Corvette and Car Club Visits
Corvette and Car Clubs who choose to visit the Museum for a special “Club Weekend” can experience the Museum in a totally unique way. Our team can assist with customizing your trip to suit your club’s interest and schedule. Your club is welcome to visit anytime during the year, but we do recommend planning your visit when there is not an event if you would like activities to be club specific. Below you will find a list of activities we can assist or plan for your weekend.
Club Visit Package
The standard club visit package is currently unavailable until plant tours resume. We are happy to assist with planning any of the other activities below for your club.
NCM Motorsports Park
Take touring laps in your own car, or in one of the track’s Corvettes, or hot lap rides with a pro driver. These experiences are scheduled based upon track availability, Monday – Friday. The NCM Motorsports Park reserves the right to reschedule and/or cancel touring laps and hot laps due to weather conditions and other possible extenuating circumstances. We also offer high–speed go-karts and other signature track activities. To inquire about availability contact Justin Carnes at 270-777-4509.
Touring Laps: Participants drive their own car in a lead-follow format for just over four laps on the 3.2 mile road course above highway speeds. Individuals and car clubs of all marques and sizes are welcome and we accommodate a group maximum of five cars per touring group. Reservations are highly recommended.
Hot Laps: Guests are a passenger in one of the track’s Corvettes driven by one of our track professionals for two laps on the Grand Full configuration at racing speeds (over 120 MPH). Age minimum for hot laps is 12. Height minimum is 4’6″. We provide a helmet for all participants and require that long pants and close-toed shoes are worn during hot laps. The NCM Motorsports Park requests a firm headcount for hot lap participants and must be reserved in advance.
Go-Karts: Arrive and drive races in high speed karts are offered March – November.
Corvette Touring: Get behind the wheel of one of our C8 Corvettes for four laps with a pace car.
Corvette Experience: Get coached with two hours of classroom time, alternating with on-track instruction by a professional driver in one of our C8 Corvettes. Lunch and a Museum guided V.I.P. tour is provided.
High Performance Drivers Introduction: A “101” on track program introducing new drivers to the hobby of recreational performance driving in your own vehicle. Ask about a private session for your car club!
Private On-Track Coaching: Get coached on track by pro driver and Corvette Hall of Fame inductee Andy Pilgrim!
All times are scheduled in CENTRAL TIME. No refunds will be issued once the laps are completed

“Our Museum Tour was great, what a great tour guide we had in Debbie, please thank her. Her love and enthusiasm for the museum is apparent and her personal experiences, especially during the sink hole were great.
Our Behind the scenes tour with Dan was really special, he is a wonderful ambassador for the Museum and even had us come back on Tuesday so he could show us a special car. You can tell that he loves his work for the museum and made it very special for us.
WOW is all I can say, we loved being able to run our cars on the Touring Laps, what a rush and we all loved our HOT LAPS. What an amazing facility the Track is and we loved the speed and opportunity to drive on the Track.
This visit we had ten members who experienced the Museum, but after everyone hears of our super cool visit, I am sure that we will be back with more of our fellow Corvette Lovers. On behalf of ourselves and fellow club members,Thank you again for the great visit.”
