Back on Labor Day weekend earlier this year the National Corvette Museum officially opened their new Motorsports Park. The freshly minted facility recently held its first official High Performance Driving Event (HDPE) on September 27th and 28th. In the video after the break we get a quick look at all of various festivities that took place a couple weeks ago.
When fully completed, the park will feature a twisty road course with multiple challenging configurations, a 22 acre paved area for autocross, skid pad and paddock space, a multi-level control tower, a technical inspection area, and a commercial business park. Other features will include meeting rooms, administrative offices, and classrooms. More importantly, there will be a fueling station to feed your beast in between runs.
Throughout the 2 minute film there’s fantastic footage of cars from all makes bombing around the new track in Bowling Green right across I-65 from the National Corvette Museum.
The video opens with Motorsports Park General Manager Mitch Wright giving a brief overview of the weekend’s activities which also included a Cars and Coffee event. He goes on to mention that they had about 200 cars present for the first NCM HDPE. That’s a great turnout for a first time event.
Next, Corvette Racing veteran and Hall of Famer Andy Pilgrim discusses the track and being able to drive owners’ cars around the track to help show the fastest way to navigate the circuit. How would you like to have a Corvette Racing driver flog your car around a track?
Finally an owner whose been challenging the track chimes in to give a firsthand account of the new track and Motorsports Park.
