Pace Car Reunion Offers Behind the Scenes Access September 22-24

This bi-annual event is expanded to include a road tour that will take you behind the scenes at many places not open to the public!

A kick-off is set for Wednesday, September 22 with a private Corvette Plant tour and visit with Bob Parcell, Plant Manager. Next is an update on the Motorsports Park project and guided Museum tour followed by a catered Meet 'n Greet drivers/ navigators meeting before staging and caravanning to Indianapolis.

Activities along the road tour include Chip Ganassi / Target Racing team garage tour, Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Hall of Fame Museum visit, Ray Skillman Car Collection viewing, dinner and visit at Andy Wolf's Car Collection, Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg Museum visit, Milford Proving Ground laps, Pratt & Miller lunch and tour, GM's Heritage Collection viewing and more! This is definitely a behind-the-scenes tour you won't want to miss.

View the full event agenda and register online here. Don't have a Pace Car? No worries! The caravan will include other Corvettes, followed by any metal cars.
