Default Supercharged C5 chases Mid engine C8!! Pics and Vid...

Got a call from my Mec on his way to work that there were 4 Camouflaged Corvettes headed my way up the mountain this morning. I grabbed a few cameras and jumped in the C5 to intercept...

I thought I turned on the front go pro, but could not believe it did not record, anyway, a did get a bunch of shots and some short video clips on my Ihpone, and a little with my rear camera...

As I was headed down the mountain, the first 2 flew by me, I flipped a U turn and caught up to them, then the other two came in behind me! I chased the front two for a good 15 minutes thru the canyons, the roads were wet, but we did get after it a bit!!

Working on some video now, but here's a few shots...

OK, like I said before, REALLY sucks my forward camera did not record, but I worked in some Iphone shots and a few Iphone clips I took while following them....

Here's what I got on rainy wet morning...

There was a 5 mile section that we got into it quite a bit, the roads were wet, and it was tedious at best keeping traction, the C8 in front of me fish tailed just a bit on one corner...


Thanks guys, it was pretty cool, just wish the front camera had worked, would have been an EPIC video!!
