Awesome car, but I liked the concept a bit better.

The Fourth Gen Sunoco Camaro is one of my top 5 faves.

Its going to be a great event. I build the dampers on this and most of the others that are hitting the track this weekend. I have worked track support at alot of these races over the past 3 years. It will be very cool to see the new Camaro, mustang and challenger togeather.

That's right... Good luck guys!
Link to grand-am.com timing scoring page
http://laptrax02.racersites-cluster....ew.jsp?sid=686

after 15 laps, Donohue has improved position 2 places and put Roush behind him where he belongs

after 20 laps, from 13th to 8th place

dropped back after a caution ~ 22nd lap, but it looks like the car has the capability of being very competitive.

33 laps and he's behind Roush again, I think Donohue pitted during caution but Roush didn't? They should have televised this, looks like some good racing!

They're racing now...

http://laptrax02.racersites-cluster....SERIES=K&TEST=

3rd place after 34 laps... Passed Roush... Again!

...After 40 laps, it's obvious they have a very good car on their hands, and Donohue is doing a great job! they're gonna be a force to be reckoned with next year.

He's pushing the 2nd place Porsche around the track now, and 5 seconds behind the leader... Is anyone else watching the timing page?

edit: Looks like something broke around lap 57, but they were sure pushing the leaders up to that point! Congrats guys, looks like you have a very competitive car, next year should be good.

Looking forward to your comments, and hope someone was taping, wish I could have made it.

Yeah, but it was a good race to that point... Donohue took the car from 13th starting place to 3rd place at one point with some great lap times up to mid-race, then it looks like there was a pit and driver change, and Bucknum was holding his own and running decent lap times till the 57th lap.

Me too. Considering how much time they've had to get the car ready, and that they were holding their own to mid-race, I bet they're very pleased... I am

Just got back in from the race and though I would give you guys a little behind the scenes update.
Yes the car did break. David noticed the clutch was getting slow to release, so he was told to just take it easy and let’s just see how it does. Then we made a pit stop and driver change. Jeff took the wheel and was off. Shortly after that he radio in and stated that the clutch was on the floor and not returning. He ran a couple of laps with no clutch, in his words “you can do that if you know how to drive”, lol. That was great Jeff…… But we told him to bring it in hoping that it would be a quick fix. After opening the hood we saw that all the Clutch/brake fluid was gone, so we took it to the garage, that is when we found something in the bell housing let go. So it was time to park it.
My hat is off to Jeff and David for their excellent job of driving the past few day and being able to really relay back to the crew what they were feeling so that we could make the changes.
To answer one of the questions, yes the rear of the car was very high. That was in an effort to help massive vibration that started off in the shake down run and was still present in the first practice. Raising the rear did help but there is still a lot of research and testing to be done to find and fix that issue. Bill Riley and his guys were there to help out in any way possible, even going to the extra to help provide some spare parts, just in case. Thanks to you Bill and your guys for all your hard work and help.
I believe that after these few issues are address and fixed the 2010 Camaro will be a very completive car next season.
I would also like to say thanks to everyone who stopped by and talked with us and the drivers, you guys, the fans, are what makes this sport so much more fun and interesting.

Thanks for the update, glad it wasn't more serious. I watched the timing page, did you pit at 1st yellow?

I imagine you got the ford boys sweating over next year... Tell everyone congrats on a very impressive race. It's amazing what you can read from timing and scoring page

Does it look like the team will stay intact for next season?

Bucknum was floating the gears... he da man! Sure couldn't tell there was a problem from his lap times.

Yes we did pit in the first caution, but the driver change was not till later. I think we completed about 2:15 of the 4hr race.
We will be discussing the team and such with in the next week or so. We have a GT race in Florida to worry about this week. We are fighting to keep second in there for the year.

I watched the video...You'll have 2 GT Camaro's next year? You definitely need to keep in touch with us here.

First off, congrats to the whole Stevenson team for a great showing today. It was fantastic to see a new Camaro out there and to get off to such a great start. Can't wait for 2010.

I drove up to VIR in my Z28 for the race today and took over 50 pictures of the race. I also shot a video of the pit demo that occurred right before the race and uploaded it to YouTube.

Here's a few pictures of the car. The full set of 50+ photos from today's race can be found in the Webshots link further down.

Enjoy!

You will be at Homestead next weekend? Speed TV is actually covering that one, I can't wait to see the camaro in action.

Thanks for all the insider info!

P.S. whats it like actually being at the track to watch one of these races? My dad says its not as nice as lets say a nascar race because you only see the cars as they pass the one turn your sitting near.
