Corvette Showcase in Lakeland to Offer Saturday Awards via Guest Judge

As part of the 2019 Corvette showcase at Winter AutoFest in Lakeland, Carlisle Events is pleased to share with you the list of those who will help pick the award winners on Saturday of event weekend. The panel, comprised of writers, experts and industry professionals will view and review the showfield on Saturday between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Judges will walk the grounds and check out each car. The “celebrity” award winner will have a special sticker affixed to their window indicating they are a winner and also receive a plaque/award in recognition of the honor. It’s fun, it’s low key and it offers some great bragging rights too among your fellow Corvette owners.
