Corvette Racing and Doug Fehan Support Motorsports Park

With fundraising for the Motorsports Park acreage well underway, Corvette Racing and team Program Manager Doug Fehan have once again stepped up to the plate.

While the team and Pratt & Miller have been working with the Museum on track plans from the start - Doug has now headed up an effort to put together VIP packages to the remaining ALMS races to be auctioned on eBay with proceeds benefitting the park. Each package includes two passes to the race, pit access, lunch with the team and Doug at the transporter and admission to the Corvette Corral Activities and special parking (if you drive your 'Vette). Watch eNews for when these packages go up for auction, and check out our eBay page here.

Special Ron Fellows Car Display Planned

Are you the proud owner of a Ron Fellows ALMS GT1 Champion Corvette Z06? If so, we have a display planned for our Anniversary Celebration that you won't want to miss!

At this year's Hall of Fame induction ceremony, we add Corvette Racing living legend Ron Fellows to the list of greats... and to celebrate we welcome those who have his commemorative Z06 to join us for a special display. Cars are invited to park under the conference center canopy and around the logo circle during this years Labor Day weekend event, September 1-3.

If you've not signed up yet, you only have until August 17 to pre-register! Check out the agenda here.

Your Car on the Cover of America's Sports Car Magazine!

How would you like to see your car on the cover of our America's Sports Car magazine?

Each year the Vets 'n Vettes event gets bigger and better, drawing together soldiers from all over for some fiberglass fun, focusing on freedom, the flag and those who have stood to defend it. If your Corvette has a patriotic paint job, here's your chance to see it showcased on the cover of ASC!

All you need to do is register for the Vets 'n Vettes 2011 event and when here, enter your car in the "People's Choice" car show. We will let the guests who attend decide which car will take top prize. The winner's car will appear on the cover of the January / February 2012 issue of ASC, as well as on the badges for next year's Vets 'n Vettes event!

Check out the complete event agenda online here.
