2013 MiM KY 1 Lap (1) – KSP Xperience
 October 8 – 12, 2013



2013 will usher in the 4th 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. 2010 tour visited western KY,  including the Land Between the Lakes and Owensboro  - 2011 tour was dedicated to KY finest Bourbon & Horses tour ending in Lexington – the 2012 Artisans Tour - eastward again visiting Trooper Island, areas in Berea, the center of Kentucky Artisan and Craft skills and seeing the legendary Renfro Valley for an evening show. 2013 will be known as the KSP experience. 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 different weeks in October.
