2010 GT1 Camaro build

In the next few days, BEMCO FAB in Deland, Fl will begin construction of my new 2010 Camaro. The car will be based around the HOWE road circuit chassis and HOWE Camaro body as seen in the European Camaro Cup Series.

The Car will be powered by a SCHWANKE RACING ENGINES Chevy LS3 with a TEX T101 tranny and quickchange rear end. The car should come in at less than 2600# minus driver. It will have a GT-1 legal wing from MALLEN-ALLEY Racing and CCW 16" WHEELS.

Won't be taking any poles, but should be reliable, and a blast to drive

Need help with paint! Thinking silver with double orange stripes.

The Bemco Monte Carlo (105" wheelbase tube frame road race chassis) is getting re-bodied this summer as a 2011 Camaro like Ralph's. It just won overall at the SCCA Daytona Classic. It is powered by a Schwanke Racing Engines carbureted LS1.

Ralph's has Penske 8100 series.

Our Monte Carlo/soon Camaro has Penske 7500

The Corvette has 8100's.

The New Smyrna late model we are putting together has 7500's.

The dirt Sportsman for Volusia Speedway Park has Penske steel bodies

All built by Woody Wood at Bemco, they work great!
