2007 Chevrolet Rev It Up Competititon

This summer, Chevrolet will be offering one of the coolest opportunities we’ve ever seen a large manufacturer create for enthusiasts. And, six of those lucky car lovers will walk away with a free trip to the Bondurant Driving School. One will walk-er, drive-away in a brand new Corvette. For a small entry fee of $25 (spectators get in for free) Chevy will put anyone who registers behind the seat of a Cobalt SS to race. The finalists will then head back out in a Corvette. Other events include enduro karting, braking tests in the Impala SS and Trailblazer SS, and rides with a professional driver in the 505-hp Corvette Z06. We’d go just for that last one.
