Camaros Hit the West Coast In A Big Way.

Matt Alcala brought out this beautiful '69 LS-powered Camaro built by our buddies over at Best of Show Coach Works. With less than 1,500 miles on the odometer, this was the Camaro's first driving event. And while Alcala's times of 53.837 on the autocross and 2:14.47 on the road course weren't in the top of the bell curve, the fact that he was willing to beat on such a sweet, and freshly done, Camaro made us proud. Alcala's ride was nice enough to be chosen as the event's car show winner.

To us, Carl Casanova symbolizes everything we love about this hobby. His '68 is nice without being over the top, it hauls ass, and can stick in the corners. He's also a firm believer that driving to an event is almost as much fun as the event itself. He left his home way before dawn to make the 100-mile trip, beat the snot out of his Camaro, then turned around and drove it home.

When we told Editor Nick Licata to go out and "nail that apex" he took us a bit too literally. His first event was the road course and, after a few laps, he limped in the '01 Z28 with a dead back tire. It turns out that he managed to pick up a rather large nail in his inside rear sidewall. You know it's just not your day when a nail pierces your tire, backwards. This cut his time in Black Betty short, but he did manage to grab some seat time in a few of the other Camaros. Be sure to visit www.camaroperformers.com to see some video of his road course run.

We saw Casanova hitting the road course hard but for whatever reason, there's no score recorded. Maybe it was because he kept catching the car in front but, given that he was on 180-treadwear tires, we suppose the times are a moot point. We do show he managed a 44.744-second run on the autocross, though.

Here's proof that Casanova tried hard in the Speed-Stop Challenge. Maybe a bit too hard, given how bad he FUBAR'd his right, front Kumho tire. We imagine it was bit annoying on the long drive back home.

Our 2010 Camaro SS project car was shared at the event by owner Yancy Johns and tech editor Steven Rupp. Here Johns makes a run though the cones to a best time of 42.072. Rupp ran the Speed-Stop Challenge for a Sixth place time of 14.359. On the road course the car seemed a bit "off" and threw a code that showed to be a lean condition. We later found that the GM fuel pump was unable to keep up with the nearly 550 rear-wheel horsepower our Camaro puts down.

Bad luck hit Chris Robinson hard when an engine failure knocked his big-block- powered Camaro out of the competition. Before the internal combustion carnage took place, he managed a best road course time of 2:18.97.

Paul Setter came out from Chino, California, to get some wheel time in his '69 RS. The drivetrain consists of a ZZ4 small-block and Tremec TKO-600 transmission while braking is courtesy of a set of Baer binders. We show he ran a 2:13.06 on the 2.1-mile road course and a 47.598 on the autocross but more importantly, he gained more track experience.
