MiM 1-Lap of Kentucky 2019 Tour (2)
Oct 14 @ 5:15 pm – Oct 19 @ 11:00 am

 

2019 MiM KY 1 Lap (2)

October  14 – October 19

2019 will be the 10th 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 Kentucky State Police Gray 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 4 different weeks in October.

Registration opening in late spring 2019!
