My answer would be no. Pedders was the host and working the event from Thursday through close on Saturday. I was supposed to make a couple of runs in Dan Howard's car as were Rob and Mike Haddad. We were so busy they never happened. I never made a run in a Camaro. The runs I made were all in a rental Impala with guests. Rob made only one run without passengers in his rental V6. Mike Haddad did make one pass in Dan Horward's Camaro after the event was over. It was his first run in the car and he clocked off a respectable 52. We were short staffed all weekend and my guys worked their collective axxes off. Saturday Rob was so dehydrated from three days in the AZ heat he almost passed out. Our focus was on the event which left us little time for a competition.

That aside, Danny is a real shoe. He is frequently the best driver in SCCA national events so our chances of beating him would have been slim. Danny drove well and I tip our hat to him. He was hands down the fastest driver at the event. Conrad and Eric were right behind Danny and deserve a lot of credit. They are excellent drivers.

Danny, Conrad and Eric

John Hotchkis was a real gentleman and help. He picked up the announcing duties on Saturday. Thank you very much John. His driver Aaron ran great all weekend and had a tough break on the shootout out lap. He drove great and deserves a big

Our focus was to provide a great experience for the Camaro5 community. If we did that, the event was a success.

I rode in a lot of people's cars that were first time drivers.

The result was always the same - THIS IS A BLAST! Can I go again? LOL

I think we turned a lot of people onto a very addicting sport you can do with almost any vehicle.

I was grateful for the opportunity and the chance to be there.
Where I finished became un-important.
What was important was that I met a lot of really great people with one thing in Common - making sure everyone was having a great time.

I KNOW we accomplished that.. I could see it in everyone's enthusiasm when they finished.

As noted, there was nothing pre-meditated about this competition. We knew that we could compete with the best of them, when all different suspension manufactures had cars equipped in the competition. We are very delighted to come out on top again this year, because when there is competition like Conrad with his insanely light Hankook Drift Camaro, and Dan's Lingenfelter/Pedders monster build, and Hotchkis with another great build, you have to be dialed-in to even show up against those guys. This is why the last minute car tweaks are mandatory.

We use our development car to show what is capable of our products on the street and in competition. Autocross is much more of an equalizer in terms of HP so it is appropriate that it is a competition to showcase suspension. This is why we target these types of events to give the end user proof that what they purchase for their street car is relevant to competition.

Hope to be back next year with the same results!

Congratulations... I would love for Pedders, Pfadt, & Hotchkis to come to my track day, but don't want it to be a competition, but more of an informal "here is how you drive, this product would help here".... like some people like oversteer, some like understeer, some a neutral..... etc....

But I know it isn't a big forum to justify the expense of you guys coming and being there and running your vehicles

Anne,

You were invaluable. I don't know how we would have made it through Saturday without you. Invaluable.



Signing your car was an honor. It is humbling. Thank you for your support at the AC and more.

Thank you very much!
