Corvette Summer 2018 - RLD Series Event.

https://www.redlinederby.com/media/img/48ce66a8.jpg

The Corvette....an American Classic and true slice of Americana, since the early 1950's this car has been the dream of many...and to this day...it 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 NJ....in July they hit Utah and OH...in August they roar into NC and then to Fla before they return to NC and a date with a nasty road course to finish up and claim a Champion.

One of these beauties should be able to make the race!

And, if I can get my butt in gear, I'll restore one to donate to the winner! It will be restored back to it's original glory! 

Now, I just need more hours in my week!

I was looking around for other Vettes, and came across this one...it'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 — LeagueofSpeed

Bump...

Believe it or not...the Corvettes are due at Tobacco Road in 2 months...as today is March 25th...so Corvette Summer starts in just two months. It's time to select your Vettes and get into your workshops. 

This is not one to drag your feet on...so get to work my Brethren as Corvette Summer indeed now beckons to RLD.

One of my hopefuls for the series, and 83 Hot Ones Corvette....going to try and extract the ultra thin axels, polish them and reset without bending them and add some weight.


  • Looking forward to seeing what everyone else is rolling into their workshops — LeagueofSpeed

Just for clarification is that 1 stock and 1 mod per racer or 2 stocks and/or 2 mods per racer or 2 of each per team?

Since I've got Quest Speedway up and running for...The Quest for Speed...and it will be set-up for the show, I'm going to run them again in North Carolina in early August before sending the Vettes down to Mopar Mafia in Fla ...then Mopar Mafia sends them back to me for the final race on Bootleg Run. It gives us that one more track I was looking for in the Series.

Also....it's time to get serious about your Corvettes for this Series Event.
