Virginia Int raceway is a great Road course and it is important since the 2012 gt500 posted a lap time here with an independent driver last year. I am eager to see what the ZL1 posted

Me too !!!! John

What I love about the road course is that you can literally see almost a 1/4 to 1/2 mile ahead of you for most turns. It is awesome! Can't wait to see this vid. I wonder who was driving??

That is a good sign.......... Something to really compare......

Darkstar November 02-26-2012 10:44 PM

the other thing is the GTR has posted times there from lightning lap as well

2012 ZR1 ran 2:50.7
2012 GTR ran 2:53.2
2011 gt500 ran 2:58.48
the Boss 302 ran a 3:02.8

Well, based on the above, I would GUESS the ZL1 in the "right" hands will run the VIR ring in a 2:53.1; I think the straightaways give back the cornering disadvantages.

Shurenuff 02-27-2012 07:07 AM

I wonder what temps were for this run? Hopefully there weren't traction issues due to cold weather that prohibited an optimal time.

Agreed.....with Max Performance summer tires,I don't see them getting a good time this time of year in Va. I run PS2's on my Z06 year round & it's a totally different car when the temps are below ~60 degrees.

Works now.

SlingShot 02-27-2012 09:12 AM

Awesome it beat the GTR and GT500 ...

BoostedX2 02-27-2012 09:21 AM

Beat the GT500 by 6 seconds...

KKreme15 02-27-2012 09:26 AM

Yoo!!!

72MachOne99GT 02-27-2012 09:31 AM

Pretty impressive! There were a couple guys on other forums that were saying even the 11/12 Gt500 would be super close, but they obviously aren't giving the car any credit.

Now Im looking forward to the 13 Shelby to run there.

radz28 02-27-2012 09:34 AM

I'm seeing there are more than one course for that track. Unfortunately - a lot of those times I posted didn't really distinguish if there were any differences. The Lightning Lap times were probably the most representative, IMO. Same people, same courses, etc.

SSmoked 02-27-2012 09:48 AM

Anyone who questions this cars ability REALLY needs to re-think that. The ZL1 is a friggen monster, and its not to be messed with.

KKreme15 02-27-2012 09:50 AM

This was driven by a GM engineer, most likely. I wonder how it fill fare in the lightning lap when someone who isn't used to it drives it?

Crowley 02-27-2012 09:52 AM

ZL1 is going to be the complete package. No doubt about it .. Great time and puts that car in great company!

What the H..... 7/10 off? No way. I apologize for not giving my new car its proper dues. But I am curious....

WHAT WOULD MXO AUTOMATIC A6 do on a course like this? We need some A6 comps. Please!!
