Welcome to the Cedar Rapids Corvette Club (CRCC). Established in 1963, CRCC is the largest Corvette Club in Iowa!  Join us in our 2014 events and activities celebrating our 51st year as a social club.


CRCC is dedicated to the joy of Corvette ownership and helping those in need. In addition to our monthly meetings, we enjoy dinner out each month (maybe two), host autocross events at Hawkeye Downs Speedway, drive our Vettes in parades, raise funds for charities, carry homecoming king and queen candidates for local schools, colleges, and universities, dazzle visitors at Lindale Mall during our annual "Cruisin' the Ave Charity Car Show" and generally enjoy life behind the wheel of THE great American sports car - Corvette 

The Cedar Rapids Corvette Club is sponsored by Pat McGrath Chevyland.
