[PICS] The 2015 Bloomington Gold Corvette Show

Last weekend Bloomington Gold completed its rookie orientation at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. A couple of soggy days couldn’t dampen spirits at the show’s 2nd new location in the last 3 years.

The combination of new driving events and the iconic location made this one of the best Bloomington Gold events in recent memory.

While much of the Corvette racing world was focused on the factory efforts at the 24 Hours of Le Mans last weekend, another historic track here in the United States was also in session. The Sportscar Vintage Racing Association (SVRA) was in Indianapolis for the 2015 Brickyard Vintage Racing Invitational and so were the vintage Corvette racers.

Our friend Glenn Brown was there to help crew for Jim Glass and his 1965 Corvette and he captured many of the classic Corvettes doing their thing on the track.

1957 Corvette SS Encounters Smoke at Indy's Brickyard Invitational

The one-of-a-kind 1957 Corvette SS must be wondering what it has to do to have some fun on the racetrack.

Fifty-seven years ago, the SS made its debut at Sebring but only managed to cover 23 laps before having to head to the garage because of technical problems. Unfortunately, it was to be the only competition for the SS because General Motors and other automakers placed a self-imposed ban on racing competition after several deaths on the track.
