We all know that the Corvette ZR1 is a beast, and today it has proved itself yet again. Jan Magnussen was at the wheel in the ZR1 this time and 73 turns later he was able to knock 4 seconds off the ZR1’s previous time of 7:26.4.
The new time of 7:22.4 seconds is fast. Really really fast, but it’s still .3 seconds behind Dodge’s best run in their Viper ACR. To be honest, these times should all be considered unofficial until the top manufacturers get together at the ‘Ring on the same day and run their cars at the same time in similar weather conditions. Then we’ll really have something to compare the cars against and nobody can call foul on using modified cars and upgraded tires. Porsche, I’m looking in your direction.
Stay tuned, I’m sure GM will be releasing the video soon!
