Celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Callaway Corvettes at Corvettes at Carlisle

Celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Callaway Corvettes at Corvettes at Carlisle


Corvettes at Carlisle is always a great event for enthusiasts.

This year it’ll be even more special as Callaway Corvettes will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of RPO B2K and the 25th anniversary of the Callaway Speedster, with an amazing collection of other Callaway Corvettes from 1987 to 2017 slated to be on hand.

The 2017 Corvettes at Carlisle will be held Aug. 24-27 at the Carlisle Pa. Fairgrounds.

If you have a Callaway Corvette, don’t miss this big event, but you need to hurry as the reunion is expected to fill up quickly, organizers say.

Be a part of the Callaway Corvette Reunion with a special Callaway parking area and an invitational display under a special display tent.

To guarantee parking with the 30th Anniversary Reunion, you need to register prior to July 24 and select the “Callaway Owners Group” as your club affiliation. Reserved parking with the group is only available through pre-registration. Space is limited.

Each Callaway participant will get a commemorative memento, but you have to pre-register under Callaway Owners Group Parking to receive it.

All Callaway Corvette owners are encouraged to attend and be a part of the celebration that will honor the camaraderie and history of Callaway ownership. For more information, contact Jodi Morrison.

Corvettes at Carlisle is billed as the world’s largest all-Corvette-themed weekend. Register your Corvette today or purchase tickets for single day or weekend access via www.CarlisleEvents.com.

But what about those cars, trucks, vehicles and other types of insurance policies that most of us need? Now you have a choice there as well!

Saturday Morning Corvette Comic: Where's Your Festive Spirit?


Jr didn’t need to paint his dad’s Corvette red, white and blue for the car to be patriotic on the Fourth of July. The Corvette already represents many of the ideals that made this country great – freedom, independence and a can-do spirit.

Personally, I also enjoy the car’s ability to vanquish all adversaries (both foreign or domestic)!

Many Corvette Racing fans, this one included, weren’t following the team in the early days and so many of the stories that are from that time period are not only entertaining, but show how the team evolved to the powerhouse in GT racing that they are today.

[VIDEO] CorvetteBlogger Hits the Brickyard for the Driving Events at Bloomington Gold


When the Bloomington Gold show moved to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in 2015 it opened up an entirely new aspect of the show – the ability to drive or ride along in a Corvette on the iconic Indy speedway. The additional driving opportunities bolstered the precedent set several years earlier when the Gold Autocross was added to the event docket.

GoldSpeed allows show attendees to ride along in a new Corvette on the inner portion of the IMS road course with a professional driver. This year the event was run by Chevrolet using 2017 Corvette Grand Sports. After driving one of several other Chevrolet cars, patrons made their way over to the Gold Speed tent. There they signed their lives away on the waiver, were fitted with a helmet, and then strapped into a HANS device. Next it was over to one of the Grand Sports for a high speed lap. The lap began with a full throttle straight run down to a sweeping left hand turn, hard on the brakes, then into a sharp right and back down the straight to the start/finish line. On our lap we topped out a 113 mph on the start straight and hit triple digits again on the way back.

GoldLaps allow patrons to drive their own Corvettes on the oval track for two laps. Pace cars at the front and back of each group kept things to “cruising speeds” but that doesn’t mean we can’t cruise at three-digit speeds! Over the course of the weekend, Team CorvetteBlogger had 3 chances to lap the speedway in 3 different generations of Corvette. Thursday we toured in a wild 1967 restomodded convertible and Saturday we took to the track in a 2017 Collector Edition Grand Sport convertible and C6 coupe.

Check out our GoldSpeed and GoldLaps at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway:


Corvette enthusiasts were also able to hit the Gold Autocross track and we saw many Corvette owners either taking their own Corvettes through the course or riding along with Autocross champion Danny Popp. Here’s video of a couple of autocrossers doing their thing:
