Ready to go racing at the National Corvette Museum?

May 16, 2008

Most people know that the National Corvette Museum is starting a $10,000,000 expansion. What many of you don’t know is that it includes a Motorplex!

The NCM recently purchase 70 acres off Grines Lane, near Porter Pike, that will be used for the motorplex.

The park will include a 1.5-mile drag strip, autocross track and road course that will be used for the museum’s driving school and major events it now hosts at the nearby museum.

Once the track is completed, hopefully in the next few years, the museum would have the flexibility of adding more driving events without having to coordinate with Beech Bend.The museum has been limited to the number of racing-related events it has for gatherings to about four a year because of the busy schedule at Beech Bend Raceway.

Another big plus for the new track is that the museum already employs a certified driving instructor in Roc Linkov, who currently serves as events manager of the museum.His knowledge will certainly help drivers better handle their powerful sports cars.
