As the world continues to grapple with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the auto industry has been inundated with delays and cancellations. One of the latest auto events forced to cancel is the Camaro-focused auto show CamaroCon, which recently announced that its annual gathering has been called off for 2020.
CamaroCon 2020 was originally slated for October 9th and 10th at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. This year’s event would have been the fourth annual gathering for the Camaro-focused car show.
“Tonight, LVMS made the call to cancel CamaroCon 2020 dates without the ability to offer new dates in 2020,” event organizers announced via Facebook. “I am looking into options for late 2020 in Temecula, CA to host a larger Camaros and Coffee gathering, but will not be nailing down any dates until state orders are lifted.”
The organizers added that “the CamaroCon family is looking forward to seeing everyone in 2021 for a fully realized 4th CamaroCon event.”
Framed as the “largest West Coast gathering for Camaro and Firebirds,” previous iterations of the annual car show have offered enthusiasts a chance at participating in a Show and Shine event, drag racing, autocross racing, and some time on the road course as well.
As we covered last month, Camaro Fest has also been canceled for 2020.
Beyond these enthusiast-driven events, the greater auto industry has also been forced to cancel or postpone several events as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. This includes the debut for the all-electric Cadillac Lyriq crossover, the next-level Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing and CT5-V Blackwing, and the GMC Hummer EV pickup truck. The New York International Auto Show, the Detroit Auto Show, and the Indy 500 have also been canceled.
Hopefully, efforts to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus will help to hasten the return of these auto-related events in the future.
