Two GM Employees Jailed for Racing C8 Corvettes in Bowling Green Ky.

Mark Derkatz & Alexander Thim have some pretty amazing jobs. Both are engineers for the greatest sports car in the world, Corvette. But the tempation to use the cars as intended can lead to some trouble.

Thim a computer aided engineer and Merkatz an electrical engineer were spotted in bowling Green Wednesday night racing each other in their Company owned C8 Sports Cars.

According to Kentucky State Police, a trooper stopped the 2 engineers on the evening of Wednesday, January 8, on Lovers Lane in Bowling Green, for exceeding the posted 45-mph speed limit by more than 26 mph, reckless driving, and racing motor vehicles on a public road.

During Car events police in Bowling green seem to be a little laid back in regards to playing around on the street. I guess not in January with the world watching and waiting for regular production to start February 3rd,

Police enlisted two towing companies to remove them from the scene and deposit them at a tow lot, where a police representative said the vehicles were collected the next day “by the owner,” presumably representatives of General Motors.
