  • POLL: Where Will 7.18.19 Reveal Be

    So far we have heard many guesses as to where the ME’s reveal will be. I have been talking to several friends as to where I think it could be, and I am sure I am wrong on many of them I have floated.

    Curious, what are you thinking the location would be, and if none of the following work for you, please select # 9 and post below.

    Hey, I was able to cast the 1st vote.

    I think it will be at the NCM, with ample track time at the Motorsports Park.

    I also expect the spire display-area of the museum to have all prior Corvette mid-engine prototypes available for visitors to see.

      I thought maybe some major golf tournament, but I don't think there is a major one that weekend.

        I think they'll wait for the Z06 release for that... to demonstrate the patented DGCB™ (Dual Golf Club Bag) system.

                What’s the price of admission, a new C8?

                    I really think it will be Lime Rock, and the surprise will be they show the C8.R at the same time.

                      We learned from Skank that more mid engines are sold in Southern California than anywhere else. Might it be there?

                          I think the Corporate Office at the Renn Center in Detroit will host the initial reveal. It will be by invitation only and announced with little fanfare and on short notice. As much anticipated as this car is to us, I think GM would be smart in doing it with a low profile. Accolades will come soon enough. GM is still smarting from the press of plant closings and layoffs. Introducing a new supercar just might not set well. Corvettes at Carlisle might be a good place for its first public appearance but I think they will hold the first public appearance at the NCM 25th Anniversary celebration where they will have a very captive and extremely loyal audience. I don’t think the public reveal will be announced by the NCM on its scheduled itinerary for the 25th. It will be as a poorly kept secret as the C8 has been! Besides doing it front of deserving loyal owners, I think it just makes good business sense.

                          If if you are an NCM member you should have received your current e-newsletter announcing that more information will be given of the C8 at this week’s Bash! There has even been a camo’d C8 seen at a local gas station to the NCM. Look for the NCM to play a big role in the roll out of the C8.

                            Lime Rock is way to small to reveal the C8. Plus the area around the track has very limited places to stay. Although, it’s a track steeped in history, I think that it is too small for the speed and size of current race cars.

                              Good points raised about the lack of facilities around there for an overnight stay, etc. And the track’s facility capabilities in addition to a major race. Thanks Racer86!
