Earlier today, the Corvette Hall of Fame announced its 2024 class of members-elect, who will be formally inducted into the Corvette Hall of Fame on Saturday, August 31, 2024. For nearly three decades, the Corvette Hall of Fame has recognized personalities who have distinguished themselves through their accomplishments alongside their high standards of integrity and character, reflecting the reputation of Corvette and the National Corvette Museum.

Each year, a leader is inducted into the Corvette Hall of Fame from one of three categories: Racing, GM/Chevrolet, and Enthusiast. The 2024 class features some of the most prolific names in Corvette Racing and Chevrolet history, including:

Racing – Oliver Gavin & Jan Magnussen, Corvette Racing Drivers


Oliver Gavin and Jan Magnussen became two of Corvette Racing’s brightest stars during a decorated run together in the 2000s and 2010s. Gavin joined the team full-time in the No. 4 Corvette in 2003, and the following year Magnussen became a co-driver with Gavin and Olivier Beretta at Le Mans, Sebring, and Road Atlanta. The trio won Le Mans every year from 2004 to 2006, as well as Sebring once and Road Atlanta twice. For the 2007 season, Magnussen was recruited to drive full-time in the No. 3 Corvette. Together, Gavin and Magnussen have won eight championships driving for Corvette Racing, with 51 wins by Gavin and 34 by Magnussen.



GM-Chevrolet – Tadge Juechter, Corvette Chief Engineer 

In 2006, Tadge Juechter became the fifth chief engineer of the Corvette, a position he still holds today. Educated in mechanical and aerospace engineering, GM hired Juechter after he tagged along to a friend’s interview with the company. Juechter’s professional career with Corvette began in 1993 as a Total Vehicle Systems Engineer. To date, he has worked on five generations of Corvettes. He led the development of the C7 and made a special point to redesign the interior of the Corvette. The mid-engine C8 is the first Corvette Juechter got to create from the ground up. Under his leadership, the reputation of the Corvette as one of the world’s finest sports cars continues to grow.



Enthusiast – Richard Prince, Automobile Photographer

Richard Prince is a leading automobile photographer whose connections span the globe. While running a Corvette restoration business in 1992, Prince began writing a column for ‘Vette Magazine. His growing editorial career led him to expand his photography skills and become the official photographer for Corvette Racing. Prince’s photography has appeared in over 400 publications, including Car and DriverRoad & TrackMotor Trend, and Automobile. He also serves as a tech editor for Corvette Magazine, writing several articles including a regular Q&A column. In 1999, Prince published his first book, a C3 restoration and technical guide. More recent works include Corvette 70 Years: The One and Only and Corvette Stingray: The Mid-Engine Evolution.




“Celebrating excellence with our new Corvette Hall of Fame class is not just about honoring the past; it’s about inspiring the future,” explained Kaye Wagner, Chair, National Corvette Museum Board of Directors. “As we welcome these extraordinary individuals into the Hall of Fame, we recognize their enduring contributions and the standards they set for generations to come.”

Founded by the National Corvette Museum in 1998, 2024 marks the 26th anniversary of the esteemed award. Created to recognize the most influential individuals in the history of the Corvette and honor their achievements, nominees are selected by an anonymous panel of Corvette experts. A final group of 100 Corvette professionals makes up the Hall of Fame voting panel, which has inducted only 82 individuals since its inception. Corvette Hall of Fame inductees are featured in the National Corvette Museum Skydome, recognizing their enduring legacy to America’s Sports Car. Those interested in attending the induction ceremony of the Corvette Hall of Fame can purchase tickets in May when registration opens for the National Corvette Museum’s 30th Anniversary event.
