Before getting into the driver’s seat you will receive a technical briefing from the Yas Drag Racing Centre’s chief instructor. Safety regulations will be explained, followed by reaction training in the reaction simulator room. There, you will learn about the “Christmas Tree” lighting signal system and will be taught to manage your reaction times. Your instructor will be at the wheel on the first test run and will brief you on staging, braking zones and the finish line.
On the second run, you will be in the driver’s seat. Your instructor will be in the passenger seat to assess your handling and control of the vehicle. Provided you manage this well, you will be permitted to take the remainder of your runs on your own without the instructor in the car. Your instructor will watch your performance at all times and brief you following each of your eight runs.
The Chevrolet Camaro SS is a force to be reckoned with. A 6.2L V8 engine with the capability of 455 horsepower and 614 Nm of torque will take the 8-speed automatic Camaro SS from 0-100 kph in 4 seconds flat.
