It Is A Law!

Congratulations to everyone in SD involved in the car hobby. It’s now legal to drive certain vehicles without a front license plate.
HB 1164 to allow a single license plate for special interest vehicles was signed into law by Governor Dennis Daugaard on March 7. Thank you to everyone who helped with this effort. It was a team effort of car enthusiasts who own and drive street rods, customized cars, collector cars, sports cars, or muscle cars. Weather your contribution was large or small, financial, time, contacting legislators, sending e-mails or testifying in Pierre, it helped improve the car hobby for many. A large majority of legislators heard your voice, own cars like ours and supported our bill. After two committee hearings and votes on both floors there was only one “no” vote. With this type of support I do believe future improvements can be made for all special interest plates. We do plan to keep the United Car Council of SD active.

2017 CORVETTE GRAND SPORT HAS RACING ROOTS

2017 CORVETTE GRAND SPORT HAS RACING ROOTS

A ‘purist’ model that leverages a half-century legacy of motorsports success

  • Lightweight architecture and track-honed aerodynamics
  • An engine offering an estimated 1.05g in cornering capability and up to 1.2g with the available Z07 package
  • Coupe and convertible available this summer in U.S. and fall in Europe  
  • Grand Sport Collector Edition available later in model year

GENEVA – With Corvette Racing in its DNA, the all-new 2017 Corvette Grand Sport is a pure expression of the car’s motorsports-bred pedigree. It was introduced today at the Geneva International Motor Show.

Like the 2015 Le Mans-winning Corvette C7.R GTE Pro race car, the new Grand Sport combines a lightweight architecture, a track-honed aerodynamics package, Michelin tires and a naturally aspirated engine.

The 2017 Corvette Grand Sport offers an estimated 1.05g in cornering capability – and up to 1.2g with the available Z07 package.

Heritage-inspired design cues and exclusive features acknowledge the historic Grand Sport legacy, established in 1963 to take on the world’s best sports cars. Only five were built before a corporate decision suspending direct motorsports involvement ended the project.

“Racing has been part of Corvette’s essence for more than 50 years and that track experience has helped us build better, more capable cars,” said Mark Reuss, executive vice president of Global Product Development and Global Purchasing and Supply Chain. “The global acclaim for the seventh-generation Corvette validates that direct link and the 2017 Grand Sport takes its track-bred technology to a new, exciting threshold.”

The Corvette Grand Sport coupe and convertible go on sale this summer in the U.S. and in the fall in Europe.
