There's nothing quite like a good track day - especially for those that have never done it before. I think someone mentioned getting their car dirty and rained on and saying it was "liberating".....that's what I like to hear!!

I'm glad everyone came out - thank you for your support and contributions to this online Camaro community. Sincerely.

And thanks to CGI for their professionalism and flexibility in working with us to plan this event!! Definitely coming back to these guys, after all the rave reviews!


Great to hear it, Mike!!


Woooo!!!!

I very much plan on participating next time, as well.



Now you know what it was really built for doing!! ...not just looking pretty...


Awesome....awesome to hear.

The bold above is why we do this: to let everyone actually use their cars. Chevy and the Camaro team has done such a fantastic job building these cars to be fast and track-capable...that the only real place you can safely get a true appreciation for them is on a track. I'm glad to hear another set of opened eyes!



Ouch, man!! I'm sorry to hear that!

Glad you're ok, and there's no permanent damage to the car. Also awesome to hear Halo Super Cars stepped up! Awesome!!
I know I'm in for next year!! Duff will be there 2 with a few extra belts!

I am reloading all my videos on Youtube. I will never use "protune" again. It made the quality horrible.

Check out session 6 about 8:50, you will see a red ZL1 spin out, we all seemed to want to do some dirt tracking... lol

Ok guys, I have my fingers back and can type again. I have been in a soft cast since Saturday night and have not been able to type without the single finger hunt and peck. Now I have a brace so things have gotten a little better.

To all the folks who thanked me for the help, you are more than welcome. That is the nice thing about this sport is we all want to be safe on the track and are all willing to help one another out.

Matt, videos look really cool. I still have a few to watch but I will get to them.

BTW guys you are supposed to keep it on the track.

I am ready for the next one, oh wait, I'm not actually. I have to wait for my injuries to heal, not related to this. Maybe by September.

I look forward to the next C5 one but maybe we can just check the schedules of the nearest tracks and see if there is a date agreeable and just meet there on our own. Of course if we had a road course/HPDE section on C5 that would make it easier.

The drag strip is like sniffing glue, it's cheap, it's a decent buzz, it doesn't last long and they are all the same.
Road racing is like China White Heroin, the buzz is stronger, the high lasts for hours, it's extremely addictive and they are all different.
I can't wait for my next
Track fix.

Good God I hope your fingers heal quick! I'm down for another HPDE day, I think I'm hooked! I think a road course/HPDE sticky is a great idea!

I believe the last two sessions were 1:52, there might have been a few faster laps, but I only concern myself or count it when I am consistent. Actually looks like session 4 was my fastest laps though. looks like about half way through, there is a guy I get behing and we just put about three laps down around 1:49 to 1:50, that is kind of exciting.

Hey at least our cars made it through all the sessions

I see the funny tags at the bottom of the thread have started as well. lol

I sure hope the person who won knows, that way they go to the camarofest

I highly doubt I will be going. I might drive out Saturday just to look at the Z28, but that is a long drive to just see the car....
