It started with a small block Chevrolet engine back in 1956, and it progressed through the Corvette SS, Sting Ray racer, the Z06 Sting Ray and the Grand Sport prototypes. These Corvettes would eventually lead to the release of the L-88 competition engine option and its required option package. The engine which would power the Corvette to many International victories.

The L-88 option package for the Corvette was the result of years of developmental work. The result was a factory racing option package that could be ordered from Chevrolet in a brand new Corvette. The L88 option was only available for three brief model years from 1967 through 1969. The L88 Corvette was so potent, that it could allow the new owner or driver to win a race in local competition. It also could also propel a properly prepared Corvette to stunning finishing positions in world class International races, such as the 12 Hours of Sebring and the 24 Hours of Daytona. These racing victories with the L-88 option package, made the Corvette an overnight hit. The L88 nomenclature became synonymous with Corvettes and with champions. Although only 216 L88 Corvettes rolled off the St. Louis Corvette Plant assembly line during these three model years, several of them were driven directly from the factory to garages for immediate race preparations. Most of the race prepared L-88 Corvettes that competed on tracks in the United States and Europe are featured in this book. Some of the predecessors that led up to the creation of the L88 factory racing option are covered as well.
This Corvette Racing book not only tells the story of the racing side of the Corvette, but it also tells the real story of the Corvette. It shows and tells how and why it was developed.
