When OnStar Emergency Calls You On The Track Because They Thought You Crashed
December 28th, 2018
Race car driver Andy Pilgrim has long been driving C5 Corvettes for Chevy for years before later moving on to CTS-Vs for the Cadillac factory team. So he's been around the track a few times. However, he's never had GM's OnStar service call him checking to see if he wrecked.
Automobile reports that Pilgrim was driving a 2019 Corvette ZR1 at NCM Motorsports Park in Bowling Green, Kentucky when during the course of just over a lap three different OnStar representatives got on the phone with him to see if he’s all right. Each time, he assures them that, yes, he’s fine, just having fun on the track.
Chevy insisted that it in all its miles of ZR1 track testing, it has only heard of this scenario when Pilgrim is the driver behind the wheel, and only when he’s at the NCM track.
