This could be nothing… or it could be something: the National Corvette Museum has a “Special Reveal Event” scheduled for this Friday, June 28th (2013) from 1:00 pm to 1:30 pm at its Conference Center. Did that tickle your fancy? Good, because the presenters will consist of none other than Harlan Charles (Corvette product manager) and John Fitzpatrick (Chevrolet Performance Cars marketing manager) — a feat that adds even more mystery and mystique to the event.
So, what could this special event bring? Given that the official groundbreaking of the NCM’s Motorsports Park (aka the Corvette Track) will take place at 9:00 am on Friday June 28th, the mysterious special event will probably revolve around a different topic than the upcoming track. So, could it be…
- The unveiling of the C7.R?
- The unveiling of a higher-performance Corvette C7, such as the C7 Z06?
- The unveiling of a special edition Corvette C7?
We’re going to enter our hypothesis and say that the event will serve as the unveiling venue for the C7.R this Friday, a prediction whose likelihood is underscored by the fact that Corvette Racing is expected to begin testing the C7 in its racing guise in July for the 2014 racing season — making the timing of such an announcement just right.
