In-Car Video from Daytona

Hey guys, I figured I would post this here so you could see a little Camaro vs Camaro battle during the GRAND-AM race at Daytona just a few weeks ago. The Mitchum Motorsports team walked away with two top10 finishes for their teams cars the #6.2 and the #6. Here you are riding along in the #6.2 car battling for 3rd place about one hour into the race with fellow Camaro driver Matt Bell in his Stevenson #9.




Let me know if you guys have any questions!

Joey

Sweet video Joey! I did have a question for you... with the 18" wheels, what gear did you guys use? And, what was your top speed on the front straight? I did 172 on my Ducati 848 last time I raced Daytona but I could only manage a 1:58 best lap.. :-) You guys were doing 50-51s yes?

Per the GRAND-AM rules we have to keep the OEM final drive ratio and also the stock transmission in the car, it is 'identical' to a street car SS with respect to gear ratio's. All of the GS cars had a top speed of right around 165-170mph, a few mph less without a draft, this was basically topping out 5th gear for us all the way to our mandatory fuel cut at 6800rpm. For lap times, my fastest lap during the race was a 1:58.1 and our fastest time of the weekend was in the 57's.

The cars that were doing 50-51's were the Rolex GT spec cars, with a few of them in qualifying trim dipping down into the 47's and 48's! I know it's not a Camaro but I also drove a Porsche in Rolex GT at Daytona which competes against the Autohaus and Stevenson Camaro's. To give you guys a reference here is a video of testing a few weeks ago in a Rolex Porsche GT3 Cup spec car, top speed is about 180mph. These cars all use sequential transmissions where there is no need for a clutch once the car gets rolling, 100% throttle no-lift upshifts, simply pull back the gear lever for upshift and push forward with rev-match for a downshift.

The Porsche is actually a NA 3.8liter that revs to about 8800rpm. What you are hearing is actually the transmission and not a turbo, the gears are straight cut with no synchros so you hear the transmission the whole time, at least in the video you do, not so much in the car while driving. Here is a shot of it at the Rolex 24 in it's new livery:

I was trying to figure out how to post it in my main subject but couldn't figure out the code! You learn something new everyday! Thanks!

If it is possible, record the entire races all season and post them on Camaro5 after the race. I am a huge Grand Am fan and am very willing to watch the entire race from a drivers perspective.... I'm sure nobody on the site would shed a tear seeing the in car camera....

Just a thought... If Grand Am won't televise every event why not do it yourself.... Maybe after enough attention, Grand Am will show Conti every race in its entirety... LIVE!!!

Agreed, I'd love to see as much in car Camaro Grand-Am racing as possible. I just sat here at work staring at my screen watching that video in awe.

Joey, thank you for posting that video and good luck this season!

I know it pales in comparison to the real thing, but it's cool to me because I've raced that track on Gran Turismo 5...

I can't post full race video's for a lot of reasons. GRAND-AM has SPEED TV coverage for almost all of the races, they are all recorded live with video and announcers. SPEED has the rights to the race coverage unless approved by GRAND-AM to upload video, not to mention the competitors here on the forums that could watch it as well

None of the GS car are allowed to run sequential transmissions. In Rolex GT all of the cars run sequential boxes, so yes the Camaro's use them as well in GT.

Yes the BOSS is one of our main competitors along with the BMW M3. There is a lot done to the Camaro to have it be considered a front running/competitive GRAND-AM GS class car. The car starts life as a stock Camaro that comes off the showroom floor, gets dipped, seem-welded, roll cage, carbon body panels such as doors/hood/trunk, racing brakes, new suspension, and several safety items. It is far from a stock Camaro but is very similar to what an enthusiast can do to theirs.
