The New Corvette Racetrack: the Good and the Bad

Remember that motorsports park we first heard about a few years ago that was to be built next to the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky?

“The 3.15-mile facility, which is scheduled to open in time for the Corvette Museum’s 20th anniversary in August, is already booked for 118 events.”

Well, I have some good news and bad news about the racing facility for Corvette fans.

First the good news, which is that the park is only about eight months away from being completed.

Now, the bad news, which is that if you had plans of heading to Kentucky this year to take your Corvette for a run on the new road course, you might have to wait awhile.

The 3.15 mile facility, which is scheduled to open in time for the Corvette Museum’s 20th anniversary in August, is already booked for 118 events.  And on top of that, it won’t just be limited to Corvettes, which means ‘Vette owners could end up sharing track time with some foes of the Chevrolet sports car, according to a GM Authority report.

“One of the things that we’re facing is that we’re not a ‘Corvette-only’ facility, we’re open to any-and-all groups,” general manager of the park, Mitch Wright, told WKU Public Radio. “As a matter of fact, our first group – other than a Corvette event that we’ve planned in late September – our very first client is Bluegrass BMW club.”

That said, if you do own a Corvette and happen to make it to the new racetrack please remember to be nice to the all the visitors.
