1969 Corvette Rally Car Runs Hard in Swiss Race
A 1969 Chevrolet Corvette doesn’t usually end up as a rally car in Switzerland.
But this video shows a C3 Stingray more than holding its own apparently competing in the Rallye Crit?rium Jurassien 2012 against a Ferrari and another small car.
We say apparently because we searched the Internet high and low but could find no record of who was driving this Corvette nor how it finished in the rally. Same with the Ferrari.
Regardless, this classic Corvette sounds great as it handles the twists and turns of a small road in Switzerland well, as it passes onlookers, stores, and homes dotting the countryside.
For those who aren’t familiar with rally racing, it takes place on public or private roads with modified production or specially built road-legal cars, according to Wikipedia. It’s set apart from other racing by competing in a point-to-point format in which participants and their co-drivers drive between set control points, leaving at regular intervals from one or more start points. Rallies may be won by pure speed within the stages or by driving to a predetermined ideal journey time within the stages.
