Quiet everyone!  It's 2017;  hear that?  No?  It's the sound of the SAC saying absolutely nothing about the new Camaro 1SS 1LE.  Maybe next month.  Be patient, my brothers.  I'm outa here.  Best Regards!

Yikes, even one class stiffer than even the most pessimistic were thinking. While I do think the SS 1LE would've become the car to have and upset the balance of F-street, the V6 1LE is definitely an FS car.

My guess is they looked at the data of Ryan Otis (newer alpha chassis but heavier Camaro SS) and Mark Scroggs (lighter EB Mustang) and concluded the peak hp/torque had less of an issue than the chassis and weight since there was very little WOT on either course.  Admittedly, it's a little surprising.

it is a pretty hard hit, I would have expected BS for the V8 and FS for the V6. I suspect the SAC is wanting to make the class transition to the newer faster cars take several years....the Shelby GT and S197 Coyote cars are (at best) on the tail end of competitiveness, yet are fairly popular and cheap to get.

As soon as FS attendance drops a little bit, I would expect the New Camaro's to get moved around.

1LE can still run in CAM, right?

Yes, legal for CAM, I ran my 17 SS 1LE at Crows Landing ProSolo in CAM

Not legal for STP
