What, you aren’t getting the ol’ adrenaline rush walking the vast expanse that is the Indianapolis Motor Speedway taking in all things Corvette at this year’s Bloomington Gold? What that’s just not enough? Ok, we have something that is guaranteed to quicken your heartbeat and bring you to the verge of soiling your pants…in a good way!
There is the Chevrolet Ride and Drive Experience where you are given the chance to ride around the Indianapolis Speedway Interior Race Course. If you wish to do this then you must first partake in the Chevy Ride ‘n’ Drive before “qualifying” for the GoldSpeed. You will be riding in a new Corvette prepped and driven by the hot shoes from the Ron Fellows Driving Experience. Their drivers take you on a portion of the road course, sprint down a straight to a series of corners, slow at the back end, come out and do another series of corners, then back to a same straight and do hard corners, then back to a same straight and do a hard braking. Hell that sounds like fun just reading the brochure, but for the lucky ones who are out there livin’ the experience, well that’s worth the price of admission.
For those that just have to drive their own car around the vaunted Indy oval there is the GoldLaps which will allow you to drive your own Vette (60 mph max!) for two laps around the track. Spots are limited so we imagine you better get over to the Tack Office.
