   Corvettes Down Under Car Club - Corvette Classic
   19th July 2015 - Pelican Park, Clontarf

 

 


Congratulations and a big thank you to the organising committee, sponsors, club members and participants for helping make the 2015 Corvette Classic a fantastic celebration of the Corvette.  An excellent location this year and a great turn-out to make the day complete.

 We had 25 of our Corvettes along in support making a total of approximately 70 cars on display for the day.

Our first group met at the Hyperdome and cruised north to meet the second contingent at Nudgee.  We numbered 14 by this stage but one car suffered a broken clutch linkage at Nudgee and was unable to take further part in the activities.  A couple of us remained with the broken Vette until it was clear there would be no easy fix and the tilt tray was called before joining the group in Pelican Park on the waterfront at Clontarf.

All parked together and caught up with a couple of early bird attendees before the customary catch up with our Down Under friends and a little pre-judging detailing.  Grey clouds threatened showers a few times but the breeze soon blew them away to reveal a nice warm day.

Judging was carried out smoothly but there was a little confusion with Bob's number, seems a mystery person enjoyed swapping the judging reference with other cars.  All was finally done and we managed quite a number of trophies across a good range of models and mods.  I'll post the results when received.

Everyone enjoyed a relaxing day catching up, wood fired pizzas, gourmet hot dogs and fresh coffee.

Thanks again to all who contributed to making the day such a success.  I loved catching up with old friends to share our common passion.

Special thanks to Con Milos and Aaron O'Reilly for sharing their event photos for all of us to enjoy.
