As for prep I always recommend flushing brake fluid every two years or 30k miles but if you are a novice with no track experience and it’s not much beyond 2 years you can probably get away with not flushing it since this is the Shenandoah circuit and not as high speed. I would still suggest doing the flush with DOT 4 fluid if possible as that’s part of the tech inspection they do on site and it’s most likely going to be very warm that day.

November 21st at 6pm
Our NVCC Christmas Lights Rallye is a fun and easy event for everyone, even if you have never done a rallye before. We put a twist on a traditional rallye by answering questions about the holiday lights path, no directions to have to worry about getting lost. The route will guide you to the entrance of the “Bull Run Festival of Lights,” which is where the questions will begin.
We selected November 21st, the Sunday before Thanksgiving, to run the event early in the season like last year to avoid the super-sized crowds the lights get closer to the holidays. We will be running a single rallye- most correct answers win. Weather should still be good, but just in case Corvettes are not required to participate. You can run it alone or have a car full of people, it’s up to you since it’s on closed roads and very slow driving.
The route end is still TBD -but it will either be at the carnival area at the end of the lights or possibly Ciro’s pizza in Centerville- more details to come about this as I am finalizing with Bull Run the details for our group. They have not gotten word from the carnival when they will be finished setup so watch for additional emails on this. I will provide instructions at the drivers meeting the event night no matter what so everyone will know where to go. We still plan to head over for dinner at Ciro's Pizza after, as it is a great by-the-slice pizza for anyone interested in joining.
We will have 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners prizes
NOTE: Special awards will also be given such as:
Best Ugly Sweater!
So bring your Christmas spirit and have fun!
Cost to rallye: $5.00 / car
Note: Admission to Bull Run Festival of Lights is required, $30/per car if purchased in advance. You can purchase early on their website:

This year, the Governor would not allow the central site, so 17 venues were chosen that all participants could cruise into over the two days. This year’s activities appear below to give you a flavor of what is to come. Over 400 vehicles participated from all over the eastern seaboard, including at least two dozen Corvettes of which at least 5 were C8s:
- Wednesday night – Drag racing at OBX speedway (1.5 hrs. west on mainland) $15, drive in and race to your heart’s content
- Thursday night 6PM-8PM – informal welcome at Richard Quigly’s (charity organizer) American Classic Garage
- Friday-Saturday 11 AM-5PM – cruising the 17 venues (restaurants and shops)
- Friday night – unsanctioned meets at several large venues, one in Manteo with a live band
For those who have never done this, folks come from as far away as the Gulf coast and the Northeast, many trailering their cars to the beach. They rent houses from various rental companies (now COVID prepped), or stay in one of many hotels from the lowest to highest price ranges. Many stay for a week and, given the spring timing, rates and weather should be good for outdoor dining and touring.
More information will be provided as it become available. We hope to see many more Vettes this year!
