Video: Corvette Racing Shows How Engine Tech Goes From Track To Street

The Chevy Corvette isn't selling like it did in the years before our economy melted down, but it's still selling--and coming back. This video, the second episode in season two of Corvette Racing's Track To Street series, shows how it's leveraging its racing program to improve its street cars--and vice versa.

From using production methods to build its race engines, to using the race car as a testbed for internal friction reduction and combustion efficiency development that eventually finds its way back into GM's road cars, the video shows off just how relevant racing can be--even in today's emissions and fuel-economy obsessed landscape.
