The 2011 Gran Turismo Awards were held last Thursday night in Las Vegas, and Kazunori Yamauchi himself selected this year?s ?Best in Show? winner: a 1971 Chevrolet Camaro, customized and tuned by Mary Pozzi of Salinas, California.
The Camaro beat out an impressive and diverse set of GT Awards finalists in the other categories, including:
Best Truck/SUV: Casey Scranton?s CGS Performance Ford F150
Best Domestic Car: Filip Trojanek?s 1966 Widebody Ford Mustang
Best Asian Import: Mike Mixon?s custom Nissan 370Z
Best European Import: Mark Arcenal?s custom 1990 Porsche 911 C4
Best Hot Rod: Marry Pozzi?s custom 1971 Chevrolet Camaro
Mary has been involved with motorsports for many years, and actually drives the car in competitive events. Take a look at this video for more background on Mary?s accomplishments, her thoughts on suspension tuning, and a look at the car in action:
As with previous award winners, the Camaro will be included in the GT franchise at some point in the future, though Kazunori didn?t yet know exactly when that would be when I asked him.
That Camaro looks allover the place on that super soft air suspension.
