Phoenix was perfect. Drag, autoX, road course, and car show. Had everything there. I plan on diving to Houston area from Los Angeles in May. Still a long drive but I've missed the last two and that sucked.

New places are fun to go to, but I have to say things are easier to deal with when your familiar with your surroundings as well.

Texas should be fun ! hope I can make it again next year !

Im happy where ever it is, couldn't make indy 2 years in a row, but will be at texas next year! I do have a suggestion though I love the phoenix idea.... LOL

Rocky Mountain Raceway - http://www.rmrracing.com/

Drag strip, autocross area (east of the oval track), vendor area (why not just set them up in the oval on the grass and leave the track/tarmac for foot traffic), and car show on the other side of the drag strip...

Add in that its probably not that expensive...

Not sure on hotel/accommodations though didn't look around that much.. but im sure SLC has something...

Add in that its pretty "central" to the west coast!

If the event gets big enough places will want us to come. Revenue for the city and all will be a selling point. But, we have to get the attendance #s.
This is the #1 reason why college football bowls want Alabama because we as fans travel and sell the place out.

I am just glad you announced the location and time of next year's Fest at this year's event. I think you should try to do that every year. It gives us all a chance to work it into our schedules for next year. Thank you.

From my door step to Houston I'm looking at 750 miles which is not bad. Petty much a straight shot through I10. Heck it was a longer drive to Indy this year

Z-max speedway in Charlotte North Carolina. Think of how awesome it would be to do a four lane drag race

Sweet. Not sure how much the track rental would be but that would be a pretty cool place to have it. The area around it is pretty large so I'm sure there is space for a camarocross also.

Memphis has a nice 1/4 mile track and an autocross track. Pretty centrally located with plenty of hotel space and lots to do downtown. And of course Graceland!

Circuit of the Americas for a future FEST. We would need some assistance from GM as the track rental is about $40,000 a day and worth every penny.



GM can introduce the 6th Gen here. I'm sure the drag strip will be built by then... I have assigned MLEE to get it done. We can start at turn 5 and finish at turn 13.



Now that I have done all the ground work I'll turn it over to Mr. Wyndham, GTAHVIT, Killer and company to flesh out the details.

Doug who

When GM rolled out the 5th Gen at the Back to the Brickyard event it was a static display with some great presentations from the Camaro TEAM. Attendance was impressive. If and it is a huge IF, the Camaro TEAM would like to roll the 6th Gen moving vehicle public and press launch into the world's largest Camaro event along with the presentations we could skip a year of drag racing. I know that would be a HUGE disappointment to many C5 enthusiasts, but I am hoping they would trade that to be among the very first to get a ride or in a perfect world a drive in a 6th Gen.

GM would have the full track a day or two before for media... There are sooo many ifs, but maybe, just maybe

I have no idea what you are talking about, Chris. I said HELL YEAH! ....now go find me 25k PER DAY to set up here....psh...

and while it doesn't have a 1/4 mile drag strip yet, it will.

Mikes friend Rhett's dad just rented the track for him for a day so he could go out and race his car....maybe we need to his up Mike to talk to Rhett??

YEAH, BABY!!!




...and should I just change the title of this thread to "C5F6 and where you'd like it???"
