Race to Win Corvette | 427 Convertible Collectors Edition and a Trip to Le Mans
Enter for a chance to win a 2013 Corvette 427 Convertible Collector's
Edition with 60th Anniversary Package plus a trip to the 24 Hours of Le
Mans, France in 2013.
For those who do not know about the 60th Anniversary Package, from GM:
"The Corvette 427 Convertible blends elements of the Z06 and ZR1 models to
create the fastest and most-capable convertible in Corvette's history.
Its heart is the 427-cubic-inch (7.0L) LS7 engine from the Corvette Z06.
Rated at 505 horsepower (377 kW) and 470
lb.-ft. of torque (637 Nm), it is the most powerful engine ever installed
in a production Corvette convertible -- and, like the Z06, the 427
Convertible is only available with a six-speed manual transmission.
The LS7 was co-developed with the Corvette Le Mans-winning GT1 engine and
features lightweight titanium connecting rods and intake valves, as well as
racing-inspired high-flow cylinder heads and a dry-sump oiling system. It
is assembled by hand at GM's Performance Build Center, where customers who
purchase the 427 Convertible Collector Edition can purchase the Corvette
Build Experience option and assemble the engine that will power their new
Supporting performance elements in the Corvette 427 Convertible include the
driveline and rear axle system from the Corvette Z06, a rear-mounted
battery and standard Magnetic Selective Ride Control. The standard 19-inch
front and 20-inch rear wheels are wrapped in ZR1-style Michelin PS2 tires.
Lightweight machine-face Cup wheels -- introduced on the 2012 Corvette Z06
with Z07 and Corvette ZR1 with PDE performance packages -- come standard
and include unique gray-painted pockets. Black Cup wheels or chrome
ZR1-style wheels are also available."

Bosch and Pratt & Miller - Forward Focus Collision Avoidance
A Pratt & Miller Engineering and Bosch Motorsports partnership is taking
steps toward making the world of motorsports safer through an award-winning
radar system. The Collision Avoidance System, which tracks cars and
distances, works as an "extra set of eyes," as Corvette racer Richard
Westbrook described. Track images are captured and overlaid with radar data
on the rear view display. This allows for at-a-glance driver recognition,
even at night and in the rain.
This integration of multiple hardware and software components started
gaining a great deal of attention last March, with its debut at the 12
Hours of Sebring. Within a year's time, the system has received two awards
in the motorsports community, is now in its production ready version and is
about to be shipped across the world to teams in need.
The new version totes some serious improvements: 50% thinner, 30% lighter
and streamlined internal hardware components for improved reliability and
manufacturability. This has been the result of intense collaboration with
Bosch Motorsports and their production expertise over the last two months.
One of the advantages of this system is that the driver doesn't need to
take their eyes off the road; they can utilize it with just their
peripheral vision due to how the interface is designed. "This has kind of
been the goal all along," says Chris Hammond, the Lead Radar System
Engineer at Pratt & Miller. "It's funny that we are developing this product
and putting so much time into how it looks and functions, to have the end
goal of making it so the driver never has to look directly at it."
While the Corvette C7.R is one of the fastest GT cars, they aren't the
fastest overall on the track. With two other faster classes that run at the same time,
being able to see those cars as they are approaching creates a safer
environment for overtaking and provides teams and fans with what they
want— more green-flag racing.
