Corvette Racing Legends gives you the story of how the Corvette began its humble racing career with a small block Chevrolet engine back in 1956, and how it progressed through the Corvette SS, Sting Ray racer, the Z06 Sting Ray and the Grand Sport prototypes. These Corvettes would eventually lead to the release of the L-88 competition engine option and its required option package, which would power the Corvette to many International victories. These wins came as quickly as the L-88 was introduced and they continued for over 12 years of racing.


The L-88 option package for the Corvette was the result of years of developmental work which resulted in a factory racing option package that could be ordered from Chevrolet in a brand new Corvette. The L-88 option was only available for three brief model years from 1967 through 1969.
The L-88 Corvette was so potent, that it could not only allow the new owner or driver to win a race in local competition, but it also could propel a properly prepared Corvette to stunning finishing positions in world class International races, such as the 12 Hours of Sebring and the 24 Hours of Daytona. These racing victories with the L-88 option package, made the Corvette an overnight hit. The L-88 nomenclature became synonymous with Corvettes and with champions. Although only 216 L-88 Corvettes rolled off the St. Louis Corvette Plant assembly line during these three model years, several of them were driven directly from the factory to garages for immediate race preparations. Most of the race prepared L-88 Corvettes that competed on tracks in the United States and Europe are featured in this book, and so are the predecessors that led up to the creation of the L-88 factory racing option.

These are the Corvettes that started the legend.

Corvette Racing Legends is a 424 hardbound book which emphasizes the
development and success of the big block L-88 Chevrolet Corvette.

Corvette Racing Legends not only tells the story of the racing side of the Corvette,
but it also tells the real story of the Corvette, how and why it was developed,
how it turned into a world class sports car, and who did it. This book is a must
for all Corvette owners and enthusiasts alike.

Corvette Racing Legends contains over 500 color and black and white photos, most of
which have never been published before. These rare photos have been obtained from
the archives of collectors and enthusiasts who photographed these fantastic
L-88 Corvettes at the tracks when these Corvettes originally raced.

Original photos from tracks such as Daytona, Sebring, Le Mans,
Watkins Glen, Riverside, Road Atlanta and others will be found here.

All of the photos contained within Corvette Racing Legends are original photos from the '50s, '60s, and '70s!!

There are no photos from modern or current vintage racing
events within this book.

 

Top professional drivers and talented amateurs drove these Corvettes to
victories in some of the world’s most challenging races. The author, brings these events
to life with carefully selected photographs and well researched narratives to create
this beautiful Corvette racing history book.

Thank you for visiting my site.

I want to bring something to your attention.
My book went global in 2008 and since then many people and
organizations have been using my name and my book
for promotional purposes with their L-88 Corvettes.
I started buying, restoring and selling Corvettes back in the 70s
and this hobby has grown to an unexpected level.


The use of my name and/or any parts of my book are not allowed
and will not be tolerated for the display, promotion, description,
sale and services of any kind without my prior approval.

I assisted the owner of the Rebel Corvette which sold at Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Collector Car Auction January 18th, 2014 for a new racing Corvette record of $2.86 Million dollars. This L88 Corvette was one of a few competition L88 Corvettes that I thoroughly researched and selected to feature in my L88 book: Corvette Racing Legends.

This sale marks three years in a row that Dr. Pete has been involved with record setting auction sales!
