Corvette Museum ‘1-Lap Tour’ Raises Funds for Trooper Island Camp

museum motion KSPBOWLING GREEN, KY (12/12/12) – It’s not every day that you see a corvette chasing a Kentucky State Police cruiser, but that is exactly what happened this month as part of a unique fundraiser developed by the Corvette Museum. The “1-Lap of Kentucky” programs are popular touring events that quickly sell out to Corvette enthusiasts. As a part of the National Corvette Museum in Motion program, the 1-Lap tour raises money for both the Museum and Trooper Island, a Kentucky State Police non-profit camp for underprivileged children.
 
“This is our third year of doing the Corvette Tour” says Kentucky State Police Commissioner Rodney Brewer. “Each year we have visited a different region of the Commonwealth. We’re proud of the Bluegrass and enjoy showing it off to visitors.”

Previous tours have visited the Land Between the Lakes and Owensboro, the Bourbon Trail and Horse Country, and most recently explored eastern Kentucky for a trip through the mining camps, Trooper Island and the Kentucky Artisan Center in Berea. “We’re planning three tours next year,” says Museum Events Manager Roc Linkov. “From this unique partnership we get to have a meaningful and fun event that provides underprivileged children with a fun and meaningful event of their own. That is a great thing.”

On Wednesday, December 5, 2012 Roc Linkov presented a $11,000 check for Trooper Island Camp to Kentucky State Police Commissioner Rodney Brewer. In turn, Trooper Island Camp Director, Sgt. Craig Sutton presented Museum Executive Director Wendell Strode and Museum Events Associate Karen Renfrow with a plaque from the KSP in honor of the NCM's participation in this worthwhile effort.
 
While the event typically involves a large number of Corvettes, all makes and models of vehicles are welcome. Next year's event will highlight Kentucky's "Only One" attractions... all the great places and things Kentucky has that exist nowhere else in the world. To learn more about next years’ 1-Lap of Kentucky event, visit the Museum's website at http://www.corvettemuseum.org/registration/one-lap/info.shtml. Registration for the tours will open late spring 2013.
