New 'One Lap of Kentucky' Road Tour Added to Fall Event Line Up

For those of you who want to enjoy driving and touring in your Corvette, we offer our latest Museum in Motion Tour, the First ' One Lap of Kentucky' Sightseeing Tour.   And to make this even more unusual, for a change the State Police will all be in front of you rather than suddenly appearing in your mirror!  This tour is a joint fundraiser for the National Corvette Museum and Trooper Island, the camp supported by the Kentucky State Police.  Tour dates are October 12-16 with a late afternoon introduction and drivers’ meeting in the National Corvette Museum on October 12 and the tour departing on the 13th.

The event is budget priced at $625 for the driver and $225 for their guest, which includes three nights lodging, three lunches, two dinners and all attraction admissions! Read more on our blog here, or check out the agenda and register here!

This week's question was: What formula race car driver took delivery of their ZR1 at the Corvette Museum last year?

Congratulations to Stan Westerfield of Monroe, NC. He correctly identified Mario Andretti as taking delivery of his ZR1 at the Museum in 2009! Stan scored a Corvette prize and passes to the museum!
