Harlan Charles & Tadge Juechter Hold Court at NCM’s Latest Michelin Bash Event: 2018 Recap & 2019 Preview
Dateline: 5.2.19 – The National Corvette Museum hosted their three-day annual Michelin NCM Bash from April 26 to April 28. Corvette product manager Harlan Charles and Corvette chief engineer Tadge Juechter delivered a 1-hour and 47-minute presentation recap of the 2018 season and a preview of what’s in store for 2019.
The event also included racing seminars, an update on the 1962 sinkhole Corvette, and using the C7’s navigation system. Chevrolet wants Corvette fans well informed and C7 owners completely up to speed with their car’s capabilities.
Special guests included former Bowling Green plant manager Wil Cooksey and early generation Corvette restoration expert, Kevin Mackay.
FYI, you can read my 2013 interview with Wil Cooksey in the November 2017 and January 2018 issue of Vette Vues; and my Kevin Mackay 2013 interview in the May 2018 and June 2018 issue of Vette Vues.
For just $99, attendees at the 2018 Bash could get a full day of track time in 20-minute intervals. And lastly, Adam Boca and Corvete Racing Team Manager Doug Fehan hosted a live auction. With a full pallet of 2018 and 2019 Corvettes, including the awesome new ZR1, plus the attendee’s rides, there was plenty of plastic-fantastic eye candy! – Scott
