SPORTSCAR365.com Interview: Tony Gaples

Tony Gaples of Blackdog Speed Shop is the focus of this week’s Pirelli Paddock Pass…

Tony Gaples and his Blackdog Speed Shop team have been a staple of the American GT racing scene for years.

The team won the Pirelli World Challenge GTS championship last year with Lawson Aschenbach, who returns to defend his title this year while Gaples is prepared to mount a challenge in the GTSA ranks.

How does the Chevrolet Camaro GT4.R compare to previous Camaros you have driven?

“The cornering speed in the Camaro GT4.R was a big adjustment. It took a lot of confidence early on to push it in the turns.

“The inside of the new Camaro was different than what I had previously driven. The cockpit and function buttons on the steering wheel take some getting used to although the paddle shift system on the Camaro GT4.R is pretty smooth.”
