Geez...well if nothing else testing like that tells the team to make sure and waterproof the driver's seat.

But consider if they ARE in fact able to tame the Ring with the Z/28 that will be absolutely killer on pretty much any other track anywhere else. Stielow is quite experienced; he knows about suspensions so I'm sure he's aware of Colin Chapman's old winning-Formula-One-championships philosophy of "soft springing and good damping". With today's computer-controlled cars the Z/28 might just come with more than one "track" setting; one for rough tracks and one for smoother tracks. I can only imagine what someone like Colin Chapman could have done with today's technology.

Can't wait to see what they finally come up with.
