    2022 CHEVROLET CAMARO SS CONVERTIBLES PRESENTED AS 500 FESTIVAL EVENT CARS

    2022 CHEVROLET CAMARO SS CONVERTIBLES PRESENTED AS 500 FESTIVAL EVENT CARS

    A longtime tradition and another sign of the return of the Month of May took place April 4 as the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Chevrolet staged 50 identical 2022 Chevrolet Camaro SS convertibles on the main straightaway at IMS.

     

    The “Festival Event Cars” have reminded Indianapolis-area residents of the upcoming Indianapolis 500 since the 1960s, and this year’s fleet of unique Camaros again will turn heads as they are driven around Central Indiana.

     

    Presenting the cars were Allison Melangton, Penske Entertainment Senior Vice President; Pat Merna, 500 Festival Vice President Strategic Partnerships; and Todd Christensen, Chevrolet Motorsports Strategic Marketing and Operations.

     

    The Festival Event Cars are a unique option code based off the 2022 Chevrolet Camaro SS convertible and are powered by a 6.2-liter small block V-8, which offers 455 horsepower and 455 pound-feet of torque.

     

    The exterior of the car features Wild Cherry Tintcoat exterior paint with special decals from Chevrolet’s Performance Design Studio representing the 106th Running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge. The car also features a Ceramic White interior, a power-folding convertible top that can be lowered while driving at speeds up to 30 mph, Brembo front and rear performance brakes with red calipers and 20-inch black-painted aluminum wheels.

     

    “We’re glad to continue the tradition of providing Festival Event Cars to build excitement for the Indianapolis 500,” said Dean Stramer, Chevrolet Camaro marketing and advertising manager. “Our Chevrolet Design team did a great job making this year’s Camaro a stand-out.”

     

    The 106th Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge is scheduled for Sunday, May 29, 2022. Visit IMS.com for tickets and more information on all Month of May events and activities at IMS.

    CHEVROLET CONTINUES ‘MAKING STRIDES AGAINST BREAST CANCER’ IN OCTOBER AT TALLADEGA, TEXAS, AND MARTINSVILLE RACES

    CHEVROLET CONTINUES ‘MAKING STRIDES AGAINST BREAST CANCER’ IN OCTOBER AT TALLADEGA, TEXAS, AND MARTINSVILLE RACES

    DETROIT – For Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Chevrolet again supported the American Cancer Society by contributing to the cause $350 for every lap run under caution, with a maximum of $50,000, during three NASCAR Cup Series races last October.

    To also help raise awareness, a specially-themed pink “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 served as the pace car at the NASCAR Cup Series races at Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama on Oct. 3, Texas Motor Speedway on Oct. 17, and Martinsville Speedway in Virginia on Oct. 31. Chevrolet also hosted a limited number of breast cancer survivors and guests at Talladega and Texas, offering them a fun-filled afternoon at the track.

    “We are very proud to partner with the American Cancer Society and carry the ACS logo on the pace car during October races,” said Sean Finegan, director, Chevrolet Motorsports Marketing and Activation. “The responses we receive at the tracks are always so positive, and we’re very humbled that we’re able to participate in this cause.”

    [2021] was the 11th consecutive year Chevrolet has partnered with the American Cancer Society’s “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” initiative through dealership walks, national test drive promotions and national service rebate promotions. Chevrolet also donated $5 toward the fight against breast cancer [in October] with every post on Twitter, Instagram and TikTok using the hashtag #WeDriveFor, up to $110,000.

    The Mid-Engine Camaro is Coming in 2023

    The Mid-Engine Camaro is Coming in 2023

    At the beginning of the month, Chevrolet made a big announcement regarding the 2023 Camaro. Much like the legendary C8 Corvette, the 2023 Camaro will sport a mid-engine layout, adding a second mid-engine sports car to the Chevrolet line-up. 

    So, what's in store for the Camaro's V8 engine? Car Buzz has reported that it is likely Chevrolet will downsize the engine, offering a turbocharged four-cylinder and V6 options. Otherwise, the Camaro would compete against the mid-engine Corvette, in which case you'd be likely to just get the Corvette.

    The rumor mill is buzzing that an all-electric Camaro is likely in 2023, making this new mid-engine Chevrolet option a smaller and lighter version compared to the Corvette. It may even offer a manual option, unlike the Corvette.

    Several renderings have popped up on the internet, including a video posted by 3D designer and animator, Rostilav Prokop. The configuration is possibly the most believable we've seen. It combines the front end and rear fascia of the 2019 Camaro with the C8 Mid-Engine Corvette.
