GM never released the Ring time for the Grand Sport, Z06 or ZR1. Makes me think they werenít quite what they hoped they would be.

C7 Z06 is #17 on the list. Still early so there is hope for the ZR1.

And I'm not aware of any time for the 6th gen SS (or SS/1LE) or 3rd gen CTS-V or the ATS-V.



Does that mean GM didn't like what those cars ran either?

That was done by a European magazine I believe not by GM.

GM said they would release a lap time for the Z06. If I remember right, team Camaro said they wouldnít run a 1LE time. They didnít run a 5th gen 1LE time.

Not sure if you are referring to Gen 5 or Gen 6 - but Gen 6 lap time for ring for 2018 ZL1 1LE was 7:16.04 and a hell of a drive

Enjoy a great video on you tube of that amazing lap - link below

I meant SS 1LE. Keep forgetting there are more 1LEs available.

Probably why there wasn't much publicity on it. Still a documented good run.

He's made a dozen posts in the last month or so. Maybe don't expect an immediate reaction.
