Over the past week or so, teams of two have been driving a fleet of 2016 Chevrolet Camaro coupes all over the United States as part of General Motors’ Find New Roads Trip. This group of handpicked media personalities pick up the car in one location and drive it to another, stopping along the way to take pictures of the 6th gen Camaro in interesting places and sharing those pictures on social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Periscope and more. Along the way, there are events where Camaro fans will have a chance to see the 2016 model in person, but for those who cant check it out in the flesh, you can catch all of the action by following the right people on those social networks.
The Camaro Show Drives the 2016 Camaro
I had a chance to speak with Chris Frezza of The Camaro Show, and he gave me the rundown on what was planned for his leg of the 2016 Camaro Find New Roads Trip. Frezza will be joined by his friend and fellow Camaro expert Jason Port of CamaroSix.com and CamaroNews.com, and the two will begin their road trip in San Francisco, California.
They start off with a special event on Wednesday night in San Fran and come Thursday morning, they will participate in a key drawing to see which groups get a 2016 Camaro SS and which get the 2016 Camaro LT – or deciding who gets the 3.6L V6 and who gets the 6.2L LT1 V8. After they find out which variety of 2016 Camaro they will be driving, Frezza and Port have until 5pm Friday to make it to a designated location in Los Angeles.
According to Mapquest, San Francisco is about 380 miles from Los Angeles, so depending on traffic, it is a drive that could take anywhere from 6 to 8 hours. Fortunately, Frezza and Port have more than a day to make their way from San Fran to the City of Angels, allowing them to take in some sights with their 2016 Camaro along the way. Of course, we can also expect plenty of information and insight from these long –time Camaro experts as they drive the new Camaro in the real world for the first time.
