With the recent success of Chevy‘s Corvette Racing series and the new “America Still Builds Rockets” Corvette commercial, the marketing folks at GM are going full swing to promote the ‘Vette.

The latest effort is equally awesome, with GM inviting F1-turned NASCAR driver Juan Pablo Montoya out to the company’s Milford Proving Grounds to test out the new Chevy Cruze, the Camaro and, of course, the Corvette ZR1.

Montoya certainly seems to enjoy himself (and who wouldn’t behind the wheel of a ZR1).

But enough chit chat. Check out the tire-shredding, sideways sliding video after the jump:

    Wow-if you want to do this you can-just buy a ZR-1 and go to Spring Mountain. Then go to the track nearest where you live. This is the way it sounds – but, driving it is better. Jaun took it to the edge-with a bit of practice he would eliminate all that wheel spin and slides. I would have been laughing too if I were in the right seat with him-what fun.

    Why would GM choose a foreigner to drive the Great AMERICAN Sports car ???

    Oh well, so many jobs are being sent out of the U.S., no sense to buy American, I guess I should sell my Vette and buy a Hyundai.
