OCT. 8TH AND OCT 9TH ---- www.lggpr.org/
The 2016 event will be a two-day event to be enjoyed with family and friends; where you will see amazing cars and maybe meet someone new. This year there will be events to suit all tastes, including the famous track event where men and women with steel nerves go screaming by in their pride and joys, with engines making music to chill the nerves.
Even though this year is a two-day event, your level of participation remains flexible with options that include the car show, the autocross event, the Corvette Extravaganza, and the high speed track event. And did we mention entertainment Saturday evening in downtown Garnett? You don’t have to drive your car at speed to enjoy the day. Events on each day will remain independent – you don’t need to attend both days.
The 2016 event will be celebrating an American classic car, the Corvette. A Corvette Extravaganza will take place on the weekend and it is expected that several spectacular cars from multiple states will be in attendance.
