Motus - Birthplace of Speed
The Motus MST prototypes in Daytona for Bike Week 2011. The bikes are seen
here on Ormond Beach, the birthplace where speed and motorcycles were
forever linked in 1904 thanks to Glenn Curtiss.
This video marks the end of our week-long "officially official" prototype
unveiling, and the beginning of our American Sport Tour. Follow the Motus
Facebook page for the latest updates on our whereabouts throughout 2011.
Special thanks to our Pratt & Miller Support Crew and for their incredible
dedication and expertise.

ZR1 Nurburgring Official 7:26.4 Record Corvette Lap!!
With development engineer Jim Mero behind the wheel, the ZR1 paced the
Nürburgring in a time of 7:26.4. The engine rpm and the vehicle speed are
the actual data taken during this lap. The elapsed time was measured
electronically and confirmed with two hand-held stopwatches. The video is
continuous and unedited. Watch and listen as the ZR1 tackles the twists
and turns of "the Ring" and sets one of the fastest times ever clocked for
a production car. Distributed by Tubemogul.

After 15 separate events in 20 days covering almost 6000 miles, the first
leg of the American Sport Tour is a wrap. These tours, which will come to
the four corners of the U.S., are designed to test our machines in
different environments and meet with dealers, fans and customers along the
way. First leg....mission accomplished.

1985 C4 Corvette-Kart vs. 2014 Lingenfelter C7! - Roadkill Ep. 35
On this episode of Roadkill, we hack the entire body off a C4 Corvette,
cage it, and call it a race car! Freiburger and Finnegan fulfill a dream
that began four-plus years ago when they first wrote the "Vette Hack"
article for HOT ROD magazine, slicing 900 pounds of ugly fiberglass off of
a 1985 Corvette to prove that it would handle better in the autocross. Less
weight means more acceleration, better cornering, and better stopping. The
idea is proven once again here as the guys add a 350-horsepower rat-rod engine,
rebuild the trans, remove more weight, and make it rigid, safe, and stylish
with a full rollcage. Next, they head into a shootout with a 2014 Corvette
upgraded by Lingenfelter Performance Engineering with an Edelbrock blower,
Kooks headers, and Corsa Exhaust for a
wicked-sounding 640 horsepower. And then, of
course, there's the off-road mayhem. The Vette Kart rocks!
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.

2015 Corvette Z06 - 3x start-up, revs, on-board ride!
My friend recently took delivery of his 2015 Corvette Z06. He took me for
a quick ride, albeit a subdued ride, as he is breaking it in carefully for
the first 500 miles before its first oil change.
Watch for three start-ups, a few revs and a quick on-board ride!
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.
