8:00am Depart for Gary Artis’ Private Collection

 

 

9:45am Arrive Gary Artis Collection

The Gary Artis collection started in 2001 with a purchase of a 1998 Corvette Pace Car. At that time there had been only 4 Corvette Pace Cars and it was Gary’s hope to collect 1 of each. Well, then things really accelerated. In 6 of the next 7 years the Corvette earned the honor of being selected as the Indy 500 Pace Car, which as Gary says “moved the goal posts” quite a bit. Gary did acquire the original 4 Corvette Pace cars he desired and then added 5 out of the 6 next ones. Luckily business was good in late 2000’s and Gary branched off to also collect other Indy Pace Car editions such as Camaros, Trans Ams, Oldsmobile 442’s, a Challenger, a Viper and even a 1984 Fiero. Currently Gary owns 20 Indy 500 Pace Car replicas among his 36 cars.

Attention GT and Prototype Race Fans of ALL Marques!!

On June 17-18, 2017 the world’s greatest car manufacturers will battle at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Through special arrangement with the ACO, three locations outside of France will be given commercial free, direct feed of the race… Berlin, Tokyo and Bowling Green, Kentucky at the National Corvette Museum.

We are planning to show the race on our 28-foot giant screen in the Chevrolet Theater, with live timing and scoring, refreshments during the entire 24 hours, private Skypes from the Corvette Racing team and door prizes. We think this will be the next best thing to being there yourself!
