WELCOME TO V8 THUNDER CARS
This is a one-make-class consisting of big, beautiful and powerful american Chevy Camaros! Of course the cars are equipped with V8’s! Many of the drivers and teamowners are big fans of the american car culture and NASCAR. They live for their sport!
The poularity of the class has been up and down over time, but to the season of 2010, the class had their biggest evolution ever! The New Camaro, called CCR 2010, entered the Swedish arenas!
The car has nothing but the looks in common with the 2010 road version. It is built for one purpose and one purpose only, to be a race car! No compromises what so ever!
The management of the drivers association believed in more than 20 new cars on the grid at the premiere! And they were right. The 2010 season is now historic!
As it looks for 2012, there will be 12 races during 6 occasions/weekends this year. All races are driven at the same weekends, and in collaboration with, the STCC - the Swedish Touring Car Championship. This is the best of Swedish motorsports and this is where the crowd is!
The Camaro Cup has grown a reputation of giving spectators real good value for money, the class is very popular. Because of the strength of the cars, both the chassis and the engines, the drivers can be quite wild on the track! At the same time, if you want to meet nice and friendly people between the races, you better visit the Camaro teams! They appreciate the fans!
If you study the results and standings, you may recognize some well known drivers. Names like for example Bjorn Wirdheim (F1), P-G Andersson (World Champ Rally) and Samuel Hübinette (World Champ Drifting), Nic Jönsson (US F1 among other achievements). They all enjoy, or enjoyed, to drive in the Camaro Cup! That's big!
