Camaro Corrals: Information

From Camaro Disciple Sherry:

Camaro Road Racing Fans….make plans to join in the fun at one of the upcoming Camaro Corrals at the IMSA Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge races!! What happens at a Camaro Corral? Meet & Greets with the Camaro Drivers and Teams, pre-race track walks, special parking areas and special giveaways – and at some venues, perhaps even a lap around the track. And….you get to meet and hang out with Camaro friends!!

Come out and support the Camaro Teams – the new Z/28.R has already been in Winner’s Circle this year and they’re once again chasing the championship!!! It’s a great family, fan-friendly event!

Show your Camaro pride at a track near you!!! Camaro Corrals are currently scheduled for the following venues:

Saturday, June 28 at Watkins Glen http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=349233

Friday, July 25 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=349192

At present time, there isn't one planned for VIR. If interested in hosting a corral there, please let me know and we'll see what can be done. Thanks!

Start one. That's what we did. We can PM you the contacts at Chev and IMSA if you want. There's probably a group sales or PR person at VIR you can reach or the IMSA person likely can set that up.

No problem! Here's one from a while back as a clearer shot, but one from last year as well.

You, too, can get up close and personal if you're able to attend one of the corrals!!!

Bear in mind that car doesn't exist anymore. That was a Pratt & Miller built tube chassis car used in what was the Rolex GT series. The new Z28.R they field in the GS Class of the CTSCC is basically a somewhat modded production car, I believe also built by Pratt & Miller. I'm sure we'll get plenty of pics of that at the corrals as well.

Just got back from a meeting with my track contact about the Corral at Watkins. While there was going to go out on the track for the noon run, but... dang, cancelled at last second because it's apparently a test day for the IMSA guys and the haulers were coming in and needed to get into the track at that time. Bummer. Oh wait, Stevenson Motorsports was there. Bonus. The Zs were in the garage. Went inside to check them out. Can I take pics? No, you can look, but no pics. Bummer. They are awesome though. Yeah, yeah, I know, pics or it didn't happen. Unfortunately Mike Johnson wasn't here or I might have been able to. Oh well, next month.

Can you please send me the contact info? I would like to set up a corral at Road Atlanta in the fall. We did one last year when Grand Am ran there and it was a good time. My contact at Grand Am did not stay on with IMSA

Thanks,
David

Thanks. I will post the event if it works out. The race will be the Petit Lemans race (10 hours), so will be a great race to have one.

Our Grand Am corral last year was a blast, but I suspect we will need more cars for this one. Thanks to some folks from Tennessee and South Carolina we made the minimum number (barely).

Good luck! Wish we could make it, but it doesn't look like it's in the cards for us this year. :(

Camaro Corral @ Petit Le Mans October 1-4

I am in the process of setting up a Camaro Corral at the Petit Le Mans race at Road Atlanta October 1-4.

I have talked to Road Atlanta and IMSA and both are excited to have us. Road Atlanta is sending me pricing etc. later this week, and IMSA is working on team meet & greets and hot laps. Road Atlanta should be providing parade laps (in your car) as well.

We will also be working on gift bags, a cruise, and a dinner.

The corral is available to us, but we need a minimum of 50 cars to make it work. I know it is a long way off, but I need to have an idea if we have enough interest to make the minimum required.

If anyone is interested in attending, please either pm me or go to the southeast forum and post on the thread I started yesterday.

Thanks,

David

For anyone on the fence about attending a race or participating in a Corral...do it.

While I can't say I've been to a Camaro Corral, I was at the Corvette Corral a couple of weeks ago at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park (Mosport). Well worth the time and money. We got to take our cars on the track, there was a private meet/greet/autograph session with the drivers, members of GM's Corvette design team were there, there were giveaways, food on race day, and we all went home with some good swag.

Plus, it's great racing. If you have a Camaro or are a fan of them then you really need to at least go to a race. Go to IMSA.com and click on the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge heading to find a race near you. Guaranteed great time...

VIR Oaktree Grand Prix at VIR 8-23-14

Is anyone else going to this race?

The Stevenson Camaros are a blast to watch and are 11pts out of first place in the Continental Tire series.

It does not look like there is a Camaro Corral set up for parking?

That is too bad, I attended the Watkins Glen race last year and it was nice to have all of us in one place, it was like a car show. PLUS they let us drive on the track after the race! AWESOME!!!
