Z06X Corvette “Track Car” Concept Canadian Debut March 24, 2011Posted by wilsonniblett in Auto News, Auto Racing, Enthusiastic Commentary.
Corvette enthusiasts have long been enamored with the style of this iconic sports car over the decades. However, it is the performance of the breed that keeps most of them fiercely loyal to the brand!
Many Corvette owners have raced their cars on drag strips, autocross tracks, road rallies and road courses. These owners want to enjoy every bit of power and handling that these cars will provide. As the technology of the Corvette has advanced over the years, drivers have realized that they have a formidable machine right out of the box. While that is true, there are many modifications that owners must do to meet competition association rules for increased performance and above all,safety !
As the lineage of the incredible marque has evolved into the performance icons of today, such as the Z06 and the ZR1, there have been more owners heading for road race tracks to test their skills and experience the rush of on track driving.
Chevrolet has been involved with the enthusiasts and racers for decades, with many of the corporate staff being “TrackRats” themselves. The Corvette Racing Team and it’s success has been an integral part of the development of the current Corvette. So it is no surprise that Chevrolet has created a Z06X Concept Corvette that just screams “Take me to the nearest road race track!” written all over it;-)
While this stellar concept was unveiled at the last SEMA Show, it will make it’s Canadian debut at the 11th Annual Corvette Tech Session at Wilson Niblett Motors on Saturday March 26th from 1:00pm to 4:00pm.
