I wish I could do that.

Too bad he wasn't using manual shift mode. Would've kept up in the corners (maybe).

God I want to do that so bad.

Thanks for the video, I enjoyed to see this car driven around a track.

Does anybody know if they will put any G8s into Grand Am? I'm pretty sure they have GTOs in it.

Other than the sweetness of the high banks... I think I've done faster on my way to work it didn't seem like he was pushing that car AT ALL.

So what was in front of them? A G8 GXP? Sure looked like it!

Well it was definitely a G8 and the guy said the car infront had bigger brakes so I would assume so.

The camera car was the G8 pace car. They were using it last year, and will use it at least this year too. In the video, at certain points, I can see that there are decals on the hood:



They race a number of GXP.Rs (basically a G6 coupe) and at least one GTO, but I would love to see some G8s racing in the Grand Am Rolex series.

This video was pretty cool! I got to go to the Daytona 500 this year. Riding around with Jr. at 180mph would have been really cool!

Hot lap rides are really fun. Hilton Head Island Concours de' Elegance in the first week of November stages rides at a Savannah GA track with BMW's, Porche's and a few other less notable marques, like the Kia Genesis. Not too many takers for those, but the mini-Coopers were fun and one guy had his own Ford GT. Totally flat track, so it can really scare the crap out of you at 140 MPH heading to a ninety degree unbanked turn.
