Meet Corvette Racing's New Driver, Tommy Milner at Bash!

On-line registration for the C5/C6 Bash will close in just three weeks... are you signed up? If you want to be one of the first to see the 2012 Corvette, and hear how plans for the C7 are coming along - this is the event to attend! All online registrants will receive a hardcard credential, lanyard, event pin and dash plaque!

This year you aren't going to want to miss our Lunch with the Corvette Race Team and autograph session! Meet new driver Tommy Milner and hear about the changes made for Corvette this season.

Harlan Charles and Kirk Bennion will be on hand to unveil the newest Corvette, and Tadge Juechter will join them for a seminar on "What's New for 2012". Steve Grilli from the Corvette Plant, and Tom Hill team up with Harlan and Tadge to help you get to know your Corvette.

As always, NCM's events get you closer to GM, give you opportunities for questions and put you on the inside track! Don't miss out April 28-30! Agenda here.

Are You a Green Driver?

Have you always wanted to learn techniques that will help you push your Corvette to the limits, and learn the highest level of safe performance driving?

We have the opportunity for you! Now in our 5th year our HPD Event at ViR continues to expand in scope and activities.  In addition to the annual 2-day HPDE with track time, rides and classroom for students, we continue with PrimeDrive which is a reduced 1-day version of an HPDE as well as the chance to ride with Andy Pilgrim and Shields Bergstrom and see how the pros do it.  There are a number of new additions to the event including the skidpad, rides in a vintage race car and a special corral for a spectator celebrity choice car show.   GM engineers, quality control and designers will be in attendance as in the past.  We also will see the return of past vendors Zip Products, KNS Brakes, Michelin Tires and a larger Corvette Store.  As always, spectator admission remains free.

There are a few spots left for those new to our High Performance Driving Events. Check out the information page here, and we hope to see you June 27-28 at the Virginia International Raceway!
