Camaro Show #179 – 2019 Camaro 1LE Turbo

2019 Camaro 1LE Turbo

Hello, listeners! This show is part 2 of the show we recorded last week. We have joining us in the studio again is Manny Katakis from

Manny was on the GM drive for the new 2019 Camaro 1LE Turbo. We are dedicating this episode to his experience driving and racing the 2019 Camaro 1LE Turbo car.

Here is an excerpt from an article Manny wrote for

“At 3,354 lbs, the 2019 Chevrolet Camaro Turbo 1LE is lighter than the Mustang EcoBoost by around 200 lbs. It’s lighter than the much smaller BMW 230i, by at least 19 lbs. In fact, the 2019 Camaro Turbo 1LE is even lighter than the beloved Corvette Grand Sport, and only 56 lbs heavier than a base Corvette Stingray.

This low weight translates into endearing track manners and helps make it a ringer of a vehicle for SCCA autocross competitions, likely for either the B Street (with the V6 Camaro 1LE) or F Street classes (with the base Camaro SS) when it becomes categorized for next season. To wit, a base Camaro Turbo won the D Street category at SCCA Solo Nationals last year, and a highly modified 2019 Camaro Turbo 1LE driven by GM engineers won the CAM-C class at the V8-oriented SCCA CAM Challenge earlier this month. The car is highly competitive, and motorsport pilots have taken notice.”
