The Original 1957 Chevrolet Corvette Super Sport Racer (SSR) 

The Car Our Club Was Named After 

57_ssr

The Chevrolet Corvette 'SS' was an experimental magnesium-bodied car and set a New Lap Record at Sebring, Florida, in 1957. But success at Sebring for this stunning racer was unfortunately short lived. Although the SS was extremely fast for its day (top recorded speed of 183 mph), a suspension problem forced it to retire from the race after 23 laps in the Sebring 12-Hour race. Juan Manuel Fangio, the winner at Sebring in 1957, was impressed enough with the car to test the SS under practice conditions. The results was astonishing.
Fangio completed a full lap a full 3:27.4 seconds faster in a car he had never driven before than other drivers could in cars they were experienced driving.General Motors was enthusiastic about the potential of the SS based on results from practice and lap speeds. Shortly thereafter, the Automobile Manufacturers Association announced its opposition to factory involvement in motorsports and the SS project was shelved, although the SS was resurrected long enough to lap Daytona International Speedway at 155 mph during opening-day ceremonies in 1959(The birth year of our club).It has served as the forerunner of many Corvette sports/racing models
