GM Australia and New Zealand have announced a special public viewing of the new C8 Corvette at Mount Panorama. 

To mark the first-time arrival of GMSV at Bathurst, a special public viewing opportunity of the new right-hand-drive C8 has been arranged at the National Motor Racing Museum for the week of the Repco Bathurst 1000.

The GMSV display trackside will feature a Silverado LTZ Premium, LT Trail Boss and the biggest Chevrolet available for sale in Australia and New Zealand, the Heavy Duty LTZ Premium.

One of the Silverados will be set up to demonstrate its ‘invisible trailer’ feature, which uses two strategically mounted cameras, to make the item being towed disappear from view.

Different models from GMSV will also be involved in on-track activations during the weekend and appearances around Bathurst.

"It’s fantastic to finally be able to showcase our entire range to Corvette and Silverado fans," said Joanne Stogiannis, Director of GMSV Australia and New Zealand.

"We couldn’t think of a better opportunity to take the show on the road for our first-ever trip to Bathurst and this great race.

"This trip doubles as the public debut of the new Chevrolet Silverado Heavy Duty LTZ Premium and is the first occasion all three right-hand-drive C8 Corvettes in Australia, a Torch Red 3LT Convertible and two 3LT Coupe - one in Rapid Blue and the other Hypersonic Grey - will be out and about at a major event together.

"We’re hugely excited to be part of the action and look forward to finally being able to connect enthusiasts with a selection of the very finest models from the GM portfolio."

For fans wanting to attend the public viewing, an entry fee to National Motor Racing Museum will apply.

Supercars will hit the track on Thursday for Practice 1 at 10:00am AEDT. Click here to view the track schedule.

Every session of the event will be broadcast live on Foxtel (Fox Sports 503) and streamed on Kayo.

The Seven Network will provide live free to air coverage of the event. Tickets for the event are on sale now.
