Oh noes!!! Aaron Gold, a producer on Top Gear USA, met with some misfortune in the rain at VIR with a ZL1 :( :( :(

Damage is just cosmetic however, according to GM.

Just because it says PRESS on their badges does not mean they can drive.

I find it sad that to drive the ZL1 while you work for GM you have to go through special training and be certified on ALL high performance cars...but they hand them over to the guys who probably would be better off with a video game console and let them tear them up.

Glad nobody was hurt.

tmandoug1 02-27-2012 05:12 PM

Whew glad i did not order red? Wonder who's that is,,,,lol.

It seems the awesome suspension of the ZL1 isn't idiot-proof enough.

radz28 02-27-2012 05:28 PM

If that were a producer from UK, I'd be suspicious :) j/k

Amazing how many comments here on the driver's skills without truly knowing the facts.......who knows, could have been road or weather conditions or what ever. Pretty quick to defend the car and hang the driver.

Mr Twisty 02-27-2012 05:39 PM

It happens to the best

Happy_Dan 02-27-2012 05:43 PM

Anything could have happened at a track day. You just don't know. I just want mine!

MrDew 02-27-2012 05:52 PM

Doesnt surprise me one bit. Even the video that was posted earlier had some scary moments in it... there's a fine line whenever you push something to it's limits...

Follow the driver's facebook post. It was the weather, but if it was his car he wouldn't have push it as hard on an unfamiliar car in this condition. He was jokingly "blaming" it on the rain. If I get to drive someone else car without any worries, I might be more willing to push the limits. I drove my car over the weekend, with similar power and I was on the verge of breaking loose a few times on a beautiful sunny day. You have to respect the power of the car and the environment you are in. There is nothing you can do to a car that can stop someone from pushing the limits and crash any vehicle short of taking the keys away.

Yeah Top Gear USA is just bad. Way too much goofy stuff for my taste. I just watched the Camaro-Mustang-Challenger episode and it's not even funny. I would much rather them try to provide an objective review of the cars with some humor thrown in than what they do. They try so hard to be funny and it just doesn't work.
