Test Driver In New 2020 C8 Almost Takes Out Group of Motorcyclists
It was a close call for this group of motorcyclists somewhere in the outskirts of Las Vegas. During the first mass press drive of the mid-engine 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 there are journalists everywhere. So even on virtually closed roads, something dangerous could happen as everyone tried to get their first shot.
Three motorcyclists were following the C8 Corvette from a safe distance somewhere along Route 167/Northshore road at around 75 mph. For some reason, the driver decides to come to a complete stop in the middle of the road. It’s speculated that the C8 driver was attempting to make a U-turn.
Naturally, that forces the bikers to brake down from highway speeds to a virtual stop in about three seconds.
It’s unclear who’s behind the wheel of the Corvette, whether it be a GM employee, someone with the media, or otherwise and if they realize what a close call it was.
