The 2011 Camaro 2SS/RS Convertible is the 22nd Chevrolet and the seventh Camaro chosen to pace “the greatest spectacle in racing.” Adding to the rich heritage is the fact that 2011 will mark the 100th anniversary of the Indianapolis 500, as well as Chevrolet’s centennial year.
To commemorate this special designation, Chevrolet also announced plans to auction the first of 50 Indianapolis Festival Committee Cars. The auction for this first festival committee car takes place Saturday evening, January 22, 2011, during SPEED’s live coverage of the Barrett-Jackson event. The vehicle carries lot number 1284 and bids can be submitted at the auction in person or online (visit Barrett-Jackson’s website -- http://www.barrett-jackson.com/ -- for further details regarding online bidding).
Chevrolet will donate full proceeds of the auction to the David Foster Foundation -- http://www.davidfosterfoundation.org -- a charity devoted to supporting families with children in need of life-saving organ transplants. David Foster, the 15-time Grammy winning music producer and songwriter, founded the organization in his native Canada.
