V8Stockcar/Camaro Cup @ Sebring

01-30-2012, 09:57 PM
The Camaro Cup will makes it debut in the United States Feb 11-12 at Sebring and the following weekend at Palm Beach (Feb 18-19).

The Sebring event will be with the Central Florida Region SCCA, which will also be a Crane Cams V8 StockCar points weekend. In addition there will be a full field of SCCA classes including vintage.

This is an SCCA spectator event and I understand the charge is only 5 bucks for non SCCA members.

The Camaro Cup is a televised pro series in Europe and counts Jan Magnusson and Nic Jonnson among series drivers.

The cars are tube framed chassis constructed by Howe Racing in Michigan with the Howe Camaro Euro body. Similar to the TA2 body, save for they don't have the wide flares. The cars are powered by modified versions of the Chevy ZZ4 crate motor and make around 450 horsepower. With only about 2500 pounds to push around, they are quite quick.

The second weekend at PBIR will be run with HSR (Historic Sportscar Racing) and will also be a points race for Crane Cams V8SC.

There are practice days for both events on friday before the weekend.
