Corvette Racing History
– Index –
Corvettes are a great car and a great hobby! I like their history, I like their future and I like their right now. Since this web site is my hobby, you can enjoy this history of Corvette racing without banners, ads or pop-ups. There is a lot of info on some pages and very little on others – stories yet to be told. Enjoy!!
1953 to 1957 The rich history of Corvette racing started early. You might be amazed to see how early the owners took to the track!
1957 The 1957 Sebring Mystery car.
1959 Number 614 – a famous California racer
1959 The Purple People Eater
1959 The Stingray
1960 A picture of the #1, #2 and #3 Le Mans cars and several pages of detail shots of the restored #2 and #3 cars along with other pictures “back when”.
1962 Was a Corvette entered in the 1962 Le Mans race?
1963 Grand Sport Index – the first purpose-built factory Corvette GT
1963 Grand Sport 002
1963 Number 614 again – another famous California racer
1969 and 1970 An incredible story!
1983 to 1996 Finally!
1999 to 2004 I started this section from the first day of C5 Racing. It is very complete.
2005 to 2013 My interest waned in the C6 era. Intense in the early years, faded toward the end.
2014 to 2020(?) Still adding info occasionally, mostly chassis number related
July 25, 2014 – IMSA Race Indianapolis Motor Speedway – Yep, that’s me!
