear what he had to say.
