Default C8 Mid Engine shots, in the wild!!

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...

Have to go take care of some business, Video is uploading, check back tonight...

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...

I'll never understand why people bother blurring out manufacturer license plates.

Let's just say my 1000 HP Supercharged C5 is pretty loud, so it kinda overshadowed and C8 sounds....

Just trying to show a little respect to the guys, I spoke to them a bit and they were reasonably cool, would not confirm nor deny anything....

Did they let you close enough to the car(s) to allow you to see any details underneath the mesh, such as back window, tail lights, interior, etc?

Are they using old school CB radios to communicate?

What did you think of the C8 sound? From what you could hear over your car? Maybe as they were taking off and you were not revving your car?

Of course they are way out in the desert. Fits the rumor of Irvine from a couple of weeks ago. Looks like they might have taken the 74 through the mountains and are out there in the middle of nowhere testing.

Looking forward to the rest of the pics and vids.
