Road America is hosting the IMSA Road Race Showcase. It’s here that Chevrolet decided to show off the new 2020 Corvette. At the Chevrolet Motorsports Display a bronze-looking C8 Corvette was on display. It allowed patrons of the event to take a gander at the new car and ask Chevrolet folks all they need or want to know about the new Vette.
Chevrolet even brought along some of the C8 Corvette’s engineers like Ed Piatek, Corvette Chief Engineer, to talk with people. According to Corvette Blogger, Piatek said the following at the event:
So many of the advancements that Corvette has brought to market can trace their roots back to Road America, including the original Stingray race car. We are excited for fans of Corvette and IMSA to see the 2020 Corvette Stingray at Road America, and I’m especially excited, because I grew up nearby and even raced go karts here in high school.
Corvette Racing tweeted a photo of the car under the tent at the event. While you can see it pretty well, the subtleties of the color are lost in the photo. People on Twitter have been arguing about what the true color of the car is. It looks bronze or dark gold to us. The lighting of the photo makes it hard to tell. At any rate, the 2020 Corvette Stingray still looks darn cool and this makes us miss Road America. It might be time for a trip up to Wisconsin!
