The National Corvette Restorer’s Society’s Winter Regional Meet has always been a highlight for many enthusiasts. For those in the Southeast Region, it has always been a great resource for those hard-to-find parts for their projects. For those in the northern regions, it has always served as a ray of sunshine (and warmer temperatures) from the cold and damp environment they call home during the winter months.
The NCRS Winter Regional Meet has been held at various locations over the years, and of late, has called the Sun N’ Fun facilities at the Lakeland Linder airport home for the event. The Sun N’ Fun facilities offers the necessary space and security to hold such an event that contains such valuable components such as Corvettes and Corvette components.
That is the very same reason that Carlisle Events has held several events at the facility over the years. You may be reading this as you recover from all the fun and excitement at this year’s Corvettes at Carlisle, which was held this past weekend in Carlisle Pennsylvania. Carlisle knows how to put on an event, and Corvettes at Carlisle has grown to be one of the nation’s largest Corvette-only event.
Carlisle Events and the NCRS have decided to combine their efforts to satiate the appetites of those hungering for Corvette fun in the Southeast. They’ve combined the Winter Regional with Carlisle’s Winter AutoFest, to supply the enthusiast with the best that both events have to offer. The Winter AutoFest features a two-day auction where cars from all ages and manufacturers cross the auction block. As a nod to the NCRS show itself, Carlisle Auctions will host at least one Corvette specific hour as part of its two-day auction in the adjacent hanger/auction arena.
Both events bring their swap meets, car shows, judging, fun and frolic in a combined effort to make Lakeland Florida the go-to destination for fun in the sun on February 22-24, 2019. Registration for the NCRS event should be done through them as been the case in years past, while those looking to be a vendor should contact Carlisle Events online or by calling 717-243-7855.
