    Exclamation 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray pace car wows at Belle Isle Gra

    Filed under: Motorsports, Coupe, Performance, Videos, Chevrolet, GM


    Chevrolet first debuted its Corvette Stingray pace car at the 2013 Indy 500, but this past weekend saw the new 'Vette return to its home during the Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix. As you'll recall, open-wheel racing returned to Belle Isle in 2012 as part of a three-year deal worked out between General Motors, the Penske Corporation and IndyCar.

    Driving the Corvette Stingray pace car during the Belle Isle IndyCar festivities was none other than GM's North American President, Mark Reuss. In the first video posted below, Reuss talks about the new Corvette's rev-match downshift feature, which he considers his favorite part about the C7 Stingray driving experience. Reuss also discusses what he likes most about the Belle Isle track - a course that went through a number of revisions after .

    This year's featured a dual IndyCar race, with teams competing in two 70-lap competitions on both Saturday and Sunday. In both races, many a caution flag was thrown, including a lengthy Corvette-paced session during Sunday's race due to a 10-car crash, but hey, at least the track stayed intact this year. Saturday's race was won by Honda driver Mike Conway, with Chevy driver Ryan Hunter-Reay taking second and Justin Wilson, also Honda-sponsored, in third. Sunday saw Honda drivers in all three podium spots, with Simon Pagenaud, James Jakes and Mike Conway taking the one-two-three spots, respectively.
