I think the Z/28 will run 7:33.
So far, every video I have seen on the ZL1 and Z/28 at nurburgring shows the Z/28 going through a set of turns a second faster than the ZL1. Same day and same conditions. I don't know if it's my imagination or what, but that's significant.
Doc's a little more optimistic than I am, but if GM is going to make this a track monster, then they just as well do it right from the beginning.
