America's most prestigious Corvette award!



BENCHMARK Certification┬« - the ultimate standard for unrestored vehicles. 

In 1991, Bloomington Gold introduced the ultimate and most difficult judging category - The BENCHMARK Award. To achieve BENCHMARK status, an unrestored Corvette must attain GOLD Certification and excel in all four categories of SURVIVOR during the same weekend. To date, fewer than 200 Corvettes have received the prestigious BENCHMARK Award.
