2010 Camaro SS Enters Formula DRIFT Championship
Posted by: admin In: Main ()
The 2010 Camaro has only been on the market for 6 months, but is already being used as the platform for several race series racecars, including the NASA Championships and now Formula DRIFT Championship (North America’s professional drifting championship). BR Racing has teamed up with Conrad Gunewald Racing to prepare a custom 2010 Camaro for competition in the 2010 Formula Drift Championship series. Says Congrad Gunewald, driver and owner of Congrad Gunewald Racing:
“I am very excited to be able to drive such an iconic American muscle car in the Formula DRIFT Championship. Our main goal is to have the Camaro ready for the 2009 SEMA show but our preseason testing should start immediately after the show. I have a great amount of confidence that BR Racing and Luke Lonberger can build this Camaro into a highly competitive car and I look forward to getting back out on the track.”
The car’s tire sponsorship will be with Hankook Tire Corporation and the car will use Hankook Ventus R-S3 tires wrapped around a set of custom Forgeline 3-piece wheels. Eibach’s Multi-Pro-R2 two-way adjustable dampers and coilovers will guide the car’s handling and a GM Performance LS-A supercharged 6.2L V8 (controlled by AEM Universal EMS) will power the car with an expected 600+ rwhp. The body will be custom fabricated with carbon fiber from Seibon Carbon.
Those attending the 2009 SEMA show in November are in luck as this drift car will be displayed at the show.
