GM Executive Crashes Corvette on National Television (w/ Video)


Just a few days after Chevrolet Philippines confirmed that they’re bringing in a version of the Corvette supercar (likely the Stingray), one GM’s top executives embarrassingly reminded everyone how tricky that car could be.

The 2018 Detroit Grand Prix was delayed a full 27 minutes after the pace car, a 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 driven by General Motors’ executive vice-president of global product development Mark Reuss crashed as it exited the pits.

On his personal Facebook page, Reuss wrote:
“I have driven this course many many many times. I have paced this race in the wet, cold, hot, and calm. On Z06's, Grand Sports, and other things. It is never a casual thing for me, but an honor to be asked. 
“Today I let down my friends, my family, Indycar, our city and my company. Sorry does not describe it. I want to thank our engineers for providing me the safety I know is the best in the world.”
Let this be a lesson that anyone, even a high-ranking executive from Chevrolet with a genuine love for cars may have a hard time taming the Corvette.

  4. This is why those overpowered cars aren't that fun to drive especially here unless you can tame that power. If you cannot tame that power, it will leave you with a gaz guzzling noisy bulky car that you miserably can't enjoy, lol.

    1. I agree. It's better to stick to slow cars in the Philippines such as Toyota Rush, Mitsubishi Mirage, Honda City, Hyundai Accent, Mazda 3, Suzuki Vitara and etc... Less accident. Traffic din naman.
