Camaro 1LE being prepped for SCCA T2 Racing

Thought everyone would enjoy this video. Apparently it beat the T2 class record for the track they were at, during trials and they think they can still get more out of it.

It's reminiscent of a 60's Z28 Trans Am racecar Smokey Yunick #13.

It is great seeing muscle being able to handle. A fast SCCA time is a huge deal. When I go to events, I do ride alongs with some muscle guys, and they consistently get slower times than the guys like me with our 100hp Miata's (hate me, it's a drivers car and I don't care about your opinions.) I have had the opportunity to ride in a C4 Vette that had suspension work done, and it ran some of the quickest times of the day, and did run fastest in his class. I would die to drive one of these 1LE's.

It used to be Beaver Run. Obviously by setting a new track record, he got Pole position for the race.

This was less than 24 hours after the car was finished for race prep.. amazing

Todd did a great job there. the only reason he took second is the race was called due to weather.

Here are a few pics of the T2 car as well as his world challenge car.

Awesome!
Hope to see lots of Camaro's at the Brainerd International Raceway hosted Muscle Car Shootout drags and SCCA Trans-Am races during the Aug. 31st - Sept. 2nd weekend.
Will be really cool to see more ZL1, 1LE/SS Camaro's during this combo event.

Here are a few more from C5F3. No he doesn't race with the OEM SS rims. Those are my extra set on there because he needed all his rims and rubber for racing his World Challenge Car @ Mid-Ohio that weekend.

Ya, i got to do a little work on your car as well. They put the FULL JUSTICE Package on yours..... then I saw it back in there for a little more work, I didn't get involved in any of that.

I enjoyed volunteering time on your car.

That is one great looking and sounding race car. Just pure meanness and bad to the bone. Good luck! Thanks for the video and loved the comments.
I have been trying to follow Rolex GrandAm and ALMS on TV (Speed and Espn2). I got to see the Stephenson Camaro win their race this past weekend. The ALMS vettes doing pretty well and I am sure they working on their pit stop times.
My point is that I had not heard of SCCA T2 Racing (must be Southern Cal local and not televised nationally where I could see the races. Darn!

PS: Outstanding work at C5Fest3 everyone. I really enjoyed it. Unfortunately, I getting too old, or out of shape, to handle the heat though. Amazing collection of Camaros and just plain fine people that I had the chance to meet while I was there. I would love to have met more. Looking forward to LSX shootout in October at same Indy track.

Sir, I am honored to know that you even laid a finger on my car. You have my gratitude.

What size wheels does he run and where can we get the 1LE package ?

One of my friends I went to high school was telling me the other day that her dentist races Camaros. She sent me a link to his video.... which was this one on Camaro5! Holy smokes, small world. I think I saw this car this past weekend at the Flint Back to the Bricks show.

Good luck at the SCCA runoffs!
