The countdown to Bloomington Gold 2015 currently stands at just over 2 weeks. One of the additions to the show in recent years is the Gold Autocross. Now, as the granddaddy of all Corvette shows is set to make its debut at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Bloomington Gold has announced that Lingenfelter Performance Engineering and RideTech will be sponsoring one of their newest driving events.
The 2015 edition of Bloomington Gold takes place at the legendary Indianapolis Motor Speedway Thursday June 25th through Saturday June 27th.
This year the Bloomington Gold Autocross will be held each day of the Bloomington Gold show. Corvette owners and drivers of any skill level can participate in the event. For safety, helmets will be required. Those who don’t have their own can grab one on site. Registration for the Gold Autocross will be held during check-in each day from 8am to 9am. The inaugural run of each day will take place promptly at 9am.
Participation isn’t just limited to Corvette drivers. Attendees will also have the chance all 3 days to participate in ride-alongs in Lingenfelter-powered Corvettes.
“Lingenfelter is dedicated to developing a continually-expanding line of engine components for Corvette owners who want to achieve maximum performance” said Ken Lingenfelter, owner, Lingenfelter Performance Engineering.
As you’ll recall, Lingenfelter and RideTech recently combined forces on the 48-Hour Corvette Build. There, Lingenfelter supplied a 650hp LS7 crate engine and RideTech provided the shop space and suspension products to help turn a C3 Corvette into a high end track weapon. That vehicle is currently tearing up the Goodguys autocross as well as the OPTIMA Ultimate Street Car events.
“RideTech wants to help Corvette enthusiasts have some real fun with their cars, to drive them as they were designed to be driven. Partnering with Corvette market leader Lingenfelter Performance to bring an event like this to the most prestigious Corvette show in the world was a natural,” said RideTech president Bret Voelkel.
Bloomington Gold 2015 will take place Thursday June 25th through Saturday June 27th. The event will be taking over the entire IMS complex for the three day show. That includes the tracks, the garages, and even the golf course. Make your travel plans now as this is sure to be the best Bloomington Gold show yet.
