The Andy Pilgrim Driving Experience

Spend a day with Corvette Hall of Fame Inductee and Pro Racer, Andy Pilgrim! This 1-day program has been hand crafted by Andy and includes autocross runs and laps on track driving the C8 Corvette with 1-on-1 feedback from the Pro himself.

The day will begin with breakfast in the Holley Control Tower alongside Andy Pilgrim. Next, participants will strap into the driver’s seat and grip the unique, 2-spoke steering wheel of the C8 Corvette for timed autocross runs on a course designed by Andy that will challenge both the driver and the Corvette. There will be a brief intermission and lunch before heading out on the 3.2-mile road course, a track that Andy claims is one of the best in North America! Each participant will receive 1-on-1 feedback between each 20-minute lead/follow session totaling over an hour on track.

After the activity concludes at the track, class participants will be invited to join Andy at the National Corvette Museum for a dinner and reception. There, you’ll hear highlights and stories from Andy’s 37-year (and counting) racing career.
