"It's a Nano World" Exhibit Opens

This weekend we will officially kick off the start of our new second season exhibit with a Family Fun Day from Noon-3pm in the Conference Center, offering free activities for families. The first 50 kids will receive a complimentary admission pass to our temporary exhibit, "It's a Nano World."

The exhibit is sponsored in part by PNC Bank and offers a number of hands-on activities which teach visitors about nanobiotechnology, or really tiny living things and the tools to study them. The exhibit runs through April 15 and discount tickets are available at local PNC Bank branches. Learn more about this fun travelling exhibition online here!

Powder Puff Mechanics Course Offered

If you've been to a Museum event lately, perhaps you've attended one our newest seminars - the Ladies' Garage Party. This event provides an overview of car care basics geared towards women. The seminar was such a hit that we've created an extended version which is open to the public.

On Saturday, February 11 we are offering a series of sessions that will give you the ins and outs of car care from fluid basics, to all you need to know about tires. The four hour workshop is only $10 for students and $12 for adults and includes lunch and Museum admission in addition to the array of educational seminars. Girl Scouts can also earn a patch for participating! Learn more and register online here.

Corvette Racing Announces 2012 Roster

Corvette Racing will seek its ninth American Le Mans Series championship and its eighth victory in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2012. With a win in the GTE Pro class at Le Mans and runner-up finishes in the ALMS GT team and driver championships last year, America's premier production sports car team has focused on improving all aspects of its performance as it prepares its Compuware Corvette C6.R race cars for the 2012 campaign.

Corvette Racing's revised driver lineup delivers a powerful combination of youth and experience. Antonio Garcia joins Oliver Gavin, Jan Magnussen, and Tommy Milner as the four full-season drivers. Richard Westbrook will reprise his role as third driver in endurance events (Sebring, Le Mans, and Petit Le Mans), and Jordan Taylor (pictured) will join Corvette Racing for the three long-distance races.

Corvette comes to the Rolex Series big time with the Corvette Daytona Prototype, kicking off at Daytona on January 26-29.

The NCM has teamed up with Grand Am and several of the Corvette Prototype Teams including “Spirit of Daytona” to bring an enhanced Corral experience. In addition to the publicized parade lap open to Corvettes on Friday morning, corral participants will also visit the team garages with a chance to meet drivers up close.

Space is very limited in the Corral so you will want to sign up quickly.  Tickets are $35 for Friday and $45 for Saturday/Sunday and include a grandstand/ infield ticket as well as the corral.  Call T J Wagoner from group sales at 386-681-5529 and tell him the NCM referred you to get your tickets. Click here for the corral website.
