Thanks guy for all the comments guys..But I must say they did treat the cars with respect!!..They drove them Fast but did'nt beat on them..not with me standing 20' away the hole time...They gave me all the insurance I wanted just in case .And Mike's Mustang after it ran off the track.The producer ran up to him and said they would fix and take care of it within seconds of it happing.
The car has been fixed and Mike is happy now..I would do it again. And a special thanks to Hotchkis and H-Team for letting me be a part of this!...And yes you did see Matt get beat by my Stock Camaro SS Lol...!!

Stock my Ass!!..That was funny!!

Your car did great! I want my car to be on TV!

Never watched the show before though, I thought it was alright. US Top Gear is better IMO.

OP, Great show last night!!! I bet you are glad Adam didn't drive your car even if they did fix the mustang... I thought Dan Neal was pretty complimentary of the Camaro except for the Bismark comment. The only way the show would have been better is if the mustang completed the lap and the Camaro still won...either way, very cool and both Camaros were easily the best looking cars on the show!

They were complaining how the camaro would get beat by the Charger if it did not have all the mods. I think the bigger tires hurt the performance while the suspension of course helps. I would really like to see how the camaro would compare stock for stock.

With all due respect to Don, with equal drivers the Mustang would have beat all of the cars there. It's an animal.

The Camaro vs. Charger comparison was much more a Dan vs. Matt duel. The driver is such big a factor that the times that they turned don't reflect the real capability of either car.

I hope Dan didn't scratch your trunk when he dropped the keys on it.

Oh I am sure he knows. I have seen the car in person and it sounds sick! Not a fan of the color at all though.

Carl your right this car is Fast As Hell With A Super Charger under the Hood!! Mike the Owner is my New Freind of mine we bash each other on FB all the time. So it made it even more fun...But in a race he is way faster to my NA 426Hp car to his over 500Hp car.But at the NMRA Hotchkis Autocross I beat him on Saturday...! But he did have a better time Sunday...But not by much. It was fun to be apart of it and see how it all comes together.Carl can wait again to see your Camaro on the track!!You Might have to race Mike and see if your Hot Rod can put away the Blue Beast!!

We wanted to see Matt loose and we did!!

John Salley or any person on the street has twice the knowledge as Matt Farah. Farah's opinions are biased and he talks #*@& about the cars he reviews before he even drives them. If your going to have a website and youtube channel performing car reviews, then you should give every car an honest shake.

Don – We’re glad you could be there for the track time and you got the airtime too! It was good for everyone involved. The show was cool! It was good to see you everyone on the show to help further promote the hobby.

I'm growing tired of Top Gear's silly and scripted challenges and dialogue. It's the same thing over and over and it's getting stale. It's obviously a better produced show, but they are losing my interest with the direction they are going with the show.

I've grown to appreciate the car show more because they actually talk about cars (not what old POS the hosts are going to pick for a challenge or some ridiculously scripted and edited "race"). I hope it lasts.

Yeah, I just love the cinematography of Top Gear, the UK one is way better though. This show seemed a little boring IMO.
