Default Got to Drive the New National Corvette Museum Track (VIDEO)

We did an event at the new NCM track in Bowling Green, KY last weekend with 10/10ths Motorsports. We ran the 3.2 mile Grand Full course. It rained for the first two days, but on Sunday we got some good weather and I got a few good laps in. Car was running rich because the air temp sensor had broken, unbeknownst to me.

Car has:
VVT swap and supporting mods, Bilstein HDs, ISC shock mounts, Height adjustable springs 650/425, Blackbird Fabworx lexan spoiler, RPF1s with Nitto NT01s

Here's a video of my fastest lap from the weekend...



Still plenty of time left out there but this is a decent start if you're planning on heading out.

That's about what I would expect a track built for Vettes to look like... lots of straights and long corners. Looks like fun though!

I was also at that 10/10ths event with Mike. The track is WAY tighter than I was expecting based on video and track maps. It's a very technical course that's well-suited to our cars. I actually think it would be terrifying with corvette power levels lol.

Had a chance to visit the NCM and their new track few week-end ago during the 20th anniversary of the NCM. Track looks very nice but as a spectator, there's no good views/stands around the track.

Thanks for sharing

Yeah it's awesome.. I was also there with mike and Jeff. Plenty of places to go 100+. And plenty of places to go into some Armco.

(Rumor has it there is a NASA date there in June for 2015) hehehe
