One of the largest single-day sporting events worldwide, the Indy 500 is announcing its pick for the 2008 pace car and driver. Two-time Indy 500 winner, Emerson Fittipaldi will keep the pace with two distinctly different Corvettes. This will mark a record 19th time that a Chevrolet has served as the official pace vehicle for the race and the 10th time that Corvette has paced the race.
To start the race, Fittipaldi will drive a concept-only ethanol-powered Corvette Z06, capable of changing colors from green, blue, gold and yellow. The second, a special edition Corvette, is designed to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the iconic 1978 Corvette Indy 500 pace car with a similar black and silver design. This version will also serve as the Indy 500 Festival associate cars that are driven around Indianapolis during the month of May.
