To say the atmosphere was different this year at Corvettes at Carlisle would be a huge understatement. Record crowds took advantage to get up close and personal with the Chevrolet’s new rockstar as the 2020 Corvette Stingrays attended their first true Corvette enthusiast show.
Chevrolet brought a huge contingent of Corvette engineers who were stationed at the Corvette Engineering tent. Friday morning and Saturday afternoon, Corvette Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter, Corvette Product Manager Harlan Charles and Corvette Program Engineering Manager Josh Holder held court in front of very enthusiastic crowds at the Carlisle Fairgrounds.
Due to lack of bandwidth (and sleep), we weren’t able to immediately upload the presentations while on the grounds, so we have both seminars presented here for you. Both are worth watching, however, if you can watch only one, we suggest the Saturday presentation which seemed to include a bit more information and detail about the car. But Friday’s seminar was good as well and our vantage point was a little better. At least with both videos, you get to see both sides of the new Corvette as the team addresses the crowd.
And talk about crowds! The next-generation Corvette was swarmed when it appeared at the grandstands as nearly everyone had their camera phones out and trying to get a photo. We show some of the crowd scenes at the beginning of Saturday’s presentation.
