Camaro5 Fest Attendee Costs $$$
 
Okay so now I know what it's going to cost me in gas and lodging to get to my first Fest. For those like myself who have never been to one before what additional costs should I expect?

I would plan to bring money for the following. Some of the prices are flat fees like admission or the hotel, but food and booze are all relative:

Food
Booze
Souveniers/mods (if wanted)
gas
hotel
admission
Tires?
race fuel or refilling from racing?

Did I miss anything guys and gals?

I think the OP is referring to the cost of the events..... but I could be wrong.

If you are bringing a S.O. and/or children, maybe planning some other events in the area if they are not as "thrilled" to be there as you are. I know there is an Art institute not to far, Downtown Indianapolis has entertainment.

Last year fees were $20 per spectator and $100 for drivers for 2 days.

Yeah i get the optional things like booze and buying from venders. More interested in fixed expenses.

Required: Hotel, entry fee, gas, food.

optional: Vendors merchandise, C5 stuff.

Do you need cash for the $100 admission or do they take Visa?

Hmm, leaving $50.00 to $100.00 at the Adams booth may not be optional. :D

Definitely bring a credit card if you're drag racing, most vendors there will take them to replace your broken axles, gears, etc. ;)
Ask me how I know.

I don't want to know, I'm just glad the vendors are there helping us out. Playing hard does break things and it's a comfort to know we have vendors here that do assist us in desperate times.

Bring money for Fest gear!!! We'll have all of our Fest shirts and other Camaro5 items on hand. Speaking of....we need our new shirts done.........

Save up for future mods,as most vendors will do free installs.

I really hope one of the camp grounds around there will be open this year. I decided to save money so i could buy a mod while I was there and just slept in my car. :sm0:Would have made it a lot better had one of the campgrounds would have been open:mad0260:

I went last year and spent about $2500.00 driving from Maryland and hotels and meals and about $400.00 in upgrades. This year I want to spend more money!

CWI 12-08-2012 04:19 AM

$20 each to tour The Brickyard. It's worth the $20 if you've never been there. You actually get on the track and touch the bricks.

That is if your racing. General admission was $20

flyer08 12-09-2012 08:32 PM

That sounds more reasonable but $100 to race is excessive

mulletman 12-11-2012 10:29 PM

What price are the wimmen?

$100 for 2 days of an open track is a deal. Cars were able to make as many passes as they wanted. There was never a line to wait in. To people that hit the track often this is awesome. It's basically a camaro private rental.


Plus, if your car is faster enough you can actually make money racing.;) C5 payed me to be there.:D

$100 is a STEAL. When I race in the points its $20 and you only get a minimum of 3 passes. Plus for $100 you can drag race and/or autocross
