Exclamation Details about Camaro5 Fest V

I hate to be the idiot about asking this, but could someone please tell me a little bit more about Camaro5 fest. I'm fairly new around here. I read the other threads so I have a general idea about it. I would love to attend, but I would like to know more what it's about.

It's all about getting to know your car (as well as the people of this forum) better.

There are events you can take part in (drag racing, auto crossing, sometimes road courses) to learn the limits of your and your car's abilities better.

And there are people from all walks of like that come together to celebrate the vehicle they have come to know and love.

Plus, there's a crap-ton of liquor in the host hotel parking lot each night that helps us all become the best of friends

Glad you started the thread.

It's sort of a Sturgis for Camaros except the location changes each year. Part of the fun is cruising across the country with other Camaros to a huge gathering of cars and like minded folks.

When held up North it's normally in the Summer and for down South it's in the Spring and is a Friday/Saturday event which leaves Sunday for the cruise home. You will find folks in your area or others coming from the East (in your case) and coordinate times to hook up and cruise with them.

You would arrive at the hotel on Thursday night and attend a meet and greet or some other gathering of 500 to 1000 cars. Then it's an early rise and off to the track on Friday. Some park in the car show area, others get ready for auto cross and drag racing and there is a vendor alley for you to check out all the latest Camaro accessories.

GM brings some of the latest cars to showcase and in some instances like the Z/28 you will be one of the 1st to see them. GM performance parts also attends with some of their goodies. Also, very notable GM/Camaro personalities always attend the show and mingle with the crowd both at the event and in the hotel parking lots.

Saturday is more of the same and the racing finals are normally paired up by then so if not racing it makes for some great spectating from the grand stands. Late Saturday is the awards ceremony and some special announcements or drawings.

I know I've missed a lot so feel free to ask questions and we'll keep the thread going for all the new folks who wish to attend. This event keeps getting bigger all the time as more 5th Gen Camaros are on the road now and Texas will be the biggest. It's also open to all Camaros/Firebirds and anyone can come join the fun no matter what they drive.

No you would not. Track will be open all day and you could even qualify that morning for eliminations in the afternoon.

Yes, sleep is something you save for Monday. It won't happen on fest weekend.
