This really shows you how well built and safe the Pratt & Miller prepared Camaro's are. A World Endurance Camaro flew up and onto the guard rail at Mosport during the TransAm weekend ealier this year. Again the driver (15yrs old) got out of the car and walked away un-harmed. The poor Mazda did not fair nearly as well.

You do realize these are tube frame race cars that have very little in common to a production Camaro?However Pratt & Miller builds a very safe racecar!

Have you forgotten who I am? Of course I know they are tube frame race cars which is why I highlighted Pratt & Miller built rather than Chevrolet. However remember the tag line: The best race cars start as the best street cars! And to confirm Corvette's fly - the Weldon Corvette won the GT class with old Heinricy (sp?) driving in Boris Said's place.
