“The 3,000 hours of work we put into this car does not seem so bad anymore,” said Craig Morrison of Art Morrison Enterprises. “The awards are a wonderful recognition for all the hard work and all the long days.”

The winner was announced at The Joint in the Hard Rock Hotel where the band Foreigner rocked the house until the wee hours of the morning. “We were there and my son Craig told me we won,” said Art Morrison. “The announcer said stop at the K&N Booth at SEMA to see the winning car and it just went over my head. It was overwhelming and humbling at the same time.”

The Grand Turismo Awards honor five different categories, including “Best Domestic,” “Best European,” “Best Hot Rod,” “Best Japanese,” and “Best Truck/SUV.” From this group Art Morrison’s Corvette won the “Best in Show” award. To qualify for The Grand Turismo Award we were up against the best of the best, said Art Morrison.

Judging for each category was based on well balanced performance, style and speed. Morrison’s Corvette will be in one of the most realistic racing simulation games for all fans of the franchise to enjoy.

“Any player of Grand Turismo will be able to drive our car on any track in the world,” said Art Morrison. “It was also great to talk with all the people that stopped by the K&N Booth at SEMA.”
