    There are 4-5 Sports car competitive slalom clubs in the Lower Mainland.
    They take turns booking the Pitt Meadows site almost every weekend Spring thru Fall.
    There is even a Winter Slush series that had event there today...
    I can PM you a schedule.

    Sure. If you have any contact info I'll take it and make some inquiries with them. It should be fun to take a few laps and get a true feeling for the car. With my 911, back in the day. I (stupidly) would practice around the bends in Stanley Park.

    SO temporarily back on topic .....
    Found this advertisement in the latest Corvette Magazine.

    Appears the competitor splash guard has the same flow from the front GrandSport guard.
    So something like the Z06 is not aftermarket or GM accessory yet for the GrandSport (maybe).
    I am pretty sure though that in good time this will not be a long term visual issue.

    Here is whom I purchased my splash guards through... Cultrag Performance via Ebay. $120. US + shipping. I think its pretty decent value.

    This is a set of Genuine GM C7 front and rear splash guards, mud flaps, for the 2014-2018 Chevrolet C7 Corvette.

    Note: The splash guards do fit Z06 & Grand Sport models.

    Keep in mind as well that if you look online at a Dealership who has the GM accessories options, the prices include installation so you want to get tight with the Parts Manager or Parts Tech so that you can get near or whole sale pricing. I was rather surprised with the price when you buy front and back at the same time (as apparently not everyone does).

    I put these on my former '14 and my current Z06. Bought them from RPI designs. They sell them as well but I got the back side body colour so they look even more 'stock'. They do help protect that area just behind the tires which tends to get chipped up.

    We have the stone guards on our '05. They seem to do a good job of keeping stones away from the paint. Not great big ugly things either. No one even notices them. IMG_3479.JPG

    That is an awesome reply as I have been mentioning that these splash guards are no longer noticeable over time ...
    just for a little while after being something fresh that you did to your little gem ...
    and there's never a bad photo from the owner of a Corvette - awesome photo :thumbs:
