Bloomington Gold is recognized world wide among car owners for its prestigious judging process of Corvettes and the authentication a Bloomington Gold Certification brings to a Corvette. Each year, Corvette owners bring their Corvettes to be judged for Certification. The reason for doing so are many, but each has one final goal: to have their car be awarded either Gold Certification, Survivor or the much coveted Benchmark award.

Our highly qualified judges are known for their knowledge, courtesy and consistency.

Benchmark®

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 5% of the Corvettes that have been Certified have received the prestigious BENCHMARK Award. 

To learn more about achieving BENCHMARK Certification®, the following brochures will be helpful:

 Registration Fees

$200 for each BENCHMARK registration

Remember! Entrants must be judged in both Survivor and Certification during the same weekend. Only Corvettes qualifying in ALL four of the  categories of Survivor, as well as the 10 mile road test and receiving Gold Certification at the same Bloomington Gold event will be awarded the highly coveted and prestigious Benchmark award.
