I would love to go to Road Atlanta, I'm not sure what CFI had in Georgia, but CFII had the 1 mile track, where you had to have an instructor in the car, that was fun 2 years ago, but I want to open my car up on a nice road course!

When the Fests are planned, I think drag racing is given a priority, only a handful of tracks offer a true road course and 1/4 strip.....Sedona in Arizona, various tracks in Socal, we have laguna seca, and infineon offers both a strip and road course!

Wow..the sky is falling lol..what a bunch of whiny babies. These guys bust there butts to put these events on and people bash because it's not convenient enough. I'm sure most of these people are not breaking the bank to help organize these events. I own my own business and this doesn't surprise me. You just can't make some people happy. You can give them something and they get pissed off.. Some of you just lost your man cards so give them up.. You don't deserve it..

You must not have read all of the previous posts and just read the last couple....call it what you want, the other side of the country (yes we have a TON of camaros out here too!) got the short end of the stick in having the missed out on the Fest 2 years in a row, of course we are going to be upset because it has been alternating locations the past 3 times.

FWIW... the Fest has been a 2 day drive from Texas all 3 times. At least you got one on your side (within one day) and TX still had WAY more cars show up in Arizona than CA did. I think he read the thread just fine by himself.

if you are thinking vegas in august, that would be miserable...average weather is 103f and can be 115, if unlucky...last time i went to vegas in august, i was walking the hoover dam and swore i melted half of my jordans on the asphalt walking...just consider a diff month if vegas is in consideration for a fest..last 4 years on august 5th ranged in temps of 105.1 to 107.6...i don,t think that would be fun temps to be outside all day, nor racing in those temps..just thought i would throw that out there..may in vegas would be ideal

Yup... I said it in an earlier post... Vegas is just one example. Arizona, Texas, Georgia anywhere South and we have to go back to a Springtime fest which brings on a whole different thread. I can't wait for that one..

First some comments about the 2013 event:

I am new here - only bought my SS convertible a couple of weeks ago but I come from being very acitve on some other car forums for over a dozen years - Prowler, SSR.. etc.

Having been involved with planning at least a half dozen National car events and coming from a full time profession for decades as a convention contractor - events the size of the Camaro Fest are best served starting planning at least two years in advance if possible and more than one year for sure. For example - my company is currently working on events scheduled to happen as far out as 2015, 2016 even out to 2018 - some venues/hotels already have contacts out as far as 2020. Finding a city/location/track etc. to host the Fest less than a year out is be commended.

The organizers here have found what appears to be the best option for hosting a great event. The dates and location will never suite everyone and that's to be expected. If you can make the event then please do so; if not, please understand these events are all about getting together and having fun. The cars - Camaros in this case -are just a means of bringing people together and forming new friendships and sharing in some good times.

Pete -as far as Texas goes, I am planning a Prowler National event in 2013 in Kerrville, Texas and would happy to discuss assisting with planning a Camaro event in Texas for the future whether it's a National or Regional event.

Yup, that was the So Cal Race Team you saw dominitating the Autocross...but Super Chevy isn't going back to Vegas next year...outside of the drag racing being pretty full and our group running in the Autocross, there were only another 30 cars at the car show Saturday....Vegas is a great venue, with lots of hotels....but I heard it is very expensive to rent...will see...

Maybe step back and look at the big picture.... It appears to me from the tidbits of information that have been provided there is more going on than what is easily seen at this time. Going back to Indy this year may not be the most convenient for everyone this year buuuuuuuut it's early "set time" free's man power up to start looking at future events. When they can start planning the fest 1-2 years out, A LOT more venues will be easier to obtain.

Obviously this is just my opinion as I don't know the future plans.... But it appears to me that this year's fest is helping to set up future events.... Maybe even a set rotation.

As our motto has been around here for year's..... Let's "Keep the Faith"
