The H-Team track day at Willow Springs last Wednesday was a huge success. Several magazines came out to get numbers and do some track testing, and the crew from The Car Show on SPEED was on hand at the big track to do a muscle car segment for an upcoming episode. Our H-Team cars were running in top form, and our drivers are getting faster than ever! We’ll have an official video up soon, in the meantime here are a few updates:
Rob & Trish Byrd brought out their his and hers 5th Gen Camaros. Rob has become quite fast in his Hotchkis Track Pack equipped coupe with BBS Wheels, and Trish logged track time in her new convertible, which we used for R&D when designing the new Hotchkis Camaro Total Vehicle System. Both of these fantastic people are getting REALLY fast, and after spending some seat time with John, Trish got even faster! Here’s a video Rob put together:
Don Gonzales attended his first H-Team Willow day and spent most of his time on the big track with the TV guys, while his better half Laura spent most of the day shooting pictures for albums on Facebook and the forums. Carl Casanova brought out his stunning ’68 Camaro, which he let journalist Dan Neil drive for the TV show. Dan’s comment, on getting out of the car, was that the TVS equipped 1st gen was “In 20 years, this is the best car I’ve ever drivin.” Kudos to Carl for his attention to detail and hard work on this stunning ride.
The 2nd Gen brigade was represented by Mary & David Pozzi and Deanna Marengo, who were out doing R&D hot laps in their new Hotchkis 3-Link equippd Camaros. Both cars were blisteringly fast, and the kits will be available on the market soon. Stay tuned for a major announcement.
Mike Hickman brought out the newly rebuilt project G-10 pickup, complete with an all new Hotchkis C10 TVS, GM Perf. Parts E-Rod crate engine, 4L65E transmission with TCI paddle shifters, Rushforth wheels and Falken Azenis tires. This truck was incredibly fast, outrunning nearly everything else on the track including several super cars! Mike produced his own video, here it is:
Overall it was a fantastic day, full of fast laps, excitement and lots of timed testing. Thanks to all for attending, and don’t forget to join the H-Team if you want to be part of the fun!
