NCCC Competitive Events
NCCC sanctions hundreds of events each year that are hosted by other member clubs. Participants in these events, which usually consist of concours, rallyes or autocross activities, earn points toward NCCC annual championship trophies. Corvette Annapolis generally sponsors several NCCC events each year such as car shows and rallyes.
Here is a brief description of the different NCCC events:
From the term “concours d’elegance” literally a gathering of elegance. A concours is a show competition in which Corvette’s are judged for cleanliness and/or authenticity. Classes by year include pure stock (concours), modified, street show, wash & show, race prepared, custom, and exhibition. NCCC points are awarded for entry, as well as, place.
A fun show is where Corvette owners can enter their car for show. Classes are by year and the judging is done by fellow exhibitors. NCCC points are awarded for entry only, regardless of show placement.
There are two types of Rallye’s: Gimmick and Poker
Gimmick: Events in which a team of a driver and navigator follow a list of clues and instructions to get from a starting point to a finishing point. Unlike “time/speed/distance” rallye’s, these are more of the “seat of the pants” variety, relying on trick clues, questions, and other gimmicks to challenge participants. NCCC points are awarded for entry, as well as place.
Poker Run: A fun event in which a team of a driver and navigator follow instructions to get from a starting point to a finishing point. Along the way there will be card stops where the team chooses a playing card. The team with the highest poker hand wins. NCCC points are awarded for entry, as well as place.
Timed competition on a closed course designed to test the skill and reflexes of the driver as well as the Corvette’s acceleration, braking and handling. Autocross courses are set up with traffic pylons through which contestants must negotiate. With only one on a course at a time, the objective is to complete the course in minimum time and with no penalties. Classes are based on engine compression, horsepower and/or modification. NCCC points are awarded for entry as well as place. These events are generally low-speed and held in a parking lot.
