If you haven’t heard, the National Corvette Museum (NCM) has been arranging to build what it calls The Motorsports Park — for all intents and purposes, a track — for quite a while. And it seems that NCM’s plans are beginning to take concrete shape, as it has recently provided a status update on the progress of the venture.
For starters, the design of the track has been approved, and geotechnical engineering on the site has begun — with the official groundbreaking set for Friday, June 28th 2013 during the Museum’s 60th Corvette Anniversary Celebration. Subsequently, the grand opening of the Motorsports Park is planned for the 2014 Labor Day weekend, which will be celebrated in conjunction with the Museum’s 20th Anniversary and the 5th National Corvette Caravan.
As for the construction of The Park, bid documents should be prepared by May 2013, with track designers Steve Crawford and engineering firm DDS Engineering heading up the project.
Now, who can not wait to open up a C7 (or any other generation Corvette, for that matter) at The Motorsports Park?
