| Hundreds of dedicated Corvette racers and enthusiasts will celebrate the marque's 60th year in production at Road America on Sunday, August 19. The occasion is the Corvette World Tribute, a gathering of vintage and contemporary examples of America's favorite sports car at America's greatest road course.
Like brats and cheese, Corvettes are part of Road America's essential character. In the early days, the track was a favorite destination for Chevrolet executives to stage sneak previews of upcoming models and to develop high-performance packages for production models. The high-speed 4-mile track in Wisconsin's rolling Kettle Moraine has long been a battleground for generations of Corvette road racers, from the glory days of the original solid-axle Corvettes, Sting Rays, and Grand Sports to today's championship-winning Corvette C6.Rs campaigned by Corvette Racing in the American Le Mans Series.
The Corvette World Tribute offers a full menu of activities for participants, enthusiasts, and spectators to experience the Corvette lifestyle. Autocross and slalom courses, a concours featuring People's Choice awards, a road rally, Karting Challenge and track sessions for touring and race-prepared Corvettes will provide nonstop action. Road America is working with the National Council of Corvette Clubs (NCCC) and the Kettle Moraine Corvette Club to coordinate the event and will manage car owner/driver event registration. Additional information plus sponsor promotions are available at www.roadamerica.com
'The relationship between Chevrolet and Road America runs deep,' said Russ Clark, Chevrolet Product Marketing Director, Midsize/Performance Cars and GM Racing. 'It's fitting that two icons of American racing, Chevrolet and Road America, have joined forces. Road America is known as 'America's National Park of Speed,' and Corvette is America's iconic sports car. We're very proud to celebrate our mutual heritage here in the heartland of America.'
