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!

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.

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?

We had a Camaro cruise Friday night in and around Valdosta Ga duriing camaro5fest 1.
Someone put that great cruise together with the blessing and help of the powers that be and
the police dept. The police supervised the entire route including all the intersections.
Rumor had it there were 300+ Camaros and it was a 20+ mile long route. All I know it was a blast. It started and ended at the host hotel.
Of course Valdosta is a small town compaired to Indianapolis so a repeat may not be possable.

I guarantee those in Indianapolis will not be sitting on their rocking chairs on their lawns as we go by...LOL! That was a blast.

I loved all the kids going crazy and cheering us on as we went by. You couldn't help but gun it a few times to say "thank you"!

This would be awesome! Fit all cars on the track and take an aerial view of it. I'd love that and get one of those framed!

On a Sunday morning we had a police motor cycle escort from the host hotel to the Indy 500 track. Then we did laps around the Indy track. This was back in 1995.
