Camaro Pace Car at US GT Championship




FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
5TH GEN CAMARO

Braselton, GA (Feb 27, 2011)
5th Gen Camaro selected as Pace Car of the Inaugural Race for the US GT Championship sanctioned by the North American Road Racing Association (NARRA).

The 2010 Camaro of MTI Racing was selected to lead the field of Championship racecars at the 1st annual NARRA US GT Championship held at Road Atlanta. Driven by Chief Race Steward Terry Earwood, the MTI Racing Camaro was the perfect choice to control the pack of drivers itching to tear down the back straightaway at over 170mph.

Pace Car driver Earwood says, “Wow! I wish I had my helmet, I would’ve stayed out there and joined with the other cars!”

According to MTI Racing, the Camaro is equipped with a unique “Twin Charged” 1000hp engine. Twin 61mm rear-mount turbos feed a Magnuson TVS2300 Supercharger, blowing through a 6.2L LS3 engine with American Racing Headers. The Camaro also sports a host of suspension upgrades by MTI Racing.

The US GT Championship is an exciting grid of GT class racing cars including Vipers, Porsches, Lambos (Lamborghinis), Ferraris, Corvettes, BMWs. Hosted by North America’s most recognizable TV car guy, Tom Hnatiw, the US GT Series will be produced as web broadcasts and will be shot exclusively with GoPro Cameras. The series will also host coverage of the Dodge Viper Cup on the Versus network.

The series is pretty exciting. It travels around the country, but we will be involved with the East Coast events. And the season finale is on the Rolex Grand-Am course at DAYTONA!

Those are OZ Wheels. We are considering making a private label wheel in a similar style.
What do you think?

Love the idea. Not to criticize the OZ wheels (I said I liked them) and I'm no wheel designer but I would stick with the 6 double-spokes spaced like they are, flatten them out a little on the face, and lose a some offset to make them a little concave. Maybe lose a little more offset in the rear as those are wider.

I understand what you are saying. That'll give it a better look.

Will you be coming to VIR for the Grand AM Series? I believe that is in May. By the way I really enjoyed myself in Talladega Thanks.
