Sun Peaks, BC (August 20, 2013) - Owners and drivers of over 135 rare and beautiful automobiles will enjoy the stunning drive to Sun Peaks before arranging their cars for the public to admire in the charming village at two separate car events in the coming weeks. Sun Peaks has proven to be a perfect venue for car enthusiasts to unite over their shared passion. Choosing from a range of accommodation, dining and activities, the clubs have everything they need to make for an easy and relaxed social function.
 
This weekend, close to 65 Corvettes from all points of the Pacific Northwest will come to Sun Peaks for the B.C. Corvette Club’s Thunder Under the Sun event. The club will enjoy social activities, competitions and live music in the village over the weekend, including a show 'n’ shine on Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. It’s complimentary for resort guests and anyone from the region to view the Corvettes, ranging in year and model.
 
From September 20 to 23, over 70 collectible cars will join the 4th Annual Run to the Sun Car Gathering at Sun Peaks, making it the largest Run to the Sun to date. Originally a Calgary Car Club event, it has evolved to include over six clubs from as far away as Vancouver Island, Washington, the Lower Mainland and Alberta.
 
The Run to the Sun Show 'n’ Shine takes place on Saturday, September 21 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the village’s main walkway, featuring cars ranging from a 1938 SS 100 Jaguar  to a 2012 Lotus Evora IPS and many other gems. The show 'n’ shine is free for the public and guests are welcome to view the cars and discuss them with their owners.
