As featured on Homepage.

Camaro race cars were out in force for the most recent Continental Tire Challenge and the Roles 24 Hour Race.

The Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge race at Daytona on Jan. 29, 2010 featured six Camaro race cars in the field. Stevenson Motorsports' two Camaros finished 5th and 8th overall, Momentum Race Group's two Camaro finished 10th and 74th overall, and TC Motorsports' two Camaros finished 54th and 57th overall.

In the Roles 24 Hour at Daytona on Jan. 30, 2010, Stevenson Motorsports again entered the field with two Camaros. The car driven by David/Liddell/Magnussen finished in 11th place overall, while the other car piloted by Bell/Borkowski/Refenning/Schaldach came in at 17th. Congrats to all the race teams and their drivers!

The were impressive in both races. They didn't win but serve notice that they will be contenders in both series. Just some fine tuning as the series go on. Don't be surprised if either get their first wins this year. Also feel free to download and use as wallpaper. I'll post more pics soon

In the Rolex series a Mazda RX8 took first place after one of the Camaro and a Porsche went to the garage for transmission replacement after leading for most of the race until the 18th hour. In the Continental Tire Challenge a BMW took the win. The full results can be view at Grand-am.com or just google Grand American racing series.

At least this wing actually has a PURPOSE :D Unlike ricers with similar sized wings.

As per SMPDude from this thread:
http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...highlight=gt.r


All body panels on these car are the same a factory. We even use the factory front and rear poly bumper covers. They do not run the LS3 Combo. They are running the LS6 engines with the X-trac gearbox (Similar to the Corvettes). The GTO Chassis's are a little different than the GTO chassis's. The GTO's were a little shorter.
The reason for reusing the GXP.R chassis was not so much a cost issue as much as already having the bugs worked out of this chassis design and no need to replace a chassis that has and does work as good as these. Plus the wheels base and width are the same from the GXP.R and the Camaro.

The GS cars in the Former Koni Series are Bone Stock cars except for the Brake upgrades, shocks, springs, Roll cage, sway bars and exhaust (no Cats allowed). They run Bone Stock suspension and Drive trains. We will be Running the #6 Sunoco Camaro and the #9 Camaro in that series as well.

The Grand Am Camaro looks the best, all the others ones paint schemes look horrible.
