Nice and thanks for the vid!

Anybody know what suspension type they are running on these Challenge cars?

Thank you for posting!
Yeah, Mosport is an incredibly fast circuit and the speeds that you can carry through a few of those turns are absolutely phenomenal! The first few times I was on the course, I totally underdrove it, what with being used to slower courses and not even imagining how fast one could go and still keep it on the track - especially in turn 1 and through "the Esses" which are the 3 turns (8, 9 and 10) immediately after the long straightaway and before the pit straight (where Pilgrim describes the speeds as going from 140, 115 and 80 mph).
Just a pleasure to watch them set up for turn 2 and see how they do it with a double apex on the off-camber downhill.
Hoping to be running there on Friday, so the timing of these vids is perfect!

Best regards,

Elie

Wow, great videos. What is that camera, like an inch off the ground?

Although they run a specific Race-Keeper kit designed for world challenge cars that looks like a GoPro camera mounted just under where the front plate would mount...
