1984 Corvette C4 Launch GM Drivetrain Display 1983 NCRS Judging

We held an NCRSUK Judging School at Claremont Corvette on the 19th March to study the Drivetrain in detail and compare this pre-production display to the NCRS judging manual. Interesting that the original 1984-only recessed-logo Goodyear tyres are dated 25th and 26th week of 1982, the alternator brace a no number prototype, and the alternator probably a later substitution. Most interesting discovery was the engine casting date of November 1982. So mine is almost certainly not the Riverside Long Lead Drivetrain, because it’s cylinder block was cast while that event was happening. Instead it must be another drivetrain built later for the European launch, supported by its leaded fuel exhaust system with no catalytic converter or o2 sensor.

Corvette win Le Mans 2015

We are celebrating a great victory by the C7R #64 Corvette racer in the 2015 Le Mans 24 hour endurance race. Corvette won the hotly contested GTE- Pro class against very close competition from Ferrari and Aston Martin. Tom was there in his 1964 Corvette and visited the pit on Friday afternoon to get these pictures and meet the rest of the #64 crew.

Claremont Corvette at Top Gear studio filming

BBC Top Gear asked for some of our cars to be in the studio at Dunsfold for their C7 Corvette feature on 22nd February. They borrowed our 73 454 and 2005 C6 and invited our entire team for the day as well. If you tried to phone us on Wednesday last week that is why we were closed! It was amazing being in the studio for the filming and great fun. Best of all after many years of jokes about plastic cars the Top Gear team actually like the new C7!
