BAD PENNY 68 CAMARO RUNS IN THE 2009 OPTIMA ULTIMATE STREET CAR
"Optima Invitational on TV.
The program will air nationally on SPEED on January 30
at 11:00 a.m. ET and again on January 31 at 4:00 p.m.
ET. This never before seen footage will cover several of the
intense vehicle builds in the days leading up to the competition,
driver and vehicle appearances at the Specialty Equipment
Manufacturing Association (SEMA) trade show and focus on all of the
event racing excitement, proving what these specialty vehicles and
aftermarket products are capable of."
Mary Pozzi is featured a lot in this show, there are some clips of David
and Steve changing a bad PS pump on Bad Penny, and David driving on
track. Loads of the nicest Pro-Touring cars from SEMA too!
"Bad Penny" was driven by David Pozzi and owner
Rupp November 7th 2009 at Spring Mountain Nv. David drove on the road
course, Steve drove in the Autocross and 0 to 60 to 0. While we
finished a consistant 4th place in the speed events, we had a power
steering pump quit at the start of the first autocross run. A quick
trip to the auto parts store got us a new pump, but we had to wait our
turn to borrow a puller tool for the pulley. Bad Penny scored
high in the Style judging.
Here is a video of my track run.

MARY POZZI WINS! QUICKEST ON D.O.T. TREADWEAR 180 AND
Mary drove her 73 Camaro at Pleasanton and did an amazing job
putting down the fastest time of the event except for 1 corvette on
softer rubber. Unfortunately I didn't bring my camera and we will
have to rely on other peoples photos. Here's a video I found from the

MARY POZZI WINS! - QUICKEST MUSCLE CAR.
Another great GoodGuys autocross, we met a lot of great people and I
even got a few laps in Mary's Camaro and in James Shipka's One Lap
Camaro. Mary displayed her Camaro in the Hotchkis booth when not
tearing up the autocross course, thanks go out to the great guys at
Hotchkis for their enthusiastic support. Optima Batteries hosted
Steve Rupp's Bad Penny and James Shipka's One Lap Camaro in their
booth. Below is David and Mary Pozzi, James Shipka, and Steve Rupp
standing in front of OLC, aka "Not Penny". James had a special
license plate made for OLC that says "Not Penny" since they have
similar color paint.
Hotchkis covered the event very well and did an interview
of Mary about driving and suspension systems.
Many thanks to our good friends at RideTech, Detroit Speed, Hotchkis
Suspension, Optima Batteries and Goodguys for supporting events like
this. I think the Pro-Touring movement is gaining strength and it's
great fun to see people enjoying their cars.Mary gave countless rides
and driving pointers both days of the event.
COSTA MESA CA
March 15, 2009
MARY POZZI FINSHES SECOND PLACE OVERALL TO A Z06
FASTEST MUSCLE CAR
We had a great time at the Goodguys
autocross in Costa Mesa. Mary
has alot of Hotchkis parts on her second gen Camaro, so they convinced
her to run this event to show what their bolt on parts can
really do. Mary finished second overall in the Autocross by a couple
of tenths! The winner was a late model Z06 Corvette. Mary's fastest
lap was within the same tenth of a second as Kyle Tucker of Detroit
Speed in his awsome second gen Camaro. I can't say enough about Kyle
and Stacy of Detroit Speed, such nice people! The guys at RideTech
are true enthusiasts and beat the snot out of their cars on the
Autocross course run after run. The Hotchkis guys got a kick out of
seeing Mary run so well & we were very proud to represent them.
