Chevy's Corvette is without question one of the most recognized sports cars in the world. Since its introduction at GM's Motorama, Corvettes have been favorites for fans and drivers in a wide variety of racing venues, including endurance events, hillclimbs, Trans-Am, drag racing, and GT Racing. For six decades, Corvettes have battled and defeated some of the the biggest names in the sports car world-Ferrari, Porsche, Cobra, Jaguar-at storied road courses like Le Mans, Daytona, the Nurburgring, Sebring, and Laguna Seca.

Beginning with the Real McCoy, a Zora Arkus-Duntov special raced at Sebring in 1956, this book draws on the history of factory-sponsored and private racing efforts, chronicling the history of the various Vettes that have been put to the test as racing machines. Noted automotive writer and renowned artist David Kimble delves deep into Vette's on-track history to provide the most thorough Corvette racing history ever published. Corvette Racing is illustrated with rare images from GM's media and design archives and complemented by Kimble's own stunning cutaway artwork. For Corvette and racing fans, this book is the definitive word on Corvette's nearly 60 years of competition.
