Chevrolet launched the new C4 in 1984. Within months they were on the track dominating the competition in SCCA Racing. The series of 10 races ran at tracks around the country where pro and amateur drivers raced against each other in identically prepared Corvettes. The cars were stock production line cars that were equipped with matched engines and the Z51 performance suspension package. The only modifications were safety equipment like Roll Cages, Racing Seats, Safety Harnesses and Fire Suppression.
For 1988, Chevrolet built 56 identical cars, of these 46 were actually raced, and only 22 participated in all 10 races. Today, it is believed only about 35 remain as several were destroyed during the season and GM took back 12 for engineering analysis and ultimately had them destroyed.
This car, #80 has been well preserved since being retired from racing and shown and displayed at numerous Corvette Shows throughout the country, from NCRS Meets, Corvettes at Carlisle Challenge Car Reunions and Bloomington Gold.
