Camaro5fest cruise?

Curious to see if anyone would be open to an early evening cruise around the outerbelt of Indianapolis one evening before you all head back to the hotel or wherever? I-465 goes all the way around Indianapolis...4 lanes...would be cool to get some shots of cars on the highway and etc.

Anyone interested?

A cruise is being worked on. One slight problem is that, given the expected number of cars we could easily have a line of cars extending for well over a mile (even if we use multiple lanes). And, while epic, it would cause a few traffic problems for the city of Indianapolis. So for the time being, we aren't going to promise a full out organized cruise until we know we can deliver it. When we have something definitive, we will let you folks know.

I think an escort by the police and a Camaro pace car would be awesome.

Ok cool....465 is HUGE, and they just did a MAJOR widening project on almost all of it, a mile wouldnt cause any trouble on 465.

When I was a memeber of a mustang forum we had a cruise almost that long....keep us posted!

How about a cruise around the IMS track and the old F1 and now MotoGP portion as well?

I would be content with a lap on Indy & Gasoline Alley. Want epic? Get a photo of all these cars 5 wide all the way down the front stretch! That would be huge for Chevrolet, C5, & Indy. Just a suggestion.

If the organizers talk to the right people, I think its possible.

A cruise around I465 could be done. There already is an annual charity ride called The Loop for Life that does just that. The last one I went on had nearly 4000 motorcycles. The best part is they shut down all the on ramps and its just the charity riders only!
A lap around IMS would be awsome! I remember riding in my parents car for a lap during a car show that was held that when I was a kid, and most recently I rode my Harley around the GP course during a MotoGP weekend. It would be really cool if we could do a lap around both, the main track and the road course. That could be combined with a tour through the museum as well.

Perhaps a morning and then evening cruise to split up the groups?

It just so happens that they have tour dates for the weekend of C5Fest...so I think the stars are in line if someone pulls the trigger.

Yea, I've ridden in the Loop for life...GREAT time! Thats what I was thinking about when I started the thread...wouldnt it be cool to do like $5-10 per car and donate it to Rileys childerns hospital in name of C5 forum/fest?
