We are very proud to announce a new partnership with General Motors Canada and Chevrolet which makes Area 27 the official home of the Camaro Driving Academy, featuring a fleet of 18 Chevrolet Camaros equipped with the 1LE track package. These cars will predominantly be for use for the 2.5-day high performance driving course, open to members and the public. It is the perfect way for someone who is new to track driving to gain certification to be your guest on an Open Members’ Lapping day – hint, hint.
The Camaro 1LE is a perfectly balanced drivers’ car that is just as ideally suited to your favourite road as it is to Area 27’s many challenging, and undulating corners. The fleet includes the 4-cylinder turbo, V-6 RS models, and the V-8 SS models, all equipped with the 1LE track package. To provide the ultimate grip, consistency, and predictability on the track, the cars are fitted with specially developed Goodyear F-1 Supercar 3 tires. Stopping power is supplied by massive Brembo brakes engineered to meet the demands of the most challenging circuits.
The combination of the Camaro 1LE, Area 27 track, and expert Academy 27 instruction, will provide for the highest level of driver education. Area 27 welcomes General Motors Canada and Chevrolet to the South Okanagan, being honoured to continue a tradition of excellence.
