What is the Mini Corvette Challenge?


The Mini Corvette Challenge brings awareness to Junior Achievement of South Central Kentucky.

Originating locally in 1995, the Mini Corvette Challenge is a fundraising and awareness-building event for Junior Achievement of South Central Kentucky. The race has been held at various locations in Bowling Green, KY over the 20+ years since it began. In 2017, the Knicely Conference Center parking lot was transformed into a mini-race track. Local businesses raced with their custom-tooled and detailed mini Corvette go-carts. What better place to hold a mini Corvette go-cart race than in Vette City itself, Bowling Green, Kentucky?

This was Sublime Media Group’s first year attending the Mini Corvette Challenge. Our team spent the day shooting footage of the event. Even though we didn’t race this year, we had a blast interacting with racers. Local businesses from all over south central Kentucky took part in the race.
