We've featured all manner of track-focused road cars in evo Track Car of the Year before: Think Caterhams, Elises, Radicals and more.

And as you'll find out in the video, it was both a lot of fun and very much worthy of its inclusion in our annual track battle. It's styled nicely, built well and fairly easy to adapt to.
At a fiver under £60,000 it's also expensive, but far from unique in this regard when it comes to track cars, and there's also plenty of latent potential in the car; we'd be very surprised if the next VUHL wasn't even better.
You can ride on board with the Camaro’s lap in the video above – and stay tuned on evo.co.uk for the final evo Track Car of the Year video – that of the crazy Ariel Nomad – over the next few days.
