December 2023

Updated: Dec 1, 2023



Hello Everyone,


What a terrific year we've had together! So many events and club highlights, so many new members and friendships, and such amazing support from our club sponsors! We thank you all for making the Viper Club of Ontario such an important part of Viper ownership across Ontario...and now Western New York State!

Our 2023 Viper Show & Lunch Meeting was a record-breaking success, Stellantis-FCA went all out for our VIP Tour of their Brampton "Muscle Car" Plant where countless member's iconic Mopars were built, and we planned 50+ days of social & performance driving events where over 170 of our members attended and made them successes!



Before we say farewell to 2023 and get into our exciting 2024 plans, here are some photos below from our November dinner in Newmarket at the new Beertown. We had a great turnout but almost forgot to take photos and regrettably missed many who had already left.



Photo Gallery Is Complete!

You can now view 100's of photos from our 2023 events! Relive the memories and discover those you missed! There are separate Gallery pages for Social events, Performance Driving, 2023 Viper Show & Lunch Meeting, and Drive Festival (with VCO Viper Exhibit!) events. You'll also see pages for 2022, 2021, and Previous Year's photos.

A report and photos from our Brampton Plant VIP Tour will be presented soon.

You'll find all the photos here...enjoy! https://www.viperclubofontario.com/gallery

2024 Events Calendar

We're pleased to present 50+ exciting 2024 club events on our website's "Events" page... More event details and dates for the last few will be added soon, but you can start putting a few on your own calendars now! https://www.viperclubofontario.com/events.


Our goal is to provide events that are local to all members, and our very large region size means our many area directors need to each plan lots of events! This also means that there are countless events available to those willing to drive outside of their local areas!


We've planned these "Special Events" that we expect many will drive a longer distance to:


Looking Ahead to 2024

We're not only excited about our fantastic calendar of events that foster lasting friendships, but also our determined efforts to strengthen club resources that benefit our members in countless ways. We'll continue to grow our club and Viper community, support car culture with other clubs and industry leaders, and support local charity!

We have developed very extensive membership benefits that many won't be aware of. Please review them here, and if you'd like to learn more, just reach out to Bruce or your local area director! https://www.viperclubofontario.com/clubprograms/essential-benefits-of-viper-club-of-ontario-membership.
