*We apologize for the position and auto-iris of the forward facing camera, which was set up while the car was in garage and on jack stands. We understand if you don't know the layout of Willow Springs, it may be tricky to follow. We will try to do better next time. MF*
This 2015 Camaro Z/28 began life as a road car, and was converted by its owner, Russ Taylor, to run in NASA Super Touring 2 class racing. It runs the stock powertrain, with the dry-sump , 505 HPLS7 V8 and 6-speed manual transmission, but significant weight has been removed, and it now only weighs 3,300 lbs, wet. Stock weight is over 3,800 lbs. With a roll cage, significant aero work, and lots of tire, this Camaro looks intimidating, but it's actually quite straightforward, forgiving, and FAST to drive!
