From Bonhams:
By this time, the end of the 1950s, Corvettes had begun to establish an enviable competition record for the marque. Corvette Chief Engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov was a big fan of auto racing and it was he that was responsible for unlocking the car’s innate potential and development it into a genuine race-winner. These racing successes repaid Chevrolet’s investment with interest: Corvette sales improved significantly, ensuring the car’s survival and enabling it to go on to become the world’s best-selling and longest-lived sports car.
