Corvette Racing Series, Episode 4 Online Now


If you've ever heard the Chevrolet Corvette ALMS car, you'll know that they are far and away the loudest, most evil sounding cars in the field, an impressive feat when you're competing against Porsche 911s, Aston Martins and open-cockpit prototypes. For a car that sounds like Armageddon, one would expect that being green isn't exactly a priority, but the latest episode of the Corvette Racing Series shows that the team can find ways to go fast and back up their green credentials. Using little tricks like ceramic wheel bearings, lower rolling resistance tires and lightweight body panels, the 'Vettes are able to go faster with less fuel, which is the same logic behind Porsche's 911 GT3R Hybrid,

Coincidentally, the road-going Corvette delivers very respectable fuel economy numbers, especially considering the massive V8s used in them. Sadly, the old dogmatic meme of a gas-guzzling V8 refuses to die.

See the video at the link below.
