[STOLEN] 1996 Corvette Grand Sport Stolen in Suffolk England

Twenty years ago, Chevrolet closed out the C4 Corvette generation with a special run of 1,000 Corvette Grand Sports – 810 Coupes and 190 Convertibles. These Admiral Blue Corvettes are very distinctive with the white full length body stripe, Black Wheels and Red Hash Marks on the fender and they are a fairly rare sighting today on the streets unless you go to one of the bigger national shows.

We imagine that spotting a 1996 Corvette Grand Sport in the U.K. is even rarer which makes this story about a stolen Corvette in England newsworthy to Corvette enthusiasts everywhere.

A couple of racing legends will be reunited at the Goodwood Revival this fall.

Australian motorsports legend John Bowe will again be driving a 1965 Corvette Sting Ray that is an original 1960s SCCA competitor.

Bowe has been invited to race at Goodwood , set for Sept. 11-13, with another Australian-based businessman recently turned race car driver, Joe Calleja, in the Corvette belonging to Calleja. The two also competed with the car at the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion in Laguna Seca, Calif., in 2012.

Every year Autocar Magazine gathers an eclectic collection of vehicles that are available in Britain and puts them through three days of testing on the road and on the track to determine Britain’s Best Driver’s Car. This year’s contest was based at the racetrack at Castle Combe, Chippenham, which, in addition to the track, was in easy reach of several ‘decent’ roads. In their words, ‘And by decent, we of course mean poorly surfaced and badly cambered as only the finest British roads can be.’
