Nascar Camaro @ Le Mans 2023

Top contributor
that one off racecar has as much in common with a Cup racer as a Cup
Camaro has to a factory street legal Camaro..

Hendrick Motorsports says that the systems and components on the Camaro
ZL1 are ‘largely unchanged’ from what you’ll find in the same car on Cup
Series weekends. Obvious modifications include real headlights and
taillights (kind of important when the sun goes down), a larger fuel
tank, uprated brakes – carbon ceramic items, no less – as well as new
tyres developed by Goodyear.
It’s around 240kg lighter than the Cup car, too, while additional aero
(we can see new dive planes on the front wheel arches and on the
trailing edge of the rear three-quarter panels), should ensure the Le
Mans NASCAR racer is a bit more stable through la Sarthe’s trickier
sections.

Daryl Wilson the differences are well documented, and a lot of them are
visible in pics like this.

Top contributor
Derrick Mcneill Well, it's such more Cup racer than you are eluding to.

Top contributor
Derrick Mcneill That's pretty inaccurate. This car would never pass a
NASCAR inspection but I would bet 90% of the components are the same as
a NASCAR. Where is 0% of a NASCAR is common with a street car

Top contributor
Todd Bunger they literally said that everything is modified in some way.
at first they said they were only going to do what was needed for
durability and to pass safety tech so they could show how badass a
NASCAR Cup series car is, but then they started gluing stuff onto the
body for downforce and changed everything inside the cockpit, right down
to the Formula 1 style steering wheel with push button shifters instead
of the lever on the floor.
they said that driving this car would be nothing like a Cup racer.

Top contributor
Derrick Mcneill well then let me put it very simply for you. Are there
any parts on the car is at our NASCAR?

Top contributor
Todd Bunger my understanding is that the basic building blocks that they
started with are the same- chassis, engine block, transmission case,
body panels,etc- but modified to be "better"...
which totally invalidates the original stated purpose of this car.

Top contributor
Derrick Mcneill well if there was one NASCAR part on that car it has
more to do with the NASCAR than the NASCAR has to do with a street car
which was my point.
Honestly I've never heard what the purpose of the car is. I've asked on
several posts and never got an answer. I assume it's just simply trying
something and having fun with it. To me that doesn't mean garage 56
qualifications but...

Itll win its class easy 😉😁

Top contributor
I'm just curious, does anybody know what the point of this effort is?
Usually garage 56 is about pioneering technology that I just can't
figure out what the purpose of the investment here is.
No I'm not putting it down, just trying to understand it

Top contributor
Todd Bunger it's about NASCAR wanting to hang out with other members of FIA.

Todd Bunger it’s basically a marketing campaign

Admin

Todd Bunger I believe this is the start of a effort for NASCAR to race
in Europe. The Car do not meet the rules to race in any LeMans class. So
just make the best car you can that sorta looks like American Iron.
Loud, Proud, and Fast. True the Vipers did very well in Europe. But they
were not the common mans car.

Top contributor
Michael Morelan NASCAR actually has a euroNASCAR series. I only learned
this today. 12 race series in 2023. The cars look more or less infinity
series

Todd Bunger 75th Anniversary of NASCAR, there have been other NASCAR
entries at LeMans. Also a test bed to see how far the platform could be
taken.

Todd Bunger I wonder if they are looking at making cars like this a
class at their events like the Daytona 24 hour

Top contributor
David Hamilton it is more or less a GT3 car but the construction used,
isn't consistent with any other GT class. The Daytona 24 classes are
pretty close to the WEC and Le Mans classes intenionally.

I'm sorry but I just can't care about this

Eric Nicholas You care enough to have made the same comment twice. It's
more than a lot of the fans.
