The Chevrolet Corvette has always been relatively inexpensive to purchase and maintain thanks to its simple and proven design. It’s also rather versatile, perfectly at home on the road, the drag strip or the road course. We doubt the Corvette engineers ever intended for the car to compete in rallying though, but that doesn’t matter to this care-free C5-owner.
You could call his off-road hoonage pure idiocy, but seeing a Corvette treated like it is a Subaru Impreza as it’s flung around some acute left-handers on an all-dirt rally stage is refreshing. Many Corvette owners have their prized possession tucked away in their garage, perfectly detailed and underneath an expensive cover. It looks like this car has never delighted in that kind of treatment, and has been driven hard for the majority of its short lifetime.
The video, which is below, is titled the ‘Worlds Greatest Corvette Rally Race’ but were willing to bet it’s more like the ‘Worlds Only Corvette Rally Race’. If you’re opposed to abuse against Corvettes, we’d suggest sitting this one out.
