From the Sport Auto website the following Hockenheim lap times: Boss 302 Laguna Seca 1.13,2; C63 AMG 1.13,6; M3 1.14,2; Mustang GT 5.0 (with dealer installed RTR package) 1.15,8; and no mention of a test with Camaro SS. If this lap of 1.18,9 was done by Horst Von Saurma (Sport Auto), well it does seem to show bias. I always thought the Mustang should have been closer to the M3, but 1.6 seconds slower isn't nearly as far off as this purported Camaro SS test. Since it isn't on the Sport Auto website, I really don't know if this is a legit lap time anyway. Has anyone seen this in print?

1:14.0 for the M3, a GT 5.0 is just as fast, GT 5.0 is faster then the SS, but i dont see why the Camaro SS is 5 seconds off, specially with Horst Von Saurma, Thas no excuse. Or maybe it was down to the weather or other conditions? or a car problem? im just guessing since i dont kno.

But i would like to see an American magazine, MotorTrend or Car&Driver tackle HockenHeim, all the US cars we want to see.

I agree. I see on the Sport Auto site that the Hockenheim time for the M3 is 1:14.2, and the Mustang RTR is 1:15.8, so 1:18.9 for a Camaro SS seems way off.

I was gonna say something earlier but...

I would have guessed it would be about a second or so off an M3s pace..

Yeah, I agree. I just checked on the Sport Auto website, and I don't see the Camaro SS test. They don't have it listed on their Hockenheim lap time at all. I think it might be a bogus time, although I don't get the magazine, and they might not update the website immediately. Or it could be from one of the other German magazines, and they could have some poor drivers. Hopefully Georg or someone else in Germany can clear this up.

This time has got to be bogus or one of the worst drivers out there. This is a slower time than the Chrysler Crossfire and 300C.. as if they are even remotely as good at the track as a Camaro SS.

At least it wasnt a autocar test. Those guys are the most bias testers I've seen.

Groovy, another lap time for the excellent Camaro SS, Georg will be pleased. Seems quite a bit slower than I would expect on this track. I kind of thought it would be close in lap time to the Mustang RTR (a Mustang GT variant). I assume this is from a Sport Auto test, right?
