'The Quest' is the acclaimed feature-length documentary about the Corvettes that raced at the legendary 24 Hours of LeMans Endurance Race for the first time in 1960.
'The Quest' re-visits the 1960 race through color film shot at the time. It also re-creates what happened to each of the four Corvettes after they disappeared for decades. Never before seen footage, photos and interviews help bring this amazing story to life.
As collectors and restorers recognized the historical importance of the former racing Corvettes, they went looking for them. Chip Miller, renowned collector and co-founder of Corvettes at Carlisle, set a goal of finding and acquiring the #3 class-winning 1960 Corvette...with a dream of restoring it and taking it back to LeMans in 2010, with John Fitch, one of its original drivers.
Within only a few years of completing his dream, Chip Miller died from an extremely rare disease called amyloidosis. His goal was cut short in 2004. But his son, Lance, picked up Chip's quest and took the car and its driver back to LeMans in June of 2010...marking 50 years of Corvette Racing at LeMans...and fulfilling his late father's dream.
A heart-warming story of visions cut short, obstacles to success and a son's love of his father, 'The Quest' has something for everyone...whether hard core car enthusiast or someone who just loves a good story.
The film has a running length of 84 minutes. DVDs may be available for purchase that evening. Details will be forthcoming closer to the event.
A portion of each ticket sale will go to the Chip Miller Charitable Foundation for their efforts in aiding research and awareness of amyloidosis...the rare disease that took Chip Miller's life. (www.chipmiller.org)
