2017 Punkin Chunkin Corvette Fall Blast Show 10/8/2017
The 4C once again put on another great Corvette Fall Blast Car Show at this year's Punkin Chunkin Event held on 10/08/17. The weather was fantastic and we had a great turn out of 43 Corvettes for our People's Choice judged event. We tripled the number of participants and we once again gave out awards for each generation of Corvette from C1 to C7. Congrats to our club, the show winners, our sponsors, and a BIG thanks to all our members who worked and participated with a shared vision of success to make this a great event. Watch the short version of the video above, composed and arranged by Les Rhoades, and click on the video below for the longer, director's cut.

The race is a standing start, head-to-head, one lap race against one other participant. The winner moves on the next round and the loser leaves the track.

Drone Flyover of 4C Formation 05/13/2017
The 4Cs celebrated our 2nd anniversary in style by kicking off the party with a car show to display our beautiful Corvettes, then enjoyed each other's company and comradery with a good, old-fashioned barbecue. The weather was fantastic and we could not have asked for a more beautiful day. After the morning's car show and lunch celebration, we headed out to the Arapahoe Horse Park grounds for some aerial acrobatics. Thanks to Les, who meticulously planned and designed the configuration to be formed, and with some help from Jack to mark the ground indicating where everyone should park, the club members parked their cars in a "4C" formation. Many thanks to one of our newer members, John Sheeley, who deftly and expertly piloted his drone above our cars to capture the video above.
High Plains Raceway Track Day 04/02/2017
The 4Cs headed out to the Emich VW/Chevy Track Day on April 2, 2017 to have some speed-limit legal, safe fun on the track. There was a winter storm that was supposed to dump some snow on the area Friday night into Saturday, so there was some apprehension as to what the track conditions would be like come Sunday. As luck would have it, the snowy weather forecast did not pan out and you can see from the video above that we had gorgeous sunshine and around 60 degree temps on track day. Les and Mark had a blast taking their Vettes to the track to show the other racers what fantastic cars the C7s are. Several members of the group also got to take some rides with Les and Mark to experience the thrill for themselves, even if they did not drive their own Corvettes. Thanks to Coop, Finlay, Gail, Gary, Jack, Keith (who one again took some fantastic photos), Kelly, Leo and John Parker for coming out cheering our two race drivers at the event.
