Although not me driving my Camaro Z/28, my son drove down south to NY state a few weeks ago with his 2010 Honda SI to compete in an SCCA Autocross event in the Finger Lakes region. He said it was a nice track, well laid out and the people there where just so welcoming and passionate, very nice group he said.
He's made some changes and wanted to know if they worked. It must have been the right moves, although in (ST/STX) it's all full of rear wheel drive BRZ and FRS's, he did pretty good being the only front wheel drive in his class.
Finished in 1st place in Street Touring, and even better 4th overall in PAX. He even beat a guy in a Porsche RS !! But, I have seen him beat many dudes in new Vettes & Porsche on occasion.
I guess that little Honda can boogie, and he can get almost everything out of it.
I guess DAD taught him well LOL........
Holy crap he is moving in that thing. Is oil control any sort of factor with those engines at that rpm under those kind of cornering g's?
That must be frustrating for the guys in the big dollar cars.
everyone enjoys a good proud dad story!!!!...he is driving the ass off that car!!!! cool!!!Thanks Biker, he really does enjoy the whole "autocross" experience. He even liked it when he first started out with his 4 door POS Accord, rusty stock 4 door with stock 4 cyl manual...but he did not give up, drove the wheels off it and learned many lessons real quick on what it takes to be quick in autocross.
And still learning every time out there.....you are so right about sport and competition....Win or loose, it's getting out there and doing it!!!!
Sorry for the "proud Dad-Honda highjack" on this NastyZ28 thread.
Back to Camaro stuff.
