2012 Corvette Hall of Fame Inductees Announced

The National Corvette Museum today announced the following inductees to be recognized at the Museum's 18th Anniversary event as part of the 15th Annual Corvette Hall of Fame Ceremony in 2012: Gary Claudio in the category of GM/Chevrolet; Patrick Dolan in the category of Corvette enthusiast/historian; Bob McDorman also in the category of Corvette enthusiast/historian; and Andy Pilgrim, a champion driver for Corvette Racing.

Gary Claudio spent over 27 years at GM, starting in the Pontiac Division but transferring to Chevrolet in 1998 as Manager of the Chevy Race Shop. He worked with Doug Fehan to develop the Corvette Race Program, securing original sponsors and obtaining funds for the program from Chevrolet management.

Patrick Dolan has been very active in NCCC, serving as VP of Competition, President and Director of Charity. He is a founding member of the NCM and was present at the first general meeting in Cypress Gardens, FL in January 1989.

Bob McDorman has been a premier Corvette collector for over 50 years and purchased his own Chevrolet dealership in 1965. In addition to being a Lifetime Member of the Museum and big supporter of the Museum's programs he was awarded the Time Magazine Quality Dealer Award in 1978 and 2007, 2010 Bloomington Gold "Great Hall" Inductee and numerous other humanitarian and achievement awards.

Andy Pilgrim joined Corvette Racing in 1999, earning his first victory with teammate Ron Fellows at Texas Motor Speedway in 2000 and in 2001 finished 2nd in GTS at Sebring and Le Mans, and was on the winning team for the Petit Le Mans in Atlanta. His support of the Museum included fundraising golf outings, and he continues to serve as an instructor at our HPDEs.

The induction ceremony will take place on Friday, August 31. Stay tuned to eNews for notification of registration opening. Read more about each inductee online here!
