[VIDEO] Oliver Gavin Visits the UK's Top Gear to Talk About Racing and the C8 Stingray

Corvette Racing and Chevrolet ambassador Oliver Gavin was recently on the UK’s Top Gear TV show on the BBC to give his perspective on Racing and the C8 Corvette Stingray.

While Oliver is talking about his background in racing or his experiences in driving the mid-engine Corvette Stingray, we see Top Gear’s Freddie Flintoff driving a Right-Hand-Drive version on the show’s test track and having a bunch of while in the process.

That fun is one of the Corvette’s known side effects as you’ll watch Freddie putting the car through its paces.

Speed, endurance and getting the best out of the machinery. Corvette Racing’s Oliver Gavin talks about his 51 wins, the Corvette’s heritage and what it was like watching Freddie out on the track.

Top Gear had also put out this quick 2-minute video on Freddie’s drive with RHD Corvette Stingray, so we are including that here as well:

  1. Brits are kinda morons, especially Clarkson. Corvette’s can’t turn???? Horse shit there buddy, what have you clowns built that keeps pace with any of them?? NOTHING!! C5R, C6R, C7R all kicked ass and the C8R is pretty much undefeated in it’s first two seasons. Britain has nothing to compete and with the new C8 ZO6 coming out they may as well stay home.

  2. Wow, people forget Fast how the C6 ZR1 obtained the production car lap time records in 2008 and 2011 in green hell. I cast my vote to induct Mr. Jim Mero in the Corvette Hall of fame…
