Spotted in a trailer at the Monterey, California track...

Is that what we think it is? :D

"The blogosphere is blowing up this morning with word that GM has a prototype of its upcoming 2009 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 in Monterey, California for the last race of the Amercian Le Mans Series season at Laguna Seca Raceway. Even juicier is the rumor that the ZR1 will be doing demonstration laps at some point over the weekend. If that's the case, it should be quite a show, as the ZR1 is slated to produce some 650 horsepower."

I just got off the phone with my mom. At this moment, my parents are in the Corvette tent at Laguna Seca. Mom has been instructed to look for the Zr-1 and has both digital and film cameras at the ready.

I officially appoint your parents as photographers for the weekend. :lol:
We'll see what happens. :D

I told my mom to "look for a Corvette with bra-type stuff covering a bubble hood." My parents are pretty Corvette savy so I'm pretty sure we won't end up with a bunch of Panoz pics. :lol:

I also told her the magazines would pay money for a good spy shot so she's got some incentive. ;)
I'm going to go out on a limb and say that the hood decoration is more to hide the more pronounced hump in the hood and less of an indication of an actual production paint scheme.

All of the black on that car (roof, hood bubble, behind the front wheel, etc.) is camo.
