2. National Corvette Museum Historic SCCA GT1 Corvette Race Car
Remarkably another distinctive Corvette race car made an appearance at the CHGP. Just refurbished and on track was a highly developed SCCA GT1 Corvette race car that was donated to the National Corvette Museum where it has been displayed since 1994. Doug Bethke won the hotly contested runoffs at Road Atlanta, back-to-back in 1981 and 1982. The NCM is raising funds for appearances and rides at other circuits. Your support is most welcome.
