New Z/28.R Race Car – First Race – 6 PM Fri., 1/24 – Fox Sports 2

The first race for the new Z/28.R race cars is on television on Fox Sports 2 at 6 PM this evening. They will be running in the GS class of the IMSA Continental Tires SportsCar Challenge's 2½-hour Daytona Rising 200 endurance race. This is the former Grand-Am CTSCC series now running under the aegis of IMSA after the Grand-Am/ALMS merger.

The car is being campaigned by two teams:

Stevenson Motorsports – #6 driven by Robin Liddell & Andrew Davis, and #9 driven by Andy Lally & Matt Bell; and,

CKS Autosport – #01 driven by Lawrence Aschenbach & Eric Curran, and #00 driven by Bob Michaelian & Ashley McCalmont.

Hopefully the Z/28.R has been allowed a fair chance at a victory; if so, there are some very talented racers behind the wheels of these cars, and it should be quite exciting.

CORRECTION: The #00 CKS Autosport entry is a GS.R, not a Z/28.R.

Nope - upon further review that car was a GS.R

So not the first ever.

Other finished like 5th. BMWs lead basically whole race.

One wreck, the Matt Bell/Andy Lally car had a fuel hose issue(?) on the warm-up lap and lost 7 laps - don't remember hearing much at all about the other two during the race commentary except that Aschenbach was running in 3rd for awhile in the beginning. Andy Lally said it best: "New platform teething issues". A good 30% of what should have been a 78-lap race was lost to five cautions - there were 68 cars out there, and at times the ST drivers looked like they were playing bumper cars. Preliminary results at: http://www.imsa.com/sites/default/fi...rovisional.pdf:

Stevenson Motorsports

#6 Robin Liddell & Andrew Davis - finished 58th, and listed as not running at the finish
#9 driven by Andy Lally & Matt Bell - finished 54th

CKS Autosport

#01 driven by Lawrence Aschenbach & Eric Curran - finished 11th
#00 driven by Bob Michaelian & Ashley McCalmont - finished 60th after crashing out when McCalmont got tapped in a corner on lap 23 of 54; the 00 car is mislabeled in the results as a GS.R (the previous iteration of the Camaro in this series).

CORRECTION: The #00 CKS Autosport entry is a GS.R after all, and not a Z/28.R.

BMW finishing 1-5 in GS was laughable (actually 1-6, but the first place car was dq'd on a technical violation after the race). I guess that's why it was named the BMW Performance 200. They better get the performance of these cars equalized, 'cause this was stupid. Maybe GM needs to give even more money to IMSA - clearly, they got outspent by BMW.

It certainly looked that way since there was a swarm of BMWs up in the lead group most of the race. The #13 RumBum Porsche of Matt Plumb & Nick Longhi led 22 of the 54 laps, and looked like it had an excellent shot at the win when late in the race the car simply quit in a turn. It then came back to life, and they finished 14th.

TV Announcer said there were three. I thought I saw four on TV - but the 00 car was GS.R (not z/28.r)
Car numbers:

#01 Blue finished maybe in top ten
#6 Silver/Red Stevenson drivetrain failure did not finish
#9 Silver/Blue Stevenson Fuel Leak at start of race - finished several laps down

I have to ask, are these real deal Z/28s or just Camaro bodies with body trim and racing parts?, I'm asking is this becasue the teams raced Camaro's before and aside from the front lip, i don't see Z/28 any where? Even on their web and facebook pages, I saw no mention of Z/28s?

Heck I do see SS on the grills of the Pictures from Stevenson?
