[PICS] The Great Hall at Bloomington Gold 2013

Last weekend marked the 4th installment of Bloomington Gold’s Great Hall. The 4th class of honorees was one of the best yet. The Corvette inductees included the legendary 1963 Grand Sport, the first big block, and the mighty 2009 ZR-1. The people and organizations category featured the godfather of the Corvette, the founder of Carlisle Events, and the Flying Dentist among others.

Bloomington Gold’s Great Hall will honor 10 people and 10 Corvettes annually until 50 people and 50 cars have been faithfully enshrined. The Great Hall’s intent is to salute the pioneers of our hobby – the people, organizations, and the cars that helped create the phenomenon we know and love today. It’s their passion and drive that helped to build the hobby for all of us to enjoy.

For 2013 The Great Hall occupied a portion of the iHotel adjacent to the Assembly Hall show site. The air conditioned show space proved to be a nice respite from the heat and searing sun on Friday and the annoying intermittent rain on Saturday. Rick Hendrick’s Owens-Corning L88 racer and a display from our artist friend Dan McCrary greeted visitors before entering the hall.

Here is the list of inductees in The Great Hall’s class of 2013.

It’s hard to believe that 2014 will already be the final year of the Great Hall. We’re certain the Bloomington Gold team is already working on yet another great set of inductees. Until then, you can peruse our photos from the 2013 Great Hall below.
