C5 Owners Roll At Atlanta Motor Speedway

C5 owners gathered Saturday evening at Atlanta Motor Speedway for a worthy cause, to raise money for breast cancer research. The event was sponsored by the Corvettes Serving America Foundation. Approximately twenty 5th gen Camaros from Georgia, Kentucky, Florida, South Carolina, and Virginia rolled in to strut their stuff on the track. Camaro owners purchased laps and then took to the track at speeds reported to reach 123 mph.

Participants also included Corvettes (too numerous to count), Vipers, Challengers, a Mustang or two, and a few other models. It was a blast just to listen to all the power and watch everyone’s enthusiasm.

C5 Member, Toyaholic, captured the excitement and spirit of the event in his video:



Skidpuppy, another C5 member, captured his laps around the track in this video:



The crowd was treated to a detail clinic courtesy of the Junkman. The Junkman even took the course to roll with the Camaros (check out the Junkman’s video of his laps around the track. You don’t want to miss it:



Thanks to the C5 owners who made it out. If you missed out this year, be sure to look for this event next year. It’s an experience you won’t forget.

Thanks to the CSA Foundation for inviting the 5th gen owners. The event was well organized, well staffed, and expertly run.

All participants are encouraged to post their pics here.

Is this something that they did just for this year letting Camaro's in. If not please post when they do this again. I think it would have been a blast to do this.

What is Junkman driving in the video? Is it a Corvette? I could tell it wasnt a Camaro by the way he was talking and you couldnt see the cowl of the Camaro i'm thinking its a Vette. That was a fun video to watch =)

That was all kinds of fun. Junkman was talking smack about us C5's not being able to hold the turns... Not true, we could have easily kept our foot in it around the corners but then all of us would have been going way faster than the paced 80mph. I would have gone even faster but I would have passed cars and we were told that anyone caught speeding would have been told to leave. Seeing that a few got to 120+ mph, I don't think they were watching all that well.

The problem with the speeding thing was the radar guns they had. We were watching the first group and the speed guns were clocking them at 50-60 mph when we knew they were well over 80. I wasn't worried about speeding at that point. Also, the rules noted that passing was allowed, except for the pace car. I stayed in line and enjoyed the tour on the first set of laps. On second set of laps I decided to have a bit more fun and see what the car would do on the track and take advantage of the opportunity. Second set of laps was so much more fun.

It was a great event and look forward to possibly doing it again next year. Only thing that would have been better was track time alone....no other cars.

It was a fantastic time. My 8 year old is still talking about it and asking when we can do it again. Here's a couple of photos from the starting grid

This was a very fun event. I did not realize we were aloud to pass like that. Next time I am getting in the back like Junkman and going for some fun. If we all decide to try that, we could end up having a heck of a challenge out there. I hit speeds of 120+ a few times but always backed off when I got onto the rear of several cars in front of me and then I would slow down and open a gap back up to play again.
