The C7 Vette becomes Indy’s Official Pace car for 2013’s race
Indy fans get ready because the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray has been selected as the official pace car for this year’s Indianapolis 500. This will mark the 12th time the Corvette model has served as pace car for the grand-daddy of all races … and how appropriate since the Corvette is essentially a race car that’s designed for urban streets. The exterior color for the pace car will be Laguna Blue Tintcoat and there will be no exterior mods to the car.
Jim Campbell, GM’s VP of performance vehicles had this to say about the selection, “It is an honor to help inaugurate the all-new Corvette Stingray at the hallowed Brickyard and further the legacy between Chevrolet and the Indianapolis 500. The 2014 Corvette Stingray’s performance was influenced by racing, making this prestigious assignment even more fitting.”
We’ll all anticipate this years race and the cameo appearance of the new Stingray. The pace Vette will undoubtedly compliment the Indy 500 like the bacony bacon bits on top of a big ol’ cobb salad … mmm, even better.
This year’s race is slated for Sunday, May 26th.
