  • At VIR today

    That's Virginia International Raceway, if you didn't know. It's a track where manufacturers do a lot of resting, and where the ZR-1 broke the track record without even trying.

    Was talking to an employee of VIR, whom I won't name but whom would be in the know of what the track is being scheduled for, and who mentioned in passing that Chevy has been testing the ME Corvette here when the track is closed to the public. Another employee implied that an ME might actually be onsite, locked in a trailer. I definitely believe the first person, not so much the second.

    Bob, that is such good information. Thank you for posting it. It fits with the C7 testing process for initial testing of the C7, for it was at VIR was about the time time in advance to its reveal as this summer/early summer would be for the ME. Of course, they will be back there several more times with the Me as they work there was through the next generation of Michelin’s Corvette-Me-specific tires, the next round of shock and other suspensions fine-tuning, etc.

    .f only your friend would let you know in advance, get your disguised as a “track worker” while that is happening. We could get you some 007 special gear to take video pictures disguised as your gravel rake while you are smoothing out the runoff areas.

      Maybe you could alternatively be disguised as the one of the Michelin tire changers.
      Looking forward to our ME arriving.

        Or hide out in a stack of tires in the tire wall.

        Oh, and I suspect GM brings it own "track workers."

          After attending the new owners school in Pahrump, I could see were Chevrolet could be testing the ME in a hot environment at this facility.
          Plenty of places to hide them when not on the track.
