So after 4 years of modding Big Red I finally decided to man up and put him to the test! I joined a bunch of other Camaro5 members on the forum sponsored Gingerman Raceway HPDE (High Performance Driving Experience) track day this past Friday and OH MAN Big Red did not disappoint! It was a blast from beginning to end!

I entered in the novice group which included a mandatory class on driving basics and an instructor that rode with me in the passenger seat. We had 6 20 minute sessions through the day and by session 6 I had it down pretty good! I must say that Big Red is by far more capable than my driving abilities!

I think I did a pretty good job at preparing the car for this type of driving, but, brake upgrades and some more suspension work are in order if I decide to continue doing track days (which I think I already have!). 20 minutes of full out driving really heats up the brakes and tires!

Here's a couple pics and a link to a video of my session 4! Enjoy!
