In February Elkhart Lake's Road America's Program Manager Mike Kertscher
took a Chevrolet Corvette Pace Car out of the garage to have some fun on
and around the 4-mile road course just after a light snowfall.
Situated on 640 grassy acres in the rolling, wooded hills of Wisconsin's
Kettle Moraine is Road America, an internationally known motorsports
complex. With one of the country's longest road racing circuits, this
world-acclaimed facility has been hosting motorsports events and
enthusiasts since 1955.Road America also offers a wide range of
opportunities including group adventure programs, driving schools and the
popular motorcycle school.
With 59 years of history and advancements in technology and design, it is
no wonder Corvette has carved a permanent niche into the global automotive
landscape. It's the top-selling high-performance sports car in its segment
and stands alone as the only truly American sports car in the competitive
class. And now with advancements in performance and technology, Corvette
reaches new heights again in 2012.
From its standard 430-horsepower LS3 all-aluminum
V8 engine, 190-mph performance and its 26 MPG highway fuel efficiency,
Corvette defines state-of-the-art technology, engineering and design among
luxury sports cars year after year.
