2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray: Track Day Trip Home
May 8, 2014
We made it. Two days of burning tires, brakes and fuel (lots of fuel) during our car/motorcycle track weekend at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
First order of business: Food. Authentic Mexican restaurant on the way out of town? Check.
And yes, with that 6.2-liter 460-horsepower V8, she gets a might thirsty when driven in anger. We averaged 5.8 mpg over the two days of full-throttle flogging at Laguna Seca.
But unlike your usual track car, the Vette is easy to live with to and from. Surprisingly comfortable and supremely easy to drive out on the road, and with all the modern conveniences.
Now our Lime Rock Green Vette is back at the office, squeaky track pads off, stock ones back on. And, um, yep: We need new tires.
Stay tuned for GoPro video footage of our track weekend coming soon. Until then, we'll resume normal Corvette long-term updates.
