America's most prestigious Corvette award!

 BENCHMARK® - 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.

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, a road test and receiving Gold Certification at the same Bloomington Gold event will be awarded the highly coveted and prestigious Benchmark award.
