2015 IMSA Camaro Corral-Watkins Glen 6/27/15

Please join us for the 5th Annual Camaro Corral IMSA Race Weekend June 25th-28th at Watkins Glen. Looks like this year we will be in a designated general corral for car clubs in turn 10 behind the Jackie Stewart grandstand. The price is $65/ticket and a $50 parking fee for the corral. Our main focus will be the CTSCC Race on Saturday, but tickets and parking are good for the 4 days of the event. I am working to get Chevrolet to subsidize at least part of the parking fee. We’ll see how that goes. I think there’s a good shot. There will also be parade laps. Not sure of day and time yet. That and more details as they become available. I will also try to have some door prizes and goody bag stuff as usual. I will post a schedule of events including team tours as it gets closer. There will be no host hotel this year. Anyone needing a room can look at choices in Watkins Glen, Corning, Elmira, and Ithaca. You might want to move quick as the closer places are likely to be sold out fast if not already. Anyone interested post up and I will add you to the list. For ticket info see link to flyer below.

Great stuff Mark. I'm glad you were able to do this again for the group. Karen and I always enjoy the hospitality of the Upstate C5 folks, and the race.

Like I mentioned before, I was thinking of bringing the fifth and camping at the track this year. I had held off booking earlier as it looked like (for a while anyway) the group was going to skip the corral this year.

I guess I better make the call and get a site.

Purchased my 2 G.A. passes and campsite today. Site #224 Trackside in the Boot. Very few trackside camping spots left. A little "out there" but I always spend a lot of time taking pics in the boot anyway...so it's all good.

What's up bro? Things are pretty dead this year for a number of reasons.

1 Ridiculous pricing by the track and IMSA
2 Indifference from the track towards corrals for unsponsored car clubs
3 Indifference towards Camaros in general from Chevrolet
4 GM Nats and Camaro Nats the same weekend
5 General disinterest from our members

Still working on some stuff. Hope you're still coming. The less attendees the more swag for the rest of us, lol.
I know I didn't Gionni's name right. What is it?

Re post #3:

You gotta like those friendly Canucks.

Thanks again Mark for doing this. I know how it can be frustrating sometimes, but we appreciate all your efforts.

Mark,
After talking with the team we have a few cool options for you! We’re thinking of doing a tech talk with our engineer, Andrew Wojteczko, where you all come out to our paddock and get tips on how to set up the Camaro for The Glen. You can also meet the team and drivers. We’d also like to bring the two Camaro’s out to your corral after the race for pictures. We’ll also have some team hat’s for you all to wear!
Do you think your team would be interested in those ideas?

Lindsay



Sounds awesome to me!
Hey Mark,
Tell them if they send me some Mantella team decals or whatever I'll add them to my club hood for the race weekend.

PM'ed you my home address.

Coming with you or bringing a car?

No help from Chevy. Did send some leftover stuff from the reveal.

Well...that was interesting.

Once again, a huge thank you to Mark for his efforts. Karen and I really appreciate it.

The weather kept most of you away but Karen and I still had a great time. It was nice to meet up with those folks that did make it. We had great chats with the Camaro running teams Stevenson and Mantella (thanks to Mark) in the garages and we took away some nice t-shirts and hats. (thanks...well...you know who)

I managed to get a lot of pictures in the garage area, and around the great corners in the boot, in spite of the weather. I truly verified the effectiveness of Canon weather sealing this weekend.

We camped at the track this year, and that turned out to be a wise call on our part as we had a refuge to use to change out of wet clothes and cook hot meals. Our campsite neighbours were great. Long time Glen veterans of nearly 40 years of consecutive camping on the same spots. Amazing stories.

As usual, it'll take me a while to get through the pics from the real camera but here's a few, from the cell phone, of the spot we had.


Enjoying a cold one after setting up the fifth on a small cliff trackside in the boot.


The Spot.


Standing in the camper doorway you can see the entrance, sole and heel of the boot. (Cell phone lens is not wide enough to give true view)
