Stingray Corvette Paces Detroit Indy

Motorsport

One of GM's most senior executives tells us what it's like driving the latest Corvette at the Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix.

Open-wheel racing returned to Detroit's picturesque Belle Isle for a double-header this past weekend. Given GM's involvement, and that half of the grid is powered by its engines, it's only fitting that Chevy should provide the pace car, and what better to serve the purpose than the latest Corvette? Having set the pace at the Indy 500 just over a week ago, the Stingray was back for Belle Isle. Only this time instead of 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh doing the driving, it was GM's own North American President Mark Reuss behind the wheel.

In this video below, Reuss talks about driving the Stingray around the revised racing circuit in his company's home town. While both the back-to-back races were won with Honda engines, Tony Kanaan won the Indy 500 under Chevy power, which has still won more races than the competition so far this season.
