GRAND-AM in car video from Barber

I haven't posted here in a while so I figured I'd show some in-car from this past weekend at Barber. There was a ton of wrecks and the race was more like demolition derby than professionals actually racing. Anyways, the #62 Camaro GS.R finished 7th however I ran with only 20psi of fuel pressure rather than the standard 70-75psi which put us down on power considerably compared to the rest of the field. Enough talking, here is the video:

Way to make my Friday morning Joey!! That was awesome. It's very fun watching, but I know you were working your ass off. Fighting traffic, track, rain, wind, hail, tornados and everything else in that video.. geesh. Love hearing that engine wind through the gears like that!

Thanks for that perspective. It was hard to tell from the grass banks how much the rain was affecting you all. Like you said the first few laps were disgraceful by some folks but the field of 65 cars was insane. Great racing throughout however. Thanks again

Here's a few photos of the race. Note one of the Camaros is a little more ventilated than it should be

I see the problem, it wasn't a fuel pressure issue, it was a Ford issue. Hope to see you guys a Watkins Glen this year.
