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??

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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!!
