Welcome to Santa Clara Corvettes

Welcome to the Home of Santa Clara Corvettes

Santa Clara Corvettes is located in Santa Clara County, at the southern end of the San Francisco Bay known as “Silicon Valley”.  The club was founded in 1975 and has grown to a sustained membership of 200 members.  Our goal is to bring together Corvette enthusiasts for the mutual enjoyment of our cars in an atmosphere conducive to forming strong personal relationships.  We sponsor an annual car show, Corvette Spectacular, an autocross series and several monthly social events including trips and technical gatherings.  We participate in a series of motorsport events that include autocrosses and drag races as well as a series of formal and informal car shows. Our Monthly newsletter/magazine, First Class Glass was rated BEST in the Nation for 2013. To find out more about our monthly meetings, please click on the info menu.  Please visit the events calendar to see what events we have planned for the year.  Guests are welcome at our events.

  
 
A Word from our President

Welcome to our Santa Clara Corvettes website for 2015.

We are celebrating our 40th Anniversary this year and are proud to be one of the most successful Corvette clubs in the country. We hope you enjoy the website and find the information about our club that you are looking for. We are an extremely active club in all facets of Corvetting. Santa Clara Corvettes is a member of the Western States Corvette Council, WSCC, and participates in all of their related events as well. If you would like to contact us, please email any of our Board members or leave a comment in our guestbook. We encourage you to come celebrate our 40th Anniversary with us this year. If you should become a member of our club, you will be traveling in some pretty “fast company”.
