Everyone at the AutoCross were awesome and did va fantastic job!! I made the finals but had to take off early and with the weather every thing got moved out to the right. But that's life. I had 6 great runs Friday am and worked the corner. Which was fun getting to see the racers up close and personal.

TBone im with you ! Gmann if you were so dammed worried about running Sat, then you should have drove your happy butt over to check standings and support your other Camaro brother's & sisters. You only lived 20 miles away. REALLY! !

Camaro Cross Team ....A+++++
Great Job !!!

T-Bone I hope you're coming to Texas. I want a rematch. Well I guess a grudge match since you had to drop out. Don't have a grudge just like to do a heads up comparison since we've now met. How did the camber plates work for you on the ride home?
Marine, are you the one that got first in V8 modified?

The drag strip is like sniffing glue, it's cheap, it's a decent buzz, it doesn't last long and they are all the same.
Road racing is like China White Heroin, the buzz is stronger, the high lasts for hours, it's extremely addictive and they are all different.
I can't wait for my next

I thought the team did awesome. A big thank you from a newbie to the event. Granted this was my first fest, and my first Camaro cross, but it taught me a lot more about my car. Can't wait for Texas.

Having only watched, I thought everything was very well done. There was 1 or 2 timing errors that were caught immediately by the autocross team and the drivers were thrown immediately back into line to run again. I know several of the team personally, and they all care about this event A LOT.

To stand in the sun, stay standing most of the time, and be around hot vehicles and exhaust, I tip my cap to all of you who made this work for the most part, flawlessly.

98% of the people that participated as our guests in the CamaroCross had a wonderful experience. 100% of the CamaroCross TEAM that worked at CamaroFEST V gave their best effort to the event and should be as proud of themselves as I am of them.



If you have an issue related to the Camaro5FEST IV CamaroCross I would like to hear from you. My mobile number is 616.834.8100 or PGB@PeddersUSA.com We are starting our preparations for the C5FEST V CamaroCross next week and we'll put it on our agenda.

Many thanks to the CamaroCross team for putting on this wonderful event and ensuring that everything worked fluidly! I had a blast and can't wait to do it again. As far as GoPro videos go, I have two uploaded so far (I need to edit the Friday AM ones still). I loaned out my third GoPro to a red SS from New York, so if you are reading this, I'd love to see your runs. Enjoy!

I really enjoyed watching the Friday PM heats. Especially the battle between the Lingenfelter car and I believe it was the white Detroit Speed Inc car.
I was starting to regret not doing the racing when our club mate crashed his red ZL1...
Overall a great event though.

Good grief did it stink that I didn't have my car this year.

You'd better believe I'm going to be there next year to participate!!!

Hey everyone, despite how things ended up Saturday, I had a blast at CamaroCross. I had low expectations considering it was a short and rather simple course, but once I got out there, it was fun as hell. I know, as usual, not everything went to plan, but I thought most of you did a great job rolling with the punches and not letting the pressure get to you. If I'm able to make it to Houston next year, I might considering helping out if needed. I think the more experienced autocrossers you have around, the better since so many of the competitors had never done it before and needed a lot of help and advice. I'd like to see that safety crew stay parked the whole day! All in all, great job.

This was my first Fest and first autocross and I must say....I am HOOKED! I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of both participating and spectating! Special thanks to Pedders Pete and his team for all their hard work and pulling off a great event! Also thanks to Bruce at Raymond's for "Pedderizing" Big Red, it really made a difference in the car! I can't wait to do it all over again at Fest V! Here's a video from my iphone of one of Danny Pop's runs! http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=fKPsXZ_s6ZA

Yeah, I brought this up, and, well, there's a reason I'm P1 on Friday and not in the Finals at all. Like I said, "most" handled the pressure well. It would be nice to see all the raw times so we can actuallly see who was really fastest. If anyone has the raw times, please post them. Since I wasn't allowed to run on Saturday, it would at least be nice to have that.

They ABSOLUTELY picked up their game this year, but the forum wasn't the right place to put this information, especially since many of us didn't know to even look there. My smart phone battery won't support checking the internet all day, and taking pictures, and actually communicating (for those of us who still use a phone for that sort of thing). Times and information updates (like delays due to weather, etc.) could've been posted at the Camaro5 tent or at least relayed to the Camaro5 team, who usually had no idea what was going on at CamaroCross. Just a suggestion for next year.

As for the part about needing a teenager that knows how to use a computer to do this stuff..... YOU HAVE NO FRIKIN CLUE WHAT AND WHO YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT!!!!! Melanie has more computer ability AND knowledge in her little finger than probably 75% of the people on the planet, she was doing this ALL BY HERSELF, and dealing with the worst wifi I've seen in quite a while. Maybe if know-it alls like you would pitch in and help a little, things would have been posted in a timely fashion..... The woman stayed up till after 2 am to make sure all this was done, then had to be at the track by 7, and this is the kind of thanks you give her?????

I think somebody needs to grow up and realize the world doesn't revolve around them. An adult would show some common courtesy and RESPECT to people that give up LARGE amounts of their time for ZERO benefit to them so OTHER PEOPLE can have FUN! Not piss and moan about it when they find out they aren't as good of a driver as they think they are......

Have a nice day!

Now, let's get back on track, shall we????

To anybody wanting to see the final standings, there have been some minor technical difficulties with some of the equipment, but I believe the final results should be posted later this evening.
Easy fella, feedback is a good thing, that's how you get batter at doing things. Don't attack people, it just keeps them away next time. We all had fun. Anything opportunities to do better and learn from mistakes should be welcome. We had our issues with the car show last year, listened to the complaints, and made changes this year. Not a big deal to listen and stay open minded. You all worked hard, and we all had fun. No one is trying to make it personal.
