National Corvette Museum Offers New Racing Experience

By January 3, 2018February 18th, 2021No Comments

The National Corvette Museum now offers visitors of any age the opportunity to get behind the wheel of a Corvette for a fun and exciting racing experience. The racing simulator uses a real C6 Corvette for the cockpit, and is surrounded by three screens to provide the racetrack’s visuals. Additionally, the car is equipped to engage in life-like movements during the experience.

While the Corvette is currently clad in LeMans Blue, in the coming weeks it will be wrapped and decaled to resemble the Corvette Racing C6.R – with decals coming straight from the Pratt & Miller team.

Drivers get to select from three Corvettes to drive: a C6 Grand Sport Convertible, C7 Stingray Coupe, and Corvette Racing C7.R. While the simulator’s software offers a number of track layouts, plus day and night settings to choose from, visitors can currently drive Monza for their session.

Sessions are $10 each, lasting approximately four minutes in length. There is no age restriction to drive, though participants need to be able to reach the pedals and steering wheel. Passengers are welcome.

The Museum is open daily, 8am-5pm Central Time. Participation in a session on the simulator is separate from Museum admission.

Purchase of the simulator is thanks to the many Corvette and Museum enthusiasts who contributed to the 501(c)(3) non-profit’s fall 2017 giving campaign.
