I'll get some video of me driving soon as well - nowhere near as impressive but holy crap was it fun. It was my first time ever on a track, and I think I just might be getting addicted.
Welcome to my addiction M8! LOL! Great video... thanks!

I just checked out your photobucket album, and the pics were great, loved the scenery. Thanks for sharing the experience with everyone.

That was Great! Nice driving. You still have the lowering springs on that or do you have coilovers? What tires are you running that on?

How did you get lucky enough to have Jeff Bucknum drive your Camaro around that track? I just got done watching the Grand Am Continental race where Jeff was racing last Saturday. Man, I wish I was there!

I know how you feel. My addiction started with me on my bike (see avatar pic), and now has progressed to the camaro. Did one last year, and doing 2 possibly 3 this year

Loved it when he passed the Mustang and then the Vette. Everyone on the track seemed very cool.

It's amazing to see what someone who REALLY knows what they're doing can do with these cars (not that you don't, but I think you know what I mean). I'd love to take lessons on a track like this to learn how to get the most of my car.

Thanks so much for sharing that video. Your car rocks!

When do we get to see you take it around?
You should join us at Mid-Ohio this October. That track (Mid-Ohio) adds another element that makes it even better ...elevation

Ya, I was wondering what mods he's done as well, if any. It sounded stock.

I know I was impressed with mine at mid-ohio last year. My buddy (who is a ford guy) who used to race was SCCA was impressed when he took it for "closed coarse" run, that scared the crap out of me.

Tires are stock, but it's had some modifications (Might be the sound quality on the GoPro making it sound stock though - that sucker SCREAMS!)

2.9L Whipple SC
Kooks custom long tubes
Solo Performance Mach X Catback
Pfadt suspension (Sways, Springs, Trailing Arms)

Jeff B was saying the main thing he'd upgrade next are the brake pads/rotors. He got on it really hard on the second lap and they started getting hot right away

It's a GoPro Hero. Looks like a lot of the folks at the track day had them mounted - a few even had 2 so they could to in front and in back. I have the motorsports kit which came with an awesome suction cup mount. Had it stuck right to the rear quarter window.

Stock tires (with a lot less rubber now!) and Pfadt springs

Seriously! He gave a pre-session speech with some driving tips, and said he'd be there all day to hang out and drive around. I asked him if he had a car for the instructor session and he said "let's hop in yours!"
