2010 Chevy Camaro Burn Outs

Yes I know I’ve been quiet for the past week or two, lots of developments that I will happily blog about later. But I saw this video on LeftLaneNews today and it was too good to pass up and brought me out of my mini-retirement. But first I have to plug my favorite Camaro website,
The best and only place one should get their 5th Gen Camaro information from, They actually had the first Camaro review up on the Internet but had to take it down because they unwittingly broke the review embargo which appears to now be lifting. Anyhow, Nick Aziz is another person I hold in high regard and it looks like his site, Left Lane News just got their Camaro which I am happy to see they’re having fun with.

Just for fun: Burning rubber in the 2010 Chevy Camaro video.

Le Mans, NASCAR, F1 Pit Stops compared

A little while ago I attended the Autoclub 500 NASCAR race with the family. Amazingly fun race, especially when going with people that have never attended something like this before. I have to admit it’s been a while since I’ve attended a NASCAR event and since my most recent race had actually been the Monaco Grand Prix, I couldn’t help but contemplate the differences between the various types of racing. Rather than hit on all my observations, I’ll just devote this post to one that stood out to me. So this one I’ll devote to Pit Stops.


Cup racers pride themselves on the the fact their rims have 5 lug nuts slowing down the process. Indeed by having fewer people, less advanced wheel nuts and less advanced fueling, the NASCAR pit stop is slower than F1 but not by much. It’s actually remarkable how much can be done in less than 20 seconds.

Formula 1 Pit Stop

6.2 Seconds! The F1 pit stop is practically an Olympic sport it happens so quickly. As can be seen from this video though, F1 is such a refined sport now that hundredths of second can win or loose the race.

Le Mans Pit Stop

I thought I would throw this in just to illustrate that every version of racing is somewhat different. The 24 hours of Le Mans has a much slower pace, again somewhat dictated by rules, but also due to the fact that the car is being thoroughly inspected to insure that tenths of seconds saved in the pits do not translate into minutes of downtime on the track over a very long endurance race.

Normal Car

Hmm, so what would happen if a normal car got a race car like Pit stop?

And what would happen if an F1 crew did a pit stop at a NASCAR event? Pixar has already laid out to us what that looks like
