DR. PETE GIMENEZ TO SPONSOR CORVETTE LEGENDS INVITATIONAL
 
Since our inception in 2009, Dr. Pete Gimenez, author of the outstanding book Corvette Racing Legends, The Story of the L/88 Option Package, has been a huge supporter of what we do. He has been buying, selling and restoring Corvettes since the early 70’s, and is truly a pioneer when it comes to sharing his passion. In fact, his first Corvette website was launched back in 1995, long before many of us even knew what the internet was! Dr. Pete’s first book, a 424 page hardcover, contains an incredible collection of over 500 photos, many never published. His intense research reveals something that only a person that is truly passionate could assemble. He has had the pleasure of having direct contact and developing friendships with many of the people who were there “back in the day”, including Tony DeLorenzo, Gib Hufstader and many others, and he has assembled facts and stories right from the sources. When Dr. Pete decided to take on this project, he was committed to doing something that had never been done before, and his is truly one of the finest Corvette books ever published.

Corvette Racing Legends by Dr. Pete

 
For the past several years, Dr. Pete has joined us at the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show, signing his book, and talking about the hobby and Corvettes, with our participants and spectators. This year, he has decided to step things up a notch by sponsoring and assembling a very impressive group of notable Corvettes, with an emphasis on the 45th and 50th Anniversary years of 1965 and 1970. Not limited to racers, this diversified group will include Dan McMichael’s Baldwin-Motion Phase III GT, along with additional unique 1965 and ‘70 models from the Pro Team Private Reserve, Werner Meier and Ed Foss Collections. Each of these cars is something incredibly rare and unique, and each of the owners is a well respected long term enthusiast, people you really need to meet!

Dr. Pete will be at the show to also talk about his new book, Corvette Racing Legends, Volume 2. This one continues the original story of Corvette Racing Legends into the 21st Century. This volume highlights Corvette racing from the early 80’s into the 90’s, and finally into the 21st century with coverage of the C4 Corvettes, the C5 Corvettes, and the C6 Corvettes. All of the photos are from the personal collection of Dr. Pete and have never been published. If you want to learn more about who, how and why, both of these books are absolute must haves. Believe me, you need to make a point of meeting Dr. Pete and the group of owners at the show this year for this very special gathering.
