The trip will include lodging for at least five nights, tickets to the Le Mans race, tickets to the Corral, Paddock passes, transportation from Paris to Le Mans and back, two days of sightseeing from Paris to Le Mans and transportation to and from the track to lodging and to Le Mans city for the Parade of Pilots.

Museum in Motion: Mosport / Canada

The 2011 MiM season continues with the Mosport Tour, July 19-24, to Ontario, Canada. Meeting in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, the 5-day tour takes participants through Ontario enjoying back roads, resorts, quaint villages, a casino and ending with two days attending the ALMS race at the Mosport International Raceway. Enjoy a VIP tour of the St. Catharines engine plant, where Corvette motors are made, and the Oshawa Assembly Plant where Camaros are assembled. 

This event is limited to only 35 cars/70 participants and the fee covers hotels for 6 nights, the welcoming banquet; dinner Wednesday, a boat ride and BBQ with Corvettes of Durham and corral access at Mosport.  At the track attendees will enjoy corral parking, access to the paddock, parade lap, celebrity car show and a BBQ lunch.

For members the tour fee is $1700 for the driver and $390 for their guest.  Non-member fees are an additional $40 each and include a Museum membership.  The Museum in Motion tours are very popular and with limited space it’s important to sign up here promptly while there is still space.

Special Event Notes:  You will need a passport to enter Canada and return to the U.S.

Vets 'n Vettes Registration Live

An annual tradition in its 4th year, Vets ‘n Vettes offers a number of new ways to enjoy camaraderie with others who have served.

Thursday begins with the raising of the POW/MIA flag to start off the event.  Poker runs, a military themed movie in the theater, lunch tour and a guided Museum tour round out the day.  Thursday evening we have a casual meet 'n greet in the NCM Boulevard with pizza and cold drinks. Friday features a return trip to the 118th Airlift Wing based in Nashville including lunch.  On return we will have the group photo, Military History trivia contest and free area road tour in the afternoon.  Saturday is the event everyone loves – the annual Bowling Green Veterans Day Parade – where all attending Corvettes can participate!  After the parade participants will return to the Museum for lunch and the Warrior Session.  Seminars round out the afternoon and then the event wraps up with a banquet in the NCM Conference Center. 

General registration for Vets ‘n Vettes is only $10. We hope you can join us November 3-5, 2011!
