Autocross, Drag Racing & Camaros Mania: Hotchkis hits Camaro5Fest II

On Thursday, April 16, Hotchkis head, John Hotchkis, loaded up the trailer, hitched up to the Dually, set Drew Oliver from the sales department in the Hotchkis F-11 Camaro project car (2011 1SS) and hit the road.
When the guys pulled into the Firebird Raceway, things were already buzzing. The vendor area was HUGE! Dozens and dozens of manufacturers, and Hotchkis was directly across the aisle from our friends at Lingenfelter Engineering (They run the Hotchkis chassis brace and suspension parts on just about every super car that rolls out of their facility). Customer and H-Team member Rick Andrade was right next door with his company 2Edge Performance, Street Trendz down the aisle moved a LOT of performance parts, and our buddies from Centerforce Clutches were right down the row.

Speaking of Centerforce - this is a good time for a little F-11 Project Update. The Inferno Orange SS has seen some MAJOR changes in the past few months. It is not only packing a complete Hotchkis Race Pack Suspension System, it is now armed for war with a Magnusson Supercharger, JBA Long Tube Headers and dual exhaust, a Centerforce clutch, BBS wheels and a brand new set of Nitto NT05 tires. Packing over 600 horsepower at the crank and with incredible grip, the car is still comfortable as a daily driver with a kickin' stereo and ice-cold air conditioning, but is brutally fast around corners and in the straights. John and Drew couldn't wait to put it to the test at Camaro5Fest.

The H-Team was well represented at Camaro5Fest II. Rick Andrade took his supercharged Camaro out several times for exhibition runs, but tried hard to keep it clean for a magazine photo shoot Friday night in the Arizona sunset. Great Hotchkis friends Rob and Trish Byrd drove out from the So Cal Camaro5 Family from Riverside in a group cruise, and Rob was chomping at the bit to get on the autocross course and try out his brand new BBS Wheels and Nitto Invo tires… MORE
