Congratulations go out to Bentley Publishers authors and Corvette VIPs Dave McLellan and Jerry Burton on their induction this weekend into the 2012 Bloomington Gold Great Hall. Each year, the Selection Committee of the Bloomington Gold Great Hall select ten people and ten cars to be recognized for their pioneering efforts to promote the Corvette legacy.
For 2012, the Selection Committee decided to induct Dave McLellan for his crucial role in the technical history of the Corvette. "Succeeding Zora Arkus-Duntov as the 2nd Chief Engineer for Corvette, Mr. McLellan led the development of the C4 and C5 programs, including the record-setting ZR1 performance package." McLellan's story of his experience as Chief Engineer can be found in Corvette From The Inside.
The Selection Committee also decided to induct Jerry Burton, author of Zora Arkus-Duntov: The Legend Behind Corvette. "Jerry's involvement in the Corvette Phenomenon has many facets: author of many Corvette books, including the biography of Zora Arkus-Duntov; assisted in development of the National Corvette Museum; and former editor of Corvette Quarterly."
The inductions will take place as part of the Bloomington Gold Corvette event taking place at the Pheasant Run Resort in St. Charles, IL June 21 through 24. For more information on Bloomington Gold, visit the event website at http://bloomingtongold.com .
