Ultimate Corvette Experiences - Ride in a Racer
Be one of 18 lucky people to take a victory lap in the very Corvette that Briggs Cunningham took to Le Mans in 1960, which won its class for the first time in history. During the 16th Anniversary Event September 2-4 at the National Corvette Museum, Lance Miller will be allowing a limited number of enthusiasts the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take the passenger seat for a victory lap around the National Corvette Museum in this historic race car.
For a donation of $100 to benefit the National Corvette Museum and the Chip Miller Foundation, participants will enjoy two laps around the Museum with professionally shot pictures capturing the experience. Afterward you’ll get a complimentary photo, special poster and a certificate signed by Lance Miller and Wendell Strode to commemorate the event and thank you for your support. Sign up for these limited spots through the event registration online. Only 9 spots remain.
If you want to test a few newer model Chevrolet vehicles, check out the Ride and Drive - available Thursday, Friday and Saturday 8am to 5pm.
Calling All Ladies!
Ladies' won't feel left out at this event as we have two great activities planned that are primarily geared towards our female Corvette enthusiasts! On Saturday, September 4 from 3-4pm we have our first Ladies' Garage Party. Have you ever wished you knew a bit more about your car so you could understand the mechanic, know if you really needed that suggested service or part? The "party" will educate you on the ABCs of Corvette (car) Service with tips on how to know if a suggested service or part is really needed. The free seminar is in our new PDI Delivery area on the Boulevard.
Back again is our popular Ladies' Oasis in Victory Lane, with two massage therapists, a silver jewelry maker, facials by Lancome, candles, art and more. It is a relaxing and inviting atmosphere to help you unwind! The Oasis is Friday and Saturday from 10am to 3:30pm.
