Corvette Summer 2018 - RLD Series Event.

The American Classic and true slice of Americana, since the early 1950's this car has been the dream of many...and to this still is. This Series Event is dedicated to that part of the American Dream....rolling down the open road of an American Summer with that V8 taking you where your heart desires.

The series will start on Memorial Day Weekend...and will finish on Labor Day Weekend. So, that is the beginning and end of summer. In June the Vettes will hit RI and July they hit Utah and August they roar into Fla(and hopefully another track TBD) before they return to NC and a date with a nasty road course to finish up and claim a Champion.

The Corvettes would be 1953 to 1982...Generations 1-3 of the Corvette.

Scoring and Winning

 The winning Corvette for each individual race will get pub and some points, racers will get 1pt per win, 1pt for making the Finals/Championship race per track race. The points will be cumulative throughout the Series to determine our overall Champion. The cars will have to win two(2) in a row to advance on each track(the usual RLD format for victory).


 Just make weight and follow the rules...repairs if needed are the discretion of the Host...unless we are talking FUBAR, then that car would be out of the Series.

I was looking around for other Vettes, and came across this's amazing how much they've change the scale on Hot Wheels since '68

The HW today are closer to 1/64 than early HW for sure
