    ’09 Cadillac CTS-V
    ’08 Dodge Challenger SRT8
    ’09 Chevrolet Camaro

    This is not the Camaro Cup or any of the other Camaro's.

    Nah, it's something entirely different - this one, to be specific:
    [​IMG]
    Those cars are quite a challenge and some people didn't like them when we last raced them in spring (for the first time in quite a while, as far as I know) - however, I consider them quite fun, so you should give them a go :)

    Also, RD legend @Yves Larose shared a few really nice setups for these cars (for Road America, where we last ran them, but I think they should work fairly well at Riverside, too :))
    Chevrolet Camaro
    Cadillac CTS-V
    Dodge Challenger
    Dodge Charger

    EDIT: Also, Dennis was faster ;)

    @Rafael Kajstura This version of Riverside is what NASCAR raced on, cars that were big "boats" :laugh: and these Muscle cars fit the bill for thrills and excitement. Take them for a spin and you will find that California is made from sand, lots of it :roflmao:
    @Nelson Ullinskey this Bud's for you:

    Watch the wheel work during the in car portions.

    It seems that without some practise I'm absolutely out of good pace, sorry but I will not show up :( My car is flying in every corner, I could destroy someone's race.

    Hmmm, I thought everyone was "flying" around the track :)

    Like most I tried a lot of cars and never got as fast as I did in my first session with them to boot! Atl east they were all kind of stable :laugh: just enough maybe :cautious:.

    R1: Dropped to the back in the esses All I could do was drive around. I caught Mark and we raced together for most of the race, not a lot of action but a fast drive.

    R2: A midpack start did me no better than the last row did in R1. Early on I hit a rolling and tumbling Reggie Snr. A pit stop was a must as I was driving a car with unbelievable understeer. I hoped to come out in front of the leaders but it didn't happen so the rest of my drive was a hard and quite sloppy drive with no chance to fight.

    Thanks to all for taking these cars for a spin!

    Grats to the podiums!
    What a fun race after a long hiatus!

    Hopefully I didn't ran anybody off track in the first race, 2nd corner. I tried to hold my line best as possible, I think there was no contact. Also that last corner, couldn't decide what line to take going in and out of it. Should I go wide, middle or sharp?

    Thank you for racing everybody !
