Post up your Pfadt Track Assault Pictures!

Hey everyone! Thanks so much for your support of our track day at Camaro5Fest! We had a blast all weekend and have finally had a chance to sort through the pictures.

First off, we would like to thank some people who made the event possible and run so smoothly. The gentlemen from Richard Childress Racing were fantastic to share tent space with. Their line of turn key tuner cars is sure to be a huge hit in the Camaro world, watch out for their RC3 cars on the street. Not only do they sport impressive power numbers but have the looks and suspension to back it up as well. They drove the car all the way out from North Carolina for the Fest, and were an invaluable asset all through the weekend.





Eric@Torq was great help setting up all weekend, and ran like a Madman at the Autox. Hats off to a great guy, and a great vendor.

Speaking of driving like a Madman, Thanks to Michael Travers for representing our products so effectively in his first ever autox! At the end of the afternoon session on Saturday we pulled our friend and driver Danny Popp, Eric from Torq and Michael aside for a victory photoshoot.



Courtesy Chevrolet and GMPP were great to work with all weekend! After setting up all day Tuesday, and handing out T Shirts to adoring Chevy fans all day Friday and Saturday, Todd Garrett and his team were still in great spirits! The gentlemen in the yellow shirts also had the coolest engine stands!



Now onto the fun stuff! We would love to see everyones favorite picture from the track day! We were too busy with logistics to really get busy with the cameras, so we would love to see what you guys took! Here is the best picture we got from the morning session:



Finally, thanks so much to all the moderators at C5 for putting on a tremendously smooth event. You guys were fantastic every step of the way and really allowed fantastic access to members of this community. We had a great time, and have finally caught up on some of the sleep we missed this week!

I'm hoping you got a shot or two of mine, like you I was running around all day and even when I did get my camera out i was taking shots of everyone else!

Had an amazing time at the pfadt course! Thanks again to everyone that made it happen!

No pictures to share but many thanks for a fun and educational experience. In-car coaches were great. It was clear they were enjoying their role in helping us newbies. I certainly appreciate the track time and the coaching. I'm now a much better Camaro driver. thank you.

Yeah, I also forgot to put my SD card back in my GoPro before I left the hotel Friday morning. So I didn't get any video running around the track :(

Had a blast until my car broke. Here's a few pics I was able to get.

We were told to be there at 7:00 and 8 of us were; it was cold that morning.

Right after that we were going to our cars to get ready to go out on the track. I got the GoPro video from the camera I had on the top of my windshield and hopefully in the next couple of days I'll be able to get it edited and post some clips.

Revo's Red Monster, Pumpkin driven by Mercury Man, and an unknown ABM beauty made the shots that I took as I spent most of my time getting ready for my group and lining up after the first group went. I did get a few of Jeff Bucknum taking Revo's Fiancee for a spin, but those are posted in his build thread (REVO1).

I don't have many photos to post, but I do have a question...

I know a lot of road courses have vinyl stickers of the layout of the track for sale and a lot of guys put them on their window as kind of a "badge of honor" type thing. Does Firebird have those kinds of stickers for this particular course as well?

All
If you are interested in seeing some pictures from the Friday morning PFADT racing, check out my wifes website....juliedejacphotography.com. There are too many to post here (227 to be exact). Got some of just about everyone though.

You can download the digital file for free or you can order pictures pretty cheap.

Hope you enjoy.

BTW...all the bad pics are ones I took. Someone had to take pictures while my wife was racing !! LOL

I love seeing the chrome blower twist from the torque on the gear shift (2.10) coming down the straight away and then twisting on the heal / toe down shifts. (not well executed at the time)

Looking great Merc! I'm glad you got some time to get these up online. I wish I wasn't pinned at the trailer and had some time to come drive at the event!

PS. Go Canucks Go.
