Info here!

This year, DeLorean is one of the featured marque at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Celebration of Automobiles. Entry in this show is by invitation-only and we plan on pulling out all the stops. With the combined participation of the IN DMC Club and the DeLorean Club o...f Ohio, we hope to have 30 (yes, I said THIRTY) DeLoreans in attendance. Did I forget to mention that we’ll have FACTORY support? Many of you have met Dave and Julee Swingle from DMC Midwest, who will be attending. Dave is planning on bringing DMC Houston’s Stage 3 car and (drum roll please) the new Electric DeLorean!

The cost of the show is $50 per car. For your $50, you receive parking, gate entrance, a dash plaque and the opportunity to DRIVE A LAP AROUND THE TRACK OF THE IMS. With this much stainless steel, be sure to bring your sunglasses. There will also be plenty of other exotics to see and things to do, if you or your guest gets tired of looking at DeLoreans… (As if!)

To ensure we’re parked as a group, we will be registering everyone at the same time. Please mail your check for $50, made payable to the IMS Automobile Festival, no later than April 20th to the following address:
Jason Sharkey
2124 E 100 S
Lebanon, IN 46052

We will meet early Saturday morning at the Boone County Fairgrounds in Lebanon, and drive as a group(LEAVING AT 9AM DONT BE LATE!!) to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. (Only 30 minutes away) Should anyone have minor mechanical difficulties, we will have tools available.

Seriously, you’ll be kicking yourself for years if you miss this show…

(While they last) there is a block of rooms at the Holiday Inn Express in Lebanon IN,
335 North Mt. Zion Rd, Lebanon, Indiana 46052
(765) 483-4100

I did not know about this discounted rate until calling to book a room. The lady asked me if I was a part of a block of rooms. I did not think so until she said the IN-DMC Indy Group. So I said Yes and got the discounted rate of $89.99. Normal rates are $100 but online the cheapest available is $154.00.

Hello All,

I want to send out a thank you to all of you that participated in our IMS event. You all made it a smash hit!! I have already gotten” thank you’s” from IMS and have been told that we were welcome back as they very impressed with the Delorean outcome and it participants. Its success has kindled my fire for running the national show. It has been suggested that, as DCS is every other year, we should actively participate in this IMS event every off year making a “national Delorean event” every year. What do you all think? Should we turn this in to a bi-annual tradition?

We at IN-DMC are having an “After Action Meeting” to create an official “After Action Report” this coming Saturday morning to review the successes and things in need of improvement, from the event. We are creating a questionnaire and a thank you letter to all of you. The questionnaire will have the event broken down into sections with a request from all of you to comment on all aspects of the event. Please keep in mind that this is the first event that IN-DMC has done but to make the next event better, we need your input.

I will try to put together a CD with collected photos from the event. Due to one of our members, we will have access to the 3,000 photos taken by the official IMS photographers when we made out lap. It may take a few weeks but they will be available to those who ask.

It was a true honor to have Steven Wynn and his wife present. Be sure you let Dave and Julee Swingle know just how much we all appreciate them. People like them make a hobby like this much more enjoyable.

Lastly, I would like to send a special thanks to Rick (Keebler) Vermillion and Jeff Thomas for a job well done. Without either one of these guys the event would not have been a success. I would also like to thank Josh Quellhorst for keeping everybody “up-to-date” on the happenings of the event….GOOD JOB.

Please feel free to call me any time about this.

Jason Sharkey

President, IN-DMC

Here is the video I created from 2 Delorean-mounted GoPro Cameras. However, I have been having trouble finding music that can be legally attached to it. Would someone out there point me in the right direction? YouTube audioswap doesn't have any selections I found that will fill the whole video....I will probably need two songs added to fill the 8:45 length...thanks and enjoy!
