The Corvette Experience program

You can sign up for the new Corvette Experience program through the National Corvette Museum. In order to drive the C8 Corvette Stingray Z51, you must have a valid driver’s license and be at least 18 years old.

The first part of the program involves classroom instruction about driving the car. Later on, students can practice driving at the NCM Motorsports Park, which has a 3.2-mile track with 23 different turns. To practice on this track in Bowling Green, Kentucky, you must wear closed-toe shoes, long pants, and a helmet for your safety.

When equipped with the Z51 package, the C8 Corvette provides a thrilling driving experience. Its 6.2-liter Small Block LT2 V8 engine delivers 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. The engine pairs with an electronic rear differential and an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. As such, the car is able to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in under three seconds. Instructors will help students have the confidence and knowledge to handle the car’s speed, which can reach 194 mph.
