2015 MiM KY 1 Lap (1) –
 October 12 - 17, 2015




 

 

2015 will usher in the 6th 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 October.

  • Tour 1 – Oct. 12 Through Oct. 17
  • Tour 2 – Oct. 19 Through Oct. 24
  • Tour 3 – Oct. 26 Through Oct. 31

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
