Behind The Scenes
Baker’s commitment to excellence and his expertise with engines drove thousands of customers to the doors of his Wilbraham, Massachusetts, automotive shop. An article on Baker in the Nov. ’85, issue of Road & Track stated, “Ask any of his Corvette competitors who builds the best engines in the Endurance series, and the answer is always the same: Kim Baker.” It was customary at Bakeracing, which evolved from a foreign-car repair service into a state-of-the-art Corvette performance shop, to have a three-month waiting list.

Getting On Track
Kim Baker and his Bakeracing team are legendary names in the arena of production-based racing. In 1984, after numerous successes with other makes, Baker took a GT Class SCCA national championship in a showroom-stock Corvette. His legendary attention to detail is what made him a winner, and it made his cars winners, too. Baker made victory look easy, capturing numerous championships as a driver, a team owner, and a representative for tire and auto manufacturers.

Another testament to Kim Baker’s expertise with engines is that he was one of the very few outside specialists called upon to aid in the development and testing of the ZR-1’s LT5 powerplant. As far back as 1987, Baker was involved in the program, putting ZR-1 prototypes through high-speed testing at superspeedways such as Talladega, Riverside Raceway, and Mosport near Toronto, Ontario.
