VCC’s Scott Spears attended this event and provided the following report:

I had the best time!! Everyone there was so friendly. They treated me like family.  I went there alone and I met some very nice people.  I learned a lot about how to drive my 1992 Corvette.  It was really great to be able to drive fast and not worry about getting a ticket. The classroom training and having an instructor in the car with me was priceless.There were GM representatives there.  They brought 3 prototype 2014 Stingrays.  It breaks my heart that those 3 cars will be crushed and never released.  I was allowed to sit in the blue one. I will be planning another vacation to VIR for HPDE next year.  If you can make this event you should!  It was really phenomenal.

Corvette Club of Richmond 17th Round Up

Report and photos provided by Dennis Newton

A little after 8 am on June 1, a caravan of VCC corvettes, complete with walkie talkies, left the Shell Station parking lot on Rt 460 just east of Farwell Airport. The destination was the Corvette Club of Richmond (CCR) 17th Corvette Round-Up at the Iron Bridge Sport Park in Chester, VA.

 After a pleasant cruise, the caravan arrived and received a warm and friendly welcome by the CCR Round-Up event staff.  Caravan members parked by generation and set up their canopies and bag chairs.  Then it was time to meet other event participants to share corvette stories and to try out the the park snack shop, go-carts, driving range, and miniature golf.

 When time came to announce awards, our VCC member Brandon Short won 3rd place in the C-4 class.

Bash At the National Corvette Museum Report

Photos and report provided by Robert Anderson,  NCM Ambassador

The 2013 Bash at the National Corvette Museum was a huge success. There were approx 1,500 participants and over $150,000 was raised for the Museum and future Motorsports Park. The first shovel goes in the ground for the Motorsports Park on June 28th.

In these pictures you will see the new C7′s, the ceremonies at the Friday night Winners Circle Program (Wendell Strode loves to show off my tattoo), in the restaurant is our Star City friends and our very own JW Burton and other friends from Northern Virginia to Alabama to Michigan . One very special picture shows me on a bench talking to a friend I have made over the years from Wilmington NC that served four tours of duty in Vietnam. There are many things to do and see at the museum, in one picture I am showing JW Burton a demo on how light the C6 ZO6 frame is. Also you can see that the museum even has a place you you to wash your Corvette once you arrive.
During the Winners Circle Friday Night Ceremony people and clubs were mentioned that gave $1,000 or more to include them in the Winners Circle. The Virginia Corvette Club was once again included because of the clubs donation. It was as always GREATLY appreciated. The Museum and the people that support it are the ones responsible for keeping the Corvette dream alive.

Cruise Me Out To The Ballgame Results

Report and photos provided by Dennis Newton

Virginia Corvette Club hosted the Star City Corvette Club at the Lynchburg Hillcats vs Salem Red Sox game. We had over twenty ballgame enthusiasts cruise to the game in Corvettes (12 corvettes-21 adults and 4 kids from Star City Corvette Club and The Virginia Corvette Club) The Red Sox won, but we had people cheering for both teams. We were served hamburgers and hotdogs. We had great seats in the ballpark picnic area along the first base line but we did have jump out of the way of foul balls!
