[ACCIDENT] C7 Corvette Z06 Crashes at the Race Track

There is no doubt that the 2015 Corvette Z06 is the most capable performance Corvette that Chevrolet has ever made. But to really experience the full bandwidth of performance available, owners are encouraged to take their car to the track. And there lies the conundrum… While the Corvette Z06 may be ready for the track, sometimes the driver isn’t which is why we have the photos of a Corvette Z06 that went off the track and into the weeds at a recent SCCA event.

[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.

Guldstrand-Prepped 1966 Corvette SCCA Racer Sells Quickly

Some lucky enthusiast is the new owner of a 1966 Corvette SCCA race car prepared for competition by the legendary Dick Guldstrand.

The car had been up for sale on eBay, but a check of the listing on June 4th showed that it had been removed because it was no longer available. Prior to the auction ending we saw the bidding was closing in on $40,000. A quick phone call confirmed the sale, but the spokesman declined to reveal the final selling price.

Bob Bondurant Inducted into SCCA Racing Hall of Fame

Bob Bondurant will turn 81 next month, but the legendary racer and driving educator shows no signs of slowing down any time soon.

Take, for example, his induction into the Sports Car Club of America Hall of Fame during a ceremony in Charlotte, N.C., on Saturday.

Bondurant, who has been well known in Corvette circles for decades, has run the Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving, now in Arizona, for the past 46 years.

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.
