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.

[VIDEO] 1969 Corvette Rally Car Runs Hard in Swiss Race

A 1969 Chevrolet Corvette doesn’t usually end up as a rally car in Switzerland.

But this video shows a C3 Stingray more than holding its own apparently competing in the Rallye Critérium Jurassien 2012 against a Ferrari and another small car.

[VIDEO] Corvette Z06 Takes Out BMW M3 in Robin Hood Rally Crash

The Robin Hood Rally is a reality show will soon air on the Versus network that pits amateur drivers racing flat out on closed public roads. The only problem with the premise: They’re amateurs! So it’s no surprise that in only the 2nd event out of 10 planned finds one of the drivers airlifted to the hospital with injuries sustained in a crash involving a Corvette Z06, BMW m3 and a Mini Cooper.

Is the World Ready for a General Lee Corvette ZR1?

Is the World Ready for General Lee Corvette ZR1?

This Corvette ZR1 has been wrapped in the Dukes of Hazzard’s General Lee livery in anticipation for the GoldRush Rally that is being held over June 8-13, 2010. A General Lee themed Corvette is certainly over the top, however, that orange against the black wheels, headlights and carbon fiber splitter and rockers is stunning and I’m starting to question if this shade is better than the 2011 Corvette’s Inferno Orange.
