Las Vegas Corvettes Association presents Corvette Roulette rallye


The Las Vegas Corvettes Association is having its 6th annual Corvette Roulette rallye Oct. 7-9 and is currently taking registrations for this year's event.

Activities will include a Friday night welcome party with hors d'oeuvres, music, dancing and a cash bar. Saturday will feature a judged car show, a poker-and-gimmick rallye and a poker tournament. Sunday's events include low-speed and matching-times autocrosses, an evening awards banquet, music, dancing and a cash bar.

Corvette owners participating in the rallye will compete in various classes depending on the year of their car and what modifications they've made to it.

Car classification and judging will be done according to the National Council of Corvette Clubs rules. Corvette club members will compete separately from guest participants for awards. The car show is being held in the Aliante's parking lot in front of the hotel's main entrance.

Corvette drivers and their navigators will be required to drive a specified route that both starts and finishes at the Aliante. Participants have to identify some specifics along the route and draw playing cards at several stops, which are used to make up a poker hand at the rallye's finish.

Autocrosses will be held at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

An autocross is a timed competition where drivers navigate, one at a time, through a temporary course marked by traffic cones, rather than racing on a track with multiple other cars. Corvettes will be competing in various classes in two types of autocrosses.

In the low-speed autocross, the driver's goal is to have the fastest time for his/her class. In the matching-times autocross, a driver is trying to have two runs on the course with the exact same times.

A block of rooms at the Aliante, overlooking the parking lot, have been made available to participants. On Saturday evening, an optional poker tournament will be held at the Aliante.
