Mecum to Auction John Greenwood's Spirit of Sebring '75 Corvette Racecar


John Greenwood’s recent passing should make this 1974 Greenwood Corvette chassis number 002 even more desirable at the upcoming August Mecum auction.

Number 002, also known as the “Spirit of Sebring ’75,” has a tremendous amount of history behind it, including the fact that it was John Greenwood’s personal favorite.

Greenwood made only six of his wide-body race machines, and this example is the only one that was raced as a Greenwood “team” entry, with the others being built for customers.

This has been a magical year for Corvette Racing and the C7.R.

First they opened the season with a win at the Rolex 24 at Daytona and then followed that up with a win at the Twelve Hours of Sebring. Then it’s off to France for Corvette Racing’s most important race of the year. And when the odds looked stacked against them after losing the No.63 Corvette in a qualifying accident, the No.64 Corvette with drivers Gavin, Milner and Taylor stepped up and ran about the cleanest 24 hour race ever to win the GTE-Pro class at the 24 Hours at Le Mans.

[VIDEO] Corvette Product Manager Harlan Charles Shares Facts about the 2015 Corvette at Sebring

Last Friday at Sebring’s Corvette Corral, Corvette Product Manager Harlan Charles and Engineer Eric Roselli addressed the Corvette owners in the crowd and answered questions about the 2015 Corvette Stingray and Z06. Harlan shared some facts and production figures about the car and thanks to our friend Jake Drennon of the C5/C6 Corvette Registry, we can share his video of the presentation.

One of the great things you can do as a Corvette owner is to support the factory Corvette C7.Rs by going to one of the TUDOR United Sports Car races held around the Country. And Chevrolet makes it real easy to go by sponsoring a Corvette Corral at select races where owners can safely park their cars, listen to seminars from Doug Fehan, Harlan Charles and Ron Fellows as well as enjoy the camaraderie that we share with other Corvette owners.

Arriving this weekend at the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring, we were amazed to see a record number of attendees who parked their cars in the Corvette Corral. From C1s to C7 Z06s, there was a little something for everyone parked under the bright Florida sun.

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.

Mobil 1 Celebrates 20 Years as Title Sponsor of the Twelve Hours of Sebring

Endurance is definitely the name of the game when it comes to the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring – and not just on the track.

At Saturday’s 63rd annual event, for example, the title sponsor – ExxonMobil – will be celebrating some endurance of its own, observing a remarkable 20 years as title sponsor, one of the longest sponsor relationships in motorsports.

Mobil 1, of course, plays a big role for Corvettes in general and Corvette Racing in particular. All Corvettes have come from the factory filled with Mobil 1 oil for years, and that loyalty carries over to the track, too.
