Andy Pilgrim slips up and leaks C8 info

Andy Pilgrim has been a driver/involved in the Corvette Racing Program since 2009. Corvette Online interviewed him for some insights about the Front engine versus Mid engine handling characteristics. It's a good read, but Pilgrim's closing quote might be the most interesting bit of information provided:

Quote:
“There’s a history there,” he says. “It’s a huge risk, but you’ve got to give a hats-off to any company that takes on this task. There aren’t many sub $100,000 mid-engine sports cars out there, yet it affords much greater potential for a quick racing vehicle. It will be able to run up with the best! It’s gonna be great!”

Corvette ownership is like owning your own fountain of youth ... and we get a sip from it each time the signal turns green.

RACING...Because with baseball, football, basketball, tennis, and golf, you only need one ball

I used to think that I had learned patience as I got older. Then I realized that I just didn't give a shit
