Get Revved Up at Hot Springs Corvette Weekend 2016

March 18th, 2016 by Corey A. Edwards

Hot Springs Corvette Weekend 2016The 18th annual Hot Springs Corvette Weekend is expected to bring upwards of 500 of the classic, American sports cars to Hot Springs, April 21st through the 23rd, 2016. If you’re a Corvette fan, you won’t want to miss this event!

The Chevrolet Corvette is arguably the most iconic and popular of all American sports cars ever made. Since they first went on sale in 1953, the nearly 2 million Corvettes have been sold. The Corvette is so popular that, in recent years, nearly one third of all sports car sales in the US have been Corvettes!

The 18th Hot Springs Corvette Weekend reflects this fact with well over 1,000 Corvette owners expected to attend. Participants from fourteen states around the US have already registered, with more expected. They won’t be alone, either, with at least twice as many Corvette enthusiasts who can only wish they were owners but are able to gain some vicarious satisfaction by attending such an event where, for three days at least, they can be up to their eyeballs in the objects of their affection.

More than just a grouping of privately owned Corvettes, the Hot Springs Corvette Weekend includes a Valve Cover Race, Scenic Road Tour, parade, vendors, silent auction, prize drawings, and more:
