Big news out of the Bloomington Gold camp this week! After several years of contemplation, the show will be expanding to include Chevrolet Camaros in addition to Corvettes for the 2019 show. This is the first ever that another mark has been part of the Bloomington event.
Camaro owners will have many of the same opportunities as Corvettes throughout the June 20th – 22nd event. Attendees will be able to participate in the driving laps around the speedway, take part in the road tour, and be able to peruse many Camaro-centric vendors. Survivor, Gold, and Benchmark Certification of Camaros isn’t currently offered but could be added somewhere in the future.
“Not only do a lot of our customers have Camaros in their garage, [the Camaro] is a nice stepping stone before entering the Corvette hobby. Why not share the fun that so many Corvette owners are having at Bloomington Gold with owners of another Chevrolet vehicle with the same need for speed?” says Guy Larsen, Bloomington Gold Owner and President. He went on to say “After sharing the idea with a number of our sponsors, customers, and key Camaro players at GM, we decided now is the time to move forward with the addition.”
Bloomington Gold 2019 will take place June 20th – 22nd at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. General admission tickets, lap times, garages, and suites are all on sale now and can be purchased here.
This is HUGE shift for the Granddaddy of Corvette shows. It’ll be interesting to see how this all comes together as the 2019 event approaches. What are your thoughts on Camaros at Bloomington Gold? Let us know in the comments below.
