Replica of Famous 1954 Corvette Race Car Crashes in Mexico

By October 28, 2010

Follow me on:

The La Carrera Panamericana is one of the great races you can enter in a classic car. It's 10 days and thousands of miles from the Honduran border to the U.S. Border - clear across Mexico, including right through downtown Mexico City. The current event is a revival of the class Mexican Road Race of the 1950s, and competitors love to bring vintage iron - and fiberglass - to the race.

Street Legal TV has the story of how this Corvette - a replica of the famous Von Esser Corvette that raced in the La Carrera Panamericana back in the 50s was sadly crashed at this year's event, happening right now down in Mexico.

As I like to say, the first rule of racing is: If you can't afford to walk away from a wreck, don't even think about racing. This wreck doesn't look so bad. I bet they fix the glass and try it again next year.
