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!
