2014 MiM KY 1 Lap (1)
 September 23-27, 2014




 

 

2014 will usher in the 5th annual KY 1 Lap tour, part of the Museum in Motion (MiM) program and unique in that it is a partnership between the National Corvette Museum and the Kentucky State Police. The two organizations join together to raise money for both the Museum and Trooper Island, a KSP non-profit camp for underprivileged children. Each year the Tour explores a different section of Kentucky. As always, the tour will be led by a Kentucky State Trooper, now using a marked red Corvette which is sure to attract attention as the caravan travels through an area of real Americana. Due to overwhelming interest, we are offering this tour 3 consecutive weeks in Sept/October.

  • Tour 1 – Sept 23 through Sept 27

All tours the same except for Keeneland Race Track
Tour 3 includes race tickets / seats only – no behind the scene tours

As with all MiM Tours, space is limited so make sure you sign on to NCM eNews to get the latest information on all events including opening of registration and fees. GPS highly recommended! Questions, contact Karen or Bryce
Registration fee – Primary Registrant (driver and car) $950
Passenger / alternate driver $450
