More than 1,000 Corvette enthusiasts turned out at the National Corvette Museum to help celebrate the announcement of Michelin’s tire sponsorship of the new NCM Motorsports Park. The global company, which has had a rich history with Corvette over the past decade, has inked a three-year deal with the Museum that will include product displays and three major events at the new race track.

It appears the jury is still out on whether all of the “Magnificent Eight” Corvettes damaged in the sinkhole at the National Corvette Museum will be restored. Some of the cars (like the 2001 Mallett Hammer Z06) are so badly mangled that it’s hard to imagine what it would take to actually restore them. Of course, the Museum has already said it will display all the damaged Corvettes through the summer for visitors to see. Now it seems museum officials might leave a few of the cars unrestored and on display permanently.
