Corvette America and Carlisle Events Renew Partnership
Renowned Company to Sponsor Corvettes at Carlisle Funfield for 5th Consecutive Year
Wednesday, November 14, 2012
Since 1982, Corvettes at Carlisle has been the premier all-Corvette event in the country. The weekend, held annually at the end of August, draws tens of thousands of passionate enthusiasts to America’s Automotive Hometown, Carlisle, Pennsylvania. As part of the weekend, more than 5,000 cars are positioned onsite where like-minded attendees can mingle with one another; all while interacting with industry guests, a great array of vendors as well as partners located within the Manufacturers Midway. One of those partners, Corvette America, will return to Carlisle in 2013 as the title sponsor of the Funfield.
Since 2009, Corvette America has partnered with Carlisle Events as the title Funfield sponsor. They’ve attended Corvettes at Carlisle every year since the event’s inception but their association with Carlisle and the Corvette community runs much deeper than that. Founded in 1977, Corvette America’s modern facilities generate eco-friendly, hi-tech and handcrafted products that make them the largest and best Corvette supply company, now the #1 manufacturer and supplier of Corvette parts, interiors and wheels. With the ability to match ANY competitor’s price, Corvette America ships around the globe and provides world-class customer service courtesy of the most experienced sales and support team in the business. Best of all, products are made in the U.S.A., very close to Carlisle, in nearby Reedsville, Pennsylvania.
Having Corvette America back as the title Funfield sponsor in 2013 confirms the industry significance of Corvettes at Carlisle and allows for Corvette America to continue showcasing their products in front of a large scale audience.
“Since the first day we met with the Corvette America team we felt an instant synergy,” said Carlisle Events co-owner and Corvettes at Carlisle Event Manager Lance Miller. “Since day one we discussed how our company and theirs could work together to achieve our goals,” continued Miller. “I can undoubtedly say that both teams have gone above and beyond. We’re thrilled to work with such a great company and team; most of all we’re thankful for the friendship that’s evolved and happy to have them as part of this event for the fifth consecutive year.”
In addition to rave reviews from Miller, Corvette America as a company strongly backs what happens each summer at Carlisle. “We are so fortunate to have the premier Corvette event, Corvettes at Carlisle, right here in our backyard,” said Corvette America President Dave Hall. “There is no better place than Carlisle to witness the strength and pride of the Corvette community. Corvette owners and enthusiasts really are a tight-knit group,” Hall added. “We feel it is an honor and a responsibility to help support and be a member of that community. From the beginning, we realized that Carlisle Events and Corvette America share the same values and work very well together to uphold the annual tradition that is Corvettes at Carlisle.”
Registration is now available for the 2013 event which takes place August 23-25. Funfield participants looking to save money can do so between now and July 22, 2013 via Gate-N-Go, a pre-registration option that allows for a discount, plus the convenience of receiving event-specific materials weeks in advance of Corvette weekend.
