The Petersen Automotive Museum will host two days of special events celebrating the life and accomplishments of former Chevrolet chief engineer, race driver and “Father of the Corvette” Zora Arkus-Duntov. The two-day celebration will feature several high-profile events including a VIP reception, exclusive Corvette rally event, Corvette cruise-in and a special panel discussion on the history and future of the Chevrolet Corvette.

On Saturday, July 27 at 6:30 p.m. the Sportsman VIP Night reception will feature an exclusive and unique Corvette display, along with gourmet food provided by Drago Ristorante and one-of-a-kind opportunities to network with Corvette experts and Corvette community VIPs. Attendees will also receive an exclusive Chevrolet Corvette book.

On Sunday, July 28 at 7:30 a.m., the Constellation Rally will take participants on a scenic route from Pasadena to the Petersen through the heart of Los Angeles. Three iconic Corvettes from the Petersen collection will take part in the rally, including a beautiful silver 1961 Corvette which will lead participants on the course. Also on Sunday, July 28 at 9:00 a.m. the Corvette cruise-in at the Petersen will feature a panel discussion on Zora Arkus-Duntov, featuring Harley Earl III and Doug Fehan, in addition to a historic display of Corvettes.

"The Chevrolet Corvette has earned its title as ‘America’s Sports Car’ thanks in large part to the work of Zora Arkus-Duntov,” said Petersen Automotive Museum Executive Director Terry L. Karges. “The Petersen is proud to honor Duntov’s incredible legacy, and we’re confident that this weekend will be like nothing else for any Corvette fan.”
