***LG Motorsports Gen5 Camaro World Challenge Race Build***

Hey guys,

LG Motorsports is about to begin on a 2012 SCCA World Challenge Camaro build.

This is a full build layout of a Pro Level World Challenge Camaro race car. While some of the more 'trick' items will not be shown in detail we are going to give you a very in-depth look behind 'locked doors' of how a Camaro goes from the street to the track.



"Body in White" ready for pickup




On the trailer ready to come home




At the shop ready to be transported to the chassis plate




Going on the Chassis Plate with doors and hood removed




Stripping the Uni-body



Main roll hoop being fitted

We are still in process of building this particular car. We did purchase a completed car and have spent the last few weeks making it our own and testing.

Lou will be driving the #28 LG Motorsports GTS Camaro at this weekend's Long Beach GP in SCCA World Challenge.
