Corvette club of South Australia Inc.


With Covid still with us, we decided to bite the bullet & go ahead with Corvettes Rock the Bay. Unfortunately, the Corvette Nationals in Canberra were cancelled. This encouraged a group of Victorians from SurfCoast Corvettes, Corvettes of Melbourne & Vic Vettes to come to SA & participate. We also had 1 couple come from NSW. 11 cars drove from interstate.
It is with great thanks to Mark Andre, Rob McConnell & AJ who tirelessly spoke with GMSV to bring the new C8 to be part of our display.
We arranged a club dinner at the Watermark Hotel on the Saturday night, hosting the Victorian members along with Rob, Jodie & Joanne from GMSV, making up 50 people for the evening.
Next day the show was on! We had the GMSV C8 on display as well as a LHD racing C8 along with the concept cars of Graham Hay's C1/4, Ross's Prodigy, Ross & R4's C36. We also had the generation line up showcasing coupes & convertibles from C1 through to C7.
We had 98 magnificent Corvettes on display. Rave On, the band, kept the music flowing throughout the day.

Entrant's Choice:- 1st John Ciccarello '68
2nd A J Martin '54
3rd Rob McConnell '71
Public Choice:- 1st Graham Hay C1/4
2nd Geoff Grant '74

After the day wound up & everything was packed away, some of the helpers & a few of the Victorians came back to our house for a casual catch up with drinks & pizza as a thanks & farewell to our over-border friends, until we see them next time.
Lyn & I would like to thank our Sub Committee of Ruth, Stuart, Catherine who helped throughout the year & on the day. We also thank all of the helpers who turned up early to help set up & stayed back to pack up. We also had helpers in the tents to assist with Merchandise & Raffle sales. Without your help, the day would not happen! You all contributed to the success of the event.
We also would like to thank our major sponsors:- Federation of Historic Motoring Cars & Shannons.
Our stall holders "Pictures & More", "CarChem" provided us with merchandise to use as raffle prizes.
Stir Express turn up each year to help kick start the day with nice coffees.

Huge thank you to everyone who turned up on the day or contributed in some way,
Pete & Lyn
