Camaro5 Fest III Cruise PICS and VIDEO here.

I've been asked a few times over the last couple days on whether or not a cruise is going to take place this year. We've been doing everything possible to try to make this work.

I've been in touch with the Indianapolis PD traffic unit and they are going to try everything they can to help us out. I meet with them on Wed and final details will be put together then.

As of right now, due to the very high volume of cars that will potentially be attending the cruise, it looks like we are going to have to stick to open road....no intersections...and that means doing the loop around the city. Otherwise, I can tell you all right now, a cruise would never happen. ....not with upwards of 500 cars. We'd be looking at closing intersections from the host hotel to the entrance to the highway and then we'd all funnel ourselves into the main lanes. Intersections would be closed on the way back as well.

The cruise is scheduled as an opener, as it was during our first Fest. It will take place on Thursday night at 1830 hours leaving the host hotel and ending at the host hotel. Approximate distance is 55 miles....around an hour drive time. This is comparable to Valdosta in drive time, but just a tad bit faster.

Needless to say, TRAFFIC LAW APPLIES AND YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR OWN ACTIONS.

These are NOT closed roads. There will be no goofing off during the cruise. There will be no burnouts, no racing, no impeding traffic, no slaloming on the highway....nada. If you decide to try to be Mr. Billy Badass and the uniformed officers assisting us see you, expect to be dealt with. Warning...has been given.

Again, the same rules and laws that you drive by every single day apply.

If you can't follow those simple requests, it's with a sad heart that we say, "we'd rather you stay behind at the hotels with the others who wish not to participate."


For all others who wish to be a part of something incredibly MASSIVE, we can't wait to see you Thursday night!


Again, the cruise is dependent upon Indy PD, but will most likely happen.

During Camaro for Hero's we had 250 Camaros and it was a major task for the local PD. I can only imagine what 500+ would be like in downtown Indy.

The cruise at Valdosta was GREAT!!! But really, it is just a cruise with 500 of your best friends. So keep it smart and just enjoy being part of something special. Save your speed for the drag strip or AX on Friday and Sat. We are leaving in the morning. See you all in Indy. Drive Safely.

After attending the races here Thu, Fri, Sat and Sun - the cops are out in force and deal with people quickly! I cant tell you how many we times we seen people pulled over, arrested, towed etc... Indy cops have deal with hours of traffic and thousands of cars for events - C5Fest is not going to be a problem for them..they are ready.

It WAS nuts- kind of a controlled chaos..... lol
It may be hard to top.

Valdosta was amazing. But it is also the difference in a town of 50k people vs a city of over 800k. Logistics just wouldn't allow the same thing to take place in Indy.

I can tell you the 465 loop will be challenging due to traffic merging and idiots trying to cross 5 lanes of traffic and cutting you off. There are also a few areas of construction to deal with. There will still be some lingering rush hour traffic as well. Bring your best defensive driving skills!

Around the 500 we have had police escorts to IMS and even with only 50 cars it is a harrowing experience . Their idea of a police escort is typically blocking an exit for 30sec and then taking off to the next one (leaving everyone else behind to fend for themselves. However I do understand this is the only possible way to do this with a large volume of cars.

Steve is right! We've both done the escorts to IMS about 3x a year and its wild to say the least! As I tell people in our escort from Hare Chevrolet, anticipate. Drive ahead of where you are, keep a good distance between you and the guy in front of you. I always suggest headlights on but NO 4-WAY FLASHERS as it kills your brake lights. This is something we can all talk to each other about and not talk about each other. Let that sink in overnight and you'll understand where I'm coming from.

We don't want to cause IMPD any issues with this cruise and we don't want to bring unfavorable light onto the club with an incident that took place in New Jersey with the Death Race. Being an Indiana trooper myself, I know how these things can go. We've had a couple of I465 cruises with no more than 15 cars that was a pain in the butt and I threatened to jump out after only a couple of miles.
Be safe and who's buying the pizza? All I can say is look out fro Brad aka BSX_Camaro
