Mike's Dream Ride

Greetings Fellow CJCC Members:

 

I just wanted to share with you the exciting news.  I was invited to test drive the new C7 Corvette with the Z51 package at the Monticello Race Club on Friday.  Chevrolet staged the event with 50 brand new Stingrays under 3 different track conditions for the first ever public driving experience.  It was FREAK'N AWESOME!!!!!!!  I had the opportunity to drive 3 different cars........2 with the new 7 speed manual and 1 with the paddle shift automatic.

The rev matching of the 7 speed manual was amazing.  While downshifting into a turn, the engine speed automatically increases RPM to match the drive train making the change in speed a seamless operation.  I also got the opportunity to take the automatic car through an auto cross testing the car under all 5 driving setting with the twist of a knob located on the driver's console.

It was definetly an opportunity of a lifetime and I look forward to sharing my photos and driving experience with you in more detail at our next club meeting.  In the meantime, I have attached some of the event details along with a few of the pictures.  The white/black with red interior was definetly my top choice!

 

I still can't wipe the grin from my face!

 

Regards,

Mike W.
