The 1st Annual Turn - Key National Event is June 20 - 22, 2014
At The Madison County Fairgrounds in London, Ohio
This Years Featured Speaker is Peter Brock
American Designer, Writer, Photographer, Instructor, Story Teller

Peter Brock has been involved with competition, racing cars and photography since he went to his first road race at Pebble Beach in 1952. “Phil Hill was driving 2 Jr. a wild MG TC special with a supercharged V8 60 flathead engine and I was hooked for life. It was the perfect mechanical amalgam of hot rodding, which was the focus of my life at that young age, and the whole new sport of road racing, which was just coming into its own here after WW II”, Brock explains. As he was still too young for a racing driver’s license then, he hung out with the guys who were building the fastest cars and took pictures; lots of them. “It was a great education.”

To this day, Brock spends most of his time writing and photographing the sport he loves. He has recently completed the historically significant book: Corvette Sting Ray: Genesis of an American Icon. As a young designer at GM in 1957, VP of GM Design Bill Mitchell chose Brock’s sketch as the direction GM would take for the split window Corvette. With GM’s support, Brock tells the inside story of how the car came to be with more than 160 photos and more than 20 of his original sketches that have never seen publicly before. The book recently received the highest honor possible from the Motor Press Guild, the Dean Batchelor award for best automotive journalism across all categories (books, photography, articles & film).
