Chevy To Unveil Special Edition Corvette On January 25

It’ll debut at the Rolex 24 at Daytona race. The spot on the itinerary only shows “2019 Corvette Special Edition Announcement at the Chevrolet Experience,” and that doesn’t even hint at what makes the new model distinctive. Unveiling the vehicle at a major race could hint at some sort of motorsport-inspired connection, though.

An itinerary for the Rolex 24 at Daytona race reveals that a special edition Chevy Corvette debuts. It doesn’t provide any other details, though.

UCLA study says motorcycling reduces stress, increases alertness

funded by Harley-Davidson

On average, riding a motorcycle for 20 minutes increased participants heart rates by 11 percent and adrenaline levels by 27 percent, similar to light exercise.
Changes in the riders’ brain activity suggested an increase in alertness similar to drinking a cup of coffee.
Sensory focus was enhanced while riding, versus driving a car, meaning that riders were more alert to what was going on around them.
On the bike, many riders say they tune out anything that’s not relevant to the road. The study, which used electroencephalogram equipment to measure brain activity, seemed to validate that point.

The study, from the Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior at the University of California, Los Angeles, says results are similar to light exercise.
