When choosing a road-trip vacation for your family, one must always look for entertaining attractions that will entice the entire family. From young boys, to teenage girls, a well planned trip and exciting destination can mean the difference between an unforgettable vacation, or a disastrous pit stop. Bowling Green, Kentucky has been on the map for American road-trips for some time now, featuring the National Corvette Museum that opened its doors nearly 20 years ago. If that isn’t enough to excite, GM has begun production of a Motorsports Park, also known as the Corvette Track right next to the museum. It sure has us Ford dealers in Cincinnati more than excited for its future opening!
The track will include a 2-mile West, and 1.1-mile East circuit that can also be configured in multiple ways and combinations. This state-of-the-art facility will include paddocks, classrooms, a control tower, and an autocross and skid pad area. With five years of fundraising and planning under its belt, the park was finally ready to break ground last month on June 28. While you won’t see any used cars Cincinnati Ohio on this track, you might be able to catch a glimpse of High Performance Driver Education (HPDE) events as well as other industry-related procedures. GM and Chevy hope to partially open the new facility Labor Day weekend of 2014, which coincides with the National Corvette Museum’s 20th anniversary.
While the track will be used strictly by professional drivers, spectators will be able to view the course when visiting the museum, and with hotels, restaurants, and other things to do close by in Bowling Green – we think it’s the perfect spot to take your family for an unforgettable road-trip next year.
