Video: The NCM Utilizes R/C Bobcats to Fill in The Sinkhole

The sinkhole at the National Corvette Museum is well underway in regards to it being repaired. All of the supports have been put into place along with any the bracing and even some of the necessary hardware in order to have a visitor-controlled video camera to view the inside of the sinkhole.

We may be well engrained within the car culture, but we are certainly not educated in the world of engineering and industrial construction. That being said, we are unsure whether safety is the motivating factor for the remote controlled Bobcats or there is some other reasoning.

While we would have to imagine driving a R/C Bobcat loses a bit of its luster in time, especially compared to driving your favorite 1/8 scale race car, it certainly beats the rough ride and noise of operating one in the traditional fashion. Additionally we are in favor of any technology which effectively increases the safety for those at the job site.

Ultimately, we are happy to see the NCM getting a few steps closer to a full reopening or their facility. We are really looking forward to the museum getting back in full swing, as well as seeing what the final display will look like that documents the disaster.
