So, I lent one of my GoPro's to Joe on Saturday for four of his runs around the course. Here's the video I put together for him:



Enjoy!

CamaroCross Results from Camaro5FEST III




Everyone is well aware of the technical difficulties we encountered. The biggest issue was with the people at the Autocross. We had no idea that people absorb the low power radio waves used by the wireless timing eyes and cut the operational range. When we tested the setup we never thought about testing range with 80 spectators or considered the impact of cell phones :( That is the bad news. The good news is we know now and are well prepared for C5FEST IV at GOTCHA RaceWay
. We were able, capture car number, car description and times on a basic spreadsheet for just over 90 entrants. That means we are missing times for many entrants. It doesn't matter why. We know we disappointed the people we were working so hard to please. I am sincerely sorry for that.

How about Becky's 35.9 Becky was the FASTEST C5 Amateur Driver and the FTD for the ZL1 class. How do we know Becky's class? Too easy. Becky drove a bone stock ZL1 Becky, this is your Hot Shoe Driver Award!!!



They will have to do until they release a Camaro design. The 'other' driver in Becky's ZL1 was Rob Anderson Pedders USA / Wretched Motorsports but Rob is a 'professional' so he doesn't count We ran a private session at the end of day Friday for the Moderators. They turned in some unbelievable times. TAG ran a -12.94. He was so fast we didn't see it, but if he says that was it time we believe him Dragoneye ran a 29.37 in a bone stock ZL1, but has been MIA since the FEST If anyone knows his whereabouts please report the details to the F.B.I. The G Man ran a Gator and was just shy of Dragoneye's ZL1 time. Unfortunately the timing equipment failed along with the in car video, out of car video and stills

Pedders was the sponsor of the AC and will be again next year. With our responsibility as AC / C5 Hosts we do a lot of driver ride alongs, and courtesy runs for the C5 Fest VIP Guests. That gives our drivers a bit of an advantage as well as disadvantage. They work long hard hours to make the AC event possible. Professional Class Bragging Rights Fastest Time of the Day goes to Bruce Raymond's Camaro which ran a 32.46 on the fourth run. We could be wrong, but we think everyone that ran had at least four runs. Danny Popp did countless demos for drivers and a series of charity rides. Danny and the L/28 was flat out the FTD overall, but due to the number of runs Danny made we placed an * on his result. Dan Howard ran great with the third fastest event time. We want to acknowledge Jordan from JDP / Pfadt as the Fastest non-Pedders AC Sponsor Driver and Car. I think he had only five runs If Friday's final session had not been rained out who knows what the results would have been???

I do. We would have all had even MORE FUN. The numbers are important, but they take a distant second place to the main reason the C5 CamaroCross event exists. FUN. No matter how hot, no matter how long the wait, no matter how many cones were mangled the smiles at the end of the runs tell the story. We'll do this again next year with the same AC TEAM and equipment. It will run smoother and all the drivers will get more runs. More runs mean more fun. C5FEST IV can't come soon enough.

Thanks Pete glad to finally see how I did, Cant complain about 6th fastest amateur driver for my first time on a Auto X course. Though rob gave me a few good pointers after his ride along my first run and you can see my time drop significantly. Can't wait to work with you again next year and you will be hearing from me this winter for those bushings and alignment kit so I can be faster next year



P.S. is it SOON yet?

Thanks for posting the times Pete. Also big thanks to all who volunteered. Can't say it enough. Good to see at least I had a couple runs captured. We had a blast and look forward to next year.

With air support we can hold the FEST anywhere. The Ring on Friday and Monaco on Saturday sounds good to me. When we return to Lackland they can drop us at any Texas track for the Sunday runs. I am not sure if anyone has noticed, but there is a scientific expedition on the PEDDERS RED planet doing preliminary site selection work for a future FEST

My TEAM. You have no idea how many hours they have spent preparing the CamaroCross to make it a GREAT experience for YOU! Please be sure to track each one of them down and say THANK YOU while you are at C5FEST IV INDY.

The FEST opens Thursday August 1st and we can't wait. As always, PEDDERS is hosting the CamaroCross. We have a fabulous CamaroCross Administrative TEAM. We literally started working out the details for FEST IV Saturday late afternoon at FEST III.

You can expect more runs and more time with your fellow drivers and more fun. The classes are almost the same as last year. V6, V8 Stock, Modified and Super Modified. We decided to go with trophies this year and think you will be proud to display them. Of course we have 1st, 2nd and 3rd Place Trophies along with Fastest Time of the Day (FTD).

The award we believe to be truly special is the CamaroCross MVP. Last year Keith Silvin won our MVP. It wasn't awarded to him based on his excellent driving skills, which by the way have improved so be ware. He EARNED the award by helping everyone and doing everything. No food service. No problem. He made a sandwich run for the staff. Fellow racer has a problem. There was Kieth helping out. Worn out from the hot sun some of our tech and starter volunteers needed a break. Take a guess... That is the real spirit of Camaro5 and the CamaroCross.

Everyone involved with the event and everyone on my staff are all volunteers. They do it because they enjoy the community that is www.Camaro5.com Most automotive events are car events with social activities on the side. Camaro5FEST is the opposite. Make no mistake about it we do love our cars and drive the wheels off or polish through the paint, but the secret to the success of C5 is it a community

I also want to thank Bruce Raymond for the support he will provide the Pedders CamaroCross before during and after the event as well as coaching drivers that request assistance. Danny Popp will be on hand for course setup Thursday late morning and also available as a driving coach.

Joe Bella has spent a fair portion of his time on our conference calls. We appreciate his help, but in the end is a Moderator so we HAVE to say that ;P




Our CamaroCross MVP and the Camaro5 member that puts up the FTD will each go home with this cup. Are the winners going to fill them with champagne, beer or Gatorade?


The 1st Place finisher in all four classes will take home one of these.


A bit smaller than 1st, but still impressive 2nd Place Trophy for each class.



Smaller than the 2nd Place trophy, but worthy of standing on the podium with you is our 3rd Place trophy.

Classes:

C1 -- Stock V6: Any street licensed V6 5th Gen Camaro. We want to see more V-6's this year! CAI and/or Catback only, are allowed. No Headers, tune, engine, brake, or suspension modifications. No under 200 treadwear tires or drag radials.

C2 -- Stock V8: Any street licensed V8 5th Gen Camaro. CAI and/or Catback only, are allowed. No Headers, tune, engine, brake, or suspension modifications. No under 200 treadwear tires or drag radials.

C3 -- Modified: Any naturally aspirated street licensed 5th Gen Camaro (no nitrous).

C4 -- Super Modified: Any force inducted street licensed IRS 5th Gen Camaro. Unlimited mods. Includes 1LE, ZL1 and 2014 Z/28.

C5 -- Shop Car: Any Generation shop owned or non-street licensed car. Unlimited mods.
