The Chevrolet Camaro has had no shortage of presence on the Pirelli World Challenge grid in years’ past, and 2015 is no different. Several drivers are fielding the bowtie-badged racecar this year, including BestIT Racing’s Andy Lee.
Lee recently took some time out of his day to show us around the cockpit of his Camaro racecar, which he drives in the PWC’s competitive GTS class against rival manufacturers like Ford and Porsche. Like most racecars, the interior is pretty barren, however he shows us several features you might not be aware the GTS-class Camaro had, such as a switch for the driver’s “cool suit” and a defroster in case it rains.
You may also expect the Camaro racecar to have an advanced paddle shift transmission like the Corvette C7.R’s, for example, however Lee’s car has a retro-looking six-speed manual with a Hurst shift knob, which is linked up to a not-so-pretty looking piece of steel.
If you’ve ever wondered what the inside of a Camaro racecar looks like and is like to sit in, you won’t want to miss the video below. If you want to keep up with Lee’s progress as the PWC season continues, you can follow the series online.
