The OneLapCamaro is a custom built 1967 Camaro RS that was engineered to excel in a variety of motorsports -- autocross, road racing, acceleration and braking challenges, and open highway racing. Here, Kelle and owner James Shipka chat about the car at the 2010 Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational event.

 

In this special three-part V8TV presentation, we traveled to Nashville Tennessee to cover the first annual Run To Music City pro touring event presented by Carbon Kustoms. The Run To Music City (RTMC) combines a spirited driving cruise, autocross racing, high-speed driving, and car show events with tours of Advanced Plating, Greening Auto Company, and Hydratech breaking. It's a great event for people who like to drive their cars in high-performance situations and have great friends along for the ride!

 

In this second of three parts covering the Run To Music City event, participants run the autocross, speed-stop challenge, and road course. The goal is partially to set good track times, but more so to have fun with their cars. Includes interviews with Paul Clark from Hydratech, Bret Voelkel from Ridetech about the 48 Hour Camaro, and Albert Melchior from Carbon Kustoms.

 

This is the final installment of three parts covering the Run To Music City event. This time, we meet the "big guns" in this crowd, and see who takes home the coveted qualification spot for the Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational in Pahrump, NV. The goal is partially to set good track times, but more so to have fun with their cars. Includes interviews with Brian Finch of Finch Hot Rod Transformations , and Kyle Tucker of Detroit Speed & Engineering. Coverage presented by Carbon Kustoms.

The Roadster Shop builds some killer cars, and they were recently out beating up one of their most amazing creations, the RSC1 Corvette.   Starting life as a 1962 Corvette, the Roadster Shop crew transformed every piece of this car into a slick high-tech version of the timeless C1 Corvette.   Starting with a complete new RS Performance chassis, they added a GM LS7 engine, Kinsler EFI, giant brakes, and all the right parts to make it stop, go, and turn.   Then they reworked every panel on the car, added a custom interior, and started winning awards.   We think the best part is that this car gets driven hard on road course and autocross tracks.  This interview was shot at the 2009 Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational, and is part of an upcoming DVD of the event.

 

 

Here's a fun clip of some super-bad muscle cars tearing up the road course, autocross, and speed-stop challenge at the 2009 Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational.   It looks like fun because it is!
