Default # SPEED Test Drive: Corvette

Tonight

Next Episode
Wed Dec 8 @ 10:30pm ET


From the coupe, which delivers a whopping 430hp and hits a top speed of 190 mph, to the ZR1, which unleashes 638 horses and nails 0-60 in a heart-stopping 3.4 seconds, they are Corvettes – and there is nothing else like them in the world.


Join us, as host Tommy Kendall heads to Carolina Motorsports Park for a wild drive with 5-time NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Jimmie Johnson, and Corvette factory driver Johnny O’Connell.


Next, Johnson hits the track in the C6R racecar that O’Connell runs in the American Le Mans series, to talk about Corvette power and performance – in both their racecar and their street cars.


Then, Kendall hooks up with Carolina Panther’s All-Pro running back – and muscle car enthusiast – D’Angelo Williams, for a laid back cruise along the city streets near the Bank of America Stadium.


Finally, Kendall takes the Grand Sport Convertible for a spin through the scenic back-country roads of South Carolina for a final look at what makes Corvette such an iconic American performance car.


It’s an incredible Test Drive of Corvette’s new 2011 lineup – and it’s only on SPEED!

Forgot about it last night as I was busy in PR&C dealing with entitled idiots.
Just watched it this morning and it was a good show.
Looks like JJ tried to cut too much on the corner where he lost it.

Have a great day

Kneel.

Well actually I am firmly a Socialist. However I have worked for what I have and dont believe anyone should be different. Everyone should work and pay their fair share of taxes and have access to a reasonable level of Government supplied care. That does not mean sponging off the system for years on end.

Governments need to build and supply infrastructure and basic care only.

Have a great day.

What you state does not define a socialist. Do you believe in common or public ownership of all industry? That is Socialism.
