[VIDEO] RallyCross in a C5 Corvette Z06


Remember that C5 Corvette Z06 that did a burnout so awesome that the brakes caught on fire? We figured Matt Einarsson was the owner of the car after seeing a couple more videos featuring the same C5 Z06s in his youtube timeline.

Matt reached out to us on our facebook page and gave us a heads up on another video featuring his Corvette Z06 in an SCCA sanctioned RallyCross – which is pretty much an autocross held on dirt. Matt shows no fear in driving his Z06 off-road and the car is more than capable in handling the terrain.

1964 Corvette Rally Car to be Auctioned at Bonham's Goodwood Sale


A 1964 Corvette rally car is expected to fetch roughly $60,000 when it’s auctioned off by Bonhams at the upcoming Goodwood Festival of Speed.

The red car, freshly restored, has an impressive racing history, having been rallied by Duncan Robb-Cummings in the Monte Carlo Challenge from 1998 to 2001 and in the 1999 Rallye Des Lavandes and the 2000 and 2001 Rallye de Paris. Back then, the car was highlighted in Classic & Sports Car magazine and Classic Car Weekly. The new owner will get an impressive history folder containing photographs, MoTs, ferry passes, entries and correspondence concerning all the events it participated in.

Check out the view from a C6 Corvette as it runs behind the Corvette Pace Car during the PIT Rally on Colorado’s Central City Parkway. The course is 7 miles, 4 lanes wide, 23 turns and a 2,500 ft hill climb through the Rocky Mountains.

Chasing a GO4IT Racing Corvette (pace car) in my street C6 Corvette on Central City Parkway in Colorado during PIT Rally 2014. Hit a top speed of 140 MPH, averaging 104 MPH over 6.9 miles and 1500 ft of overall elevation climb. I was admittedly a little hesitant around some of those blind turns!

Front video and data recorded by TrackAddict HD on an iPhone 5, with optional OBD-II interface add-on. Rear video from a ReplayXD 720. Video+Data overlays and Picture-in-Picture produced with RaceRender 3: http://RaceRender.com

[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 annual Gumball 3000 rally kicked off down in Miami last week. The rally features exotic cars traveling to different cities and countries with parties and highway shenanigans along the way. After starting in Miami on Friday, the Gumball teams drove to New York City where they and their cars will fly to the U.K. After stops in France and Spain, the rally culminates on the island of Ibiza.

One of the cars in the rally is this blue chrome wrapped 2014 Corvette Stingray.

Wait, SCCA racing on a frozen lake? Count us in! We don’t see this Stingray take on the whole course but the video shows the painfully slow launch as the Corvette begins its run.

Filmed at the Saginaw Valley SCCA Ross Lake ice race in Beaverton MI on Jan 26th 2014. Here’s a sound clip of a stock 2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7 Stingray Z51 with dual mode performance exhaust. The new LT1 engine sounds great. Yes, it actually did race the ice race!

The Corvette is owned by Casey Swanseger and he sent us a link to his GoPro video showing the run on the ice course. You can watch it here.

[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.”

We now know why RPO N11 is called “Off Road Exhaust”! If you’re gonna rally a replica Corvette Grand Sport in East Africa, you got to put in some practice laps. Watch this Corvette run laps and drift on dirt roads as the team shakesdown the car in preparation for the rally on the Dark Continent in November.

You can watch a second shakedown session where the Grand Sport runs on the Eurocircuit track in Valkenswaard, The Netherlands.
