Corvette Thunder 2020:
During November 2020, the "Thunder Vette Set" Corvette Club (TVS) held "Corvette Thunder" in Sierra Vista, Arizona. Originally scheduled as a two-day event, Day 2 (Auto Cross at the Sierra Vista Airport) was cancelled due to scheduling/unforeseen events at the airport. Day 1 however was a great success with our annual "People's Choice Car Show" and "Game of Life Rally." This was followed that night with a small outdoor social and awards Presentation.
The car show featured Corvettes from all makes and models and also non-Corvette classics. All in attendance were also able to see two brand new 2020 C8 Corvettes (one in Elkhart Lake Blue and one in Black). What a thrill for all that were at the show.
The car show was a great success and ended up mid-day with the “Best of” car show winners being announced and presented their trophies by the "Thunder Vette Set" President, Bill Scott. The Corvette Class winners were announced and presented their trophies at the evening social which was held at/catered by the Urbano Coffee Company in Sierra Vista.
