Realistically - low 7:30's

Hopefully - mid to high 7:20's

I don't see it out beating some of the cars on that list....

Beating the Mclaren MP4-12C on that track, and the Lamborghini Aventador?

I am hopeful for the Z/28's performance but the highest car with similar weight/power as the Z/28 is the Nissan GT-R.... That is a tall order as the GT-R put down a smoking time on the ring...

Another with similar weight is the Lamborghini Aventador... But beating that? Guess we will just have to wait and see.

Makes me feel more secure in tracking the forthcoming Z/28. Good work Chevy.

My second observation is that this is superb motivation to always have track insurance. I know the folks at Lockton Affinity, awesome people and product.
Sorry Z...I just moved it to the other thread...lol...

Makes sense :-)

Besides, the forum will go down and be restored with half the new threads deleted so it doesn't matter anyway! Lol...

Seems crazy to beat the ZL1 by any huge margin, but the tires are a huge factor.
I'm in at 7:31:57

I think you are going to be very disappointed, the Z/28 should beat the ZL1 Ring time by a significant margin.

7:29:87 I think Chevy is throwing down, 10 secondsish slower than the C6.

A rumor of the Z ring time passed though my office a short time ago. Anyone else hear any Ring time gossip today?

Wow, I was pretty close.

Not bad for being down on power and torque compared to the ZL1.

I think the Z/28 will run 7:33.
