Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport Will Pace the 2017 Indianapolis 500

The 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport will be the official pace car for the 101st Indianapolis 500. The Corvette is no stranger to pace car duties at the fabled track. It has paced the race 14 times since 1978.

“Chevrolet is proud to once again pace the Indianapolis 500,” said Steve Majoros, marketing director for Cars and Crossovers. “The Corvette Grand Sport’s performance capability and motorsports heritage make it the perfect choice to pace the Greatest Spectacle in Racing.”

This year’s pace car is white with blue striping with red and blue Indy 500 lettering. With 460 horsepower under the hood, this sleek coupe should have no problem taking on pace car duties.

“Chevrolet and Indianapolis are inextricably linked, sharing one of the longest racing heritages in all of motorsports,” said J. Douglas Boles, president of Indianapolis Motor Speedway. “We are proud of the longstanding relationship between Chevrolet and the Speedway and we love having the Corvette Grand Sport lead the 500 field to the green flag.”

You can see the Corvette Grand Sport pace the race on Sunday, May 28th.
