    oddly, while I have zero interest in the C8 road car, I really like this. looks great, and I'm glad they're switching up the livery too.

    not sure what track that is but it's definitely not Barber. maybe the Corvette test track in Bowling Green?

    Hmmmmm, Rogere runs all sorts anyhow.....Ford (NASCAR, V8 Supercar), Acura (WeatherTech), Chevy (IndyCar).....why not another team in WEC.....? (P/M can stay "home" in June) :)


    P.S. Why does pretty much everything lately look like the Saleen S7 to me? :(

    Definitely not shot at VIR.

    I look forward to seeing it in person, same with the road car, but I just haven't gotten excited about it. If they had called it anything other than a Corvette I would be more interested.

    The Visitors Center at KSC recently "reveled the new C8 [hardtop] convertible. Wish they would have mentioned the GT Pro racer as well because I almost attended.
