Throughout the FIA World Endurance Championship’s 1000 Miles of Sebring, the IMSA-sanctioned Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring, and all support classes and practice sessions, Corvettes of all vintage lined the grassy field just outside the track’s notoriously tricky Turn 17.
The current generation C7 was the best represented, with models on hand ranging from the Stingray to Z06, Grand Sport and even the ZR1 supercar. There were plenty of pristine C5 and C6 generations, too. Additionally, several classics were in the mix, including one 1963 coupe which has had the same owner for 51 years, and a 1967 Stingray which has amassed an unbelievable number of miles.
In addition, registered Corvette fans were treated to meals, appearances by drivers and Corvette Racing staff, an auction and the opportunity to complete parade laps on the track.
The program takes place at sports car races across the country, but Sebring is always one of the year’s most popular. It’s easy to understand why.
