Bad Penny Camaro at Gingerman Raceway for Motorstate Challenge for Camaro Performers Magazine
I shared my '68 Camaro with David Pozzi at the Motorstate Challenge held at Gingerman Raceway in Michigan. I did pretty good, but as usual David drove the snot out of my car and turned in better times. In any event it was a blast. The next day we continued beating on the car at the Autocross.
Bad Penny Camaro - Sandhills ORC Standing Mile Run - 172.4 MPH
Took our '68 Camaro out to Nebraska for this year's SORC event. On Friday they have the half and full-mile shootouts. Last year we ran the half mile and knocked down 149 MPH. Could have been better, but with my gearing I had to shift to 5th right before the finish line. This year we ran the mile and had a best run of 172.4 MPH.. for reference that's only 2-3 seconds slower than the ZL1 Vette that ran before me. Considering my lack of aero I'm really happy with that speed. Car felt great, but damn, that's a LONG time to stay in it. :) -- Found that I was limited by my gearset and we hitting fuel cutoff (fifth gear) right at the finish line. So, if I want to go faster I will need to ditch the 3.90 gears and go to some 3.50s. Thanks to Optima Batteries for the invite!!
Pro Touring Camaro @ Thunderhill, 6/25/10 S5 1/2
This is my first day on a road course, and it's absolutely fantastic to be flogging my 1968 Camaro "Trackday." We're working on slow entries into the corner, and emphasizing apex to exit acceleration. Don't forget Part 2
