Chevrolet has extended its long-time partnership with the famed, Wisconsin-based race circuit, Road America. The brand will continue its partnership through the year 2019, where legendary Corvettes have been raced and debuted.
“We’re honored that Chevrolet has played a key role in Road America’s racing heritage from the track’s opening in 1955 to today,” said George Bruggenthies, Road America president and general manager. “We’re excited to celebrate this longstanding association of two iconic racing brands and to continue our long, successful relationship together.”
Walking down history alley, Road America has been home to vehicles like the original 1959 Corvette Stingray Racer, where the late Bill Mitchell brought the vehicle to race. The former GM design chief also debuted the Mako Shark concept at the road course in 1961.
The sponsorship itself includes signage, hospitality and vehicle displays at major races. Obviously, that means Corvette. Chevrolet vehicles will serve as official pace cars for track events as well.
