C5s are great for road racing

Post by kingforward » Mon Nov 17, 2008 3:52 pm

Since this C5 area needs a launch....here goes.

One of my alltime favorite personal cars was a black/black '99 hardtop six speed. Bought the car new in '99 and 5 years later turned it into a race car. Won club championship in that car while racing Homestead, Sebring and other tracks against Porches and BMWs.

If anybody is thinking of building a race car for club events, this is a great start. Strong runner and parts are relatively plentiful and cheap. Put a T1 package, roll cage, gut the car of power windows, A/C and stuff and race a 'vette all day long! :cool

I agree ! The C5 is a great race car for the money. And Homestead is a cool track to run on. They have the nicest pits
