Meet and Mingle with Mero

If you've seen our Nurburgring display and the video of the record setting laps, or followed the online chatter of records set by Corvette - you might have wondered who was behind the wheel. The NCM Bash is your opportunity to meet Chevrolet's world record holding driver, Jim Mero! Jim will be here to share his stories of setting records, and on display at the Museum are the two latest record setters - the Z06 and ZR1!

Also new to Bash are seminars by GM Powertrain and Design. They'll be doing a seminar with clay model demos - never before seen outside the studio.

As always, the Museum will have an unveiling of the 2013 Corvette and give you the chance to get up close and personal with the cars and the team who designed them - and autograph sessions are available.

See the complete schedule and register online here.
