Pratt & Miller certification for the No. 3 Corvette C7.R factory race car

It’s too bad that the No. 3 Corvette C7.R doesn’t find a parking spot in the National Corvette Museum.

It could be be an impressive exhibit for Corvette racing fans to see and the NCM could occasionally take it out for a lap or two at the NCM Motorsports Park during track events.

Number 3 Corvette C7.R Factory Race CarBeing the occasional weekend track monster that I am, if I had the money, I’d be damn proud to scoop up this incredible icon of Corvette Racing history.  Alas, it’s just not in the cards for me, but it could be yours with the right bid!
