Camaro Racing Tribute to Camaro Cup/SuperStar racing series Camaro racing. Camaro Superstar / Camaro Cup !
Road Course racing series with Camaros.
Still going strong to this day in Sweden, with some dips in the years, but
started with the first race in the year 1975.
With many well known Guest drivers like Hans-Joachim Stuck and Keke Rosberg
as examples, Rosberg who said "This is almost more fun than Formula 1"
After he came in second place in a race!!
Camaro Super Star Cup
was driven before Fomula 1 several times, and was an real success for the
audience and the drivers, on tracks all over Europe, like Donington Park in
England, Spa in Belgium, Zandvoort in Netherland, Germany and Finland and
such, but it is an Swedish series originally.
It got "free" rules in 1982, with free engine modifications and any brand
could participate, and became Super Saloons, with more Silhouette type
racers like the last cool Group 5 cars. But Camaros where still run, they
just got wider... :D
And then came Camaro
Cup back in 1988 as an Standard Cup who was supposed to be a bit more
"cheap" class to run, With more original type of cars, and standard tires,
but they where still fast, and by no means an "street" car.
Today, in 2010 I believe, they changed name to V8 Thundercars and run
Trans-Am type tube-chassis with Camaro, Mustang or Challenger bodys, and
still is an standard/stock car type class where everything is equal.. And
the driver is the deciding factor, for the most part atleast...
