One Of The Greats: Burtin Racing Celebrates the Chevrolet Camaro with COTA Trans Am Corral
October 19, 2018
Austin, TX – October 18, 2018 - The Chevrolet Camaro is without doubt one of the true greats of American sportscar racing heritage, and as the 2018 Trans Am presented by Pirelli championship comes to a climax, it is once again the unmistakable Camaro that is competing for top honours. To celebrate this remarkable car, Burtin Racing is hosting a Camaro Corral and concourse at Circuit of The Americas Trans Am, the next race weekend for the series in Austin, Texas, November 2-4.
The Burtin Racing Camaro Corral is a gathering of Chevrolet Camaros of every age and vintage, so Camaro owners and their friends of all Camaro models and styles are invited to attend at the Grand Plaza of the fabulous Formula One facility on Saturday, November 3 starting at 10am.
On the track this season, it’s the Burtin Racing Chevrolet Camaro of Lawrence Loshak that has been in the championship hunt and breaking records. Two wins in the National Championship Series, at VIR and Pittsburgh, puts the Wisconsin ace just 5 points behind championship leader Ernie Francis with two rounds to go - an extraordinary achievement for any driver in his first full season in the TA Class. Always fan friendly, Loshak will be taking time to meet Camaro Corral guests and fans to sign autographs in the Grand Plaza at COTA starting at 11:30am.
There is a special prize for the 'Best in Show' in the concourse presented by Pirelli with the winner to be announced at 12pm. The Camaro Corral guest that is voted by the Burtin Racing team as best looking will win a set of four (4) Pirelli tires as well as a host of team give-aways including shirts, hats and other prizes.
Parking at the Camaro Corral is free for guests on Saturday, November 3 starting at 10am. Admission to the event, paddock and other areas will require a ticket for entry. No purchase is necessary to participate in the Camaro Corral activities however guests must be present to win!
Equally at home on the street or the race track, the Chevrolet Camaro has a unique place in the history of American motorsports as well as having a special place in the hearts of the drivers, team and enthusiasts of Trans Am racing alike. An essential part of the American sports and muscle car scene for over 50 years, the Camaro has been the champion car in Trans Am no fewer than eight times going all the way back through the series to its inception in 1966. If you own a Camaro, or if you know someone who does, be sure to be at the 2018 Burtin Racing Camaro Corral at COTA.
