2011 Camaro Indy Pace Car/Festival Cars at Indy on Pole Day + Pace Car reunion

UPDATE: To see the 2011 Camaro Pace Car/Festival Cars, scroll down to post #6. For some reason they did not appear when I originally uploaded them. Sorry 'bout that.

Over the weekend my family drove our 2010 Camaro RS to Indianapolis to see Pole Day for the 100th anniversary of the Indianapolis 500 plus the 2011 Camaro Indy Pace car and festival cars and the 250 cars that participated in the Pace Car reunion. What a great event for only $15 per person. We also visited the Indy Motor Speedway museum that is currently featuring most of the existing Indy 500 winning cars going all the way back to the first one back in 1911.

I spotted something unusual while leaving the infied during the rain storm that delayed the running of the "fast nine" towards the end of the afternoon. It was a 2011 Camaro SS hardtop painted white with Indy Pace Car decals and Inferno Orange Rally Stripes instead of the full bumper stripes that the Pace Car has. This was an official car due to the fact that it was on the infield and it displayed the official license plates for the month of May. Anybody know the story behind this car? It reminds me of the Z10 hardtops of 1969. Pics of this partiular car are at the beginning of the photos in post #6. Enjoy!

Here are the pics that were supposed to be at the beginning. I uploaded them, but I am not sure why they didn't appear. Anybody know the story behind the 2011 Camaro hardtop with the Indy Pace Car graphics and Inferno Orange Metallic Rally Stripes? Enjoy!

Pace car coupes

Yes, there were 2 coupes used as track cars this year. They were both assigned out to Indy Police chief / sheriff staff instead of the convertibles. there was also a black car with event graphics we are researching.

Awesome pictures Scott!!! I may have to save some of yours, you did a much better job taking pictures than I did. The first picture of a '67 (with the yellow flags, next to the silver 2002) is me, standing behind the truck lid in a yellow shirt with my fathers day straw fedora type hat. Must of been stashing stuff to keep out of the rain.

The story on the coupes is pretty much the same as always, it seems to happen every year as far back as '67 even where there were a few RS only festival cars and rumored to be two or three coupes as well. IMS, the Festival comittee, etc. always seem to miscommunicate and more promises get made then they have cars to fill them. Couldn't get the right color and striped 'verts in time as they're still somewhat limited still so they did the next best thing, white coupes with the inferno orange interior and regular RPO orange stripes. And even if they aren't Z4Z pace cars the fact that they now have a "Civic Event" plate associated with their VIN and they were used at the track that makes them Festvial or Event cars. Pretty cool one to have! I got a short ride in #53 while the pace car professor had possesion of it.

EDIT: BTW there are three of the coupes, at one time all three were side by side in the flag lot where the one if pictured, but I can't find one of the pictures now.
