Track to Street: Corvette Racing Series, Episode 8

Posted on by + 21

We looks at cars everyday. Wait, scratch that, we look at A LOT of cars on a daily basis and rarely do we ever think of the people behind the car. Yes, we talk about different automakers and the cars they will be debuting, but we hardly ever talk about the people whose jobs are to evolve and progress the vehicles they are working on. Well, Chevrolet has changed that.

This is Episode 8 of the Track to Street Corvette Racing Series. This episode takes the viewers on a trip into the world of progressive car making. Through an ongoing development process called cascade engineering, Corvette Racing’s engineering staff is continually refining the Corvette so it can achieve optimal performance.

It’s actually a pretty interesting video. Don’t expect fireworks and loud, revving engines, but take a look at it to see all of the work that gets the Corvette from the track to the street.

one good thing about the Corvette Racing is that they don’t focus in the car and the pilot but also in the person behind the scene,,
just like the designer, engineer and the audiences..

Pretty sure this is incorrect. When they moved down to GT2 last year, they were using a de stroked version of the LS7. Someone can correct me if I’m wrong, but my understanding is that the current "GM 5.5L V8" (as listed on the CR site) is an entirely new and different block, and likely the one that will end up in the next road going Corvette.

Uh, not all cars that go into production do this, and most to not have the success the Corvette team has had on the track.

Yeah, I was unaware of the extensive Camry racing program that helps develop road-going Camry’s.

Great show from the first episode from the present now wonder, why everyone loves Le Mans.

Great inspiration really contributes to a great performance. And I guess its the great time for “ behind the scene” to be mention.

Very nice, all the GT cars have similar R&D but Corvette Racing share some of these information and data with their fans... and i like this thing smiley

This one is really an interesting set. Lets you see how the Corvette is slowly developed into a cool car.

Yeah!, Corvette collection would not be these good ever.

nice 3d, but did they used a flex frame here? because based on the 3d movie the frame moved +1 and -1 when turning.

This is the great reason why i like watching the corvette, cause they let us know who are the person behind the curtains (if you know what i mean.)
