Virginia International Raceway was packed with Corvettes from all over this past Monday and Tuesday. Dominated by the amazing Z06, there were also plenty of other awesome performers including the new 2010 Grandsport Corvette. The 2 day event consisted of driving classes and open track time for any Corvette owner. If you missed the 2009 Corvette Museum HPDE at VIR you truly missed two great days of performance driving.
Our new 2-piece Corvette rotors were on Steve Landstra’s Z06 Corvette for an on-track test. With speeds approaching 170 mph, Steve really pushed the brakes to the limit and proved that they performed excellent and stood up to heavy track duty. You can buy the same exact rotors for your Corvette in our online store.
The two day event at VIR gave Zip the opportunity to get out to the track meet more of our customers that enjoy the racing side of the Corvette world. While in attendance Zip Corvette was able to answer questions, discuss new Corvette Parts in the making, and meet a bunch of Corvette drivers and enthusiasts alike. Among the most popular topics discussed included our newly finished Mamba Air Intake System and our 2-piece Corvette Rotors. With the combination of high speeds and sharp corners at VIR, every Corvette Brake System will be pushed to the maximum. Zip stocks many of the necessary braking components required for an event like this such as their 2-Piece Performance Corvette Rotors, CarboTech and Hawk Brake Pads, Stainless Steel Brake Hoses, and more. Get your Corvette prepared for the track with Zip!
