Corvette Racing Qualifies Second and Ninth for Sebring 12-Hour Race

The Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring kicks off another exciting year of sports car racing and the Corvettes look more than ready to challenge the competition in this year’s crowded GT field. However, due to changes in the broadcast schedule, not everyone is able to watch the races live. So when we do publish the results, we’ll use a generic title with the [SPOILER] tag so as not to let the cat out of the bag until you hit the jump.

Auction Results: High Price Paid for '58 Corvette Barn Car

There is a song by Pearl Jam called “Soon Forget” that opens with these lines: “Sorry is the fool who trades his soul for a corvette. Thinks he’ll get the girl he’ll only get the mechanic.” I was immediately reminded of those lyrics when I came across this 1958 Corvette barn car that was sold at a Canadian auction over the weekend.

Barrett-Jackson 2011: Corvette Sales Top $10 Million at Scottsdale Auction Photo Credit: Mat Jones

Barrett-Jackson wrapped up their week-long collector car auction last Sunday and when all was said and done, Corvette sales totaled $10.89 million. Prices seem to returning to “normal” (if you can classify a Barrett-Jackson sale as normal) after a couple of down years due to the poor economy. But most of all, we liked the selection of the 138 Corvettes available which was the highest we can remember at the Scottsdale auction in some time.

RM Auctions descended on Gainesville, Georgia last week to sell one of the largest muscle car collections in the country.

Article Contributed by Steve Burns

It was right around 2pm on Saturday, November 6th when the first Corvette rolled up onto the auction block. Within 3 or 4 minutes the Polo White 1953 roadster had a new owner. This process repeated ‘Vette after ‘Vette for roughly the next 3 hours. The auction block, covered in the traditional Mecum Auctions red color scheme, was packed full of eager bidders throughout the Corvette portion of the docket. The earlier cars could barely been seen due to the mass of people, often times 5-6 deep, surrounding them. The crowd lessened as the auction moved on, but the block was always full of people.

Red Flag Stymies Corvette Comeback in Canada

BOWMANVILLE, Ontario, Canada, Aug. 29, 2010 – After an eventful two hours and 15 minutes of racing at Mosport International Raceway, a red flag brought the Mobil 1 presents the Grand Prix of Mosport to a premature end. When the guardrail lining the high-speed Andretti Straightaway was severely damaged in an accident, officials stopped the race with 30 minutes remaining on the clock. After efforts to repair the guardrail proved futile, the race was subsequently restarted for a ceremonial final lap under caution. The No. 4 Compuware Corvette C6.R of Oliver Gavin and Jan Magnussen was fourth across the finish line in the GT class, followed by the No. 3 Corvette driven by Johnny O’Connell and Olivier Beretta.
