Popular This Week: From An Electric Corvette To A Supercar SuperBus
Welcome to the weekend, race fans! Well, we welcome car fans of all kinds, but this weekend, yours truly is down in Baltimore for the Grand Prix! This is a unique weekend in which an ALMS race (modified Corvettes and Vipers, as well as prototypes) is held on one day, and the IndyCar Grand Prix is held on the next. There is a lot of racing going on, and this coming week, we’ll have a host of stories on technology that has made its way from the racecar to the road, and how Corvette’s racing tires helped develop the tires for the ZR1 and C7 Corvettes!
