corvette_3The Corvette Nation is out in force this weekend, celebrating the grand opening of the National Corvette Museum (NCM) Motorsports Park in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

More than 8,500 Corvette owners and enthusiasts from across the U.S. and Canada have caravanned here to be part of the opening festivities.

Corvette Racing factory team driver Tommy Milner, a 2011 Le Mans 24 Hours GT race winner and 2012 ALMS GT co-champion made the Corvette C7.R one of the stars of the opening weekend. Milner also drove Corvette owners in their own cars in exchange for donations to the museum and park.

The entire project was funded by individual Corvette owners, Corvette Clubs and friends and is overseen by the NCM board of directors.

Two circuits combine to create a 3.15-mile road circuit that includes replicas of the Mulsanne Corner and Porsche Curves from the Circuit de le Sarthe, home of the fabled 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The NCM Motorsports Park is open to all makes and has already been booked for over 150 events, the first of which is a BMW club event.
In recent weeks, Michelin, Holley and Mobil 1have all announced official sponsorship programs with the NCM Park. On Friday it was announced that the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School will become the official school of the National Corvette Museum and the NCM Motorsports Park.
