Yeah sorry I don't buy it. 2 seconds slower than a 2008 GT-R? And when I look at the track layout I don't think the Corvette should have issues with that. I think I'd rather believe the German comparison test (Sport Auto) of a Nismo GT-R vs. a C7 Z06 as it seems more believable (both cars tested are from "foreign" countries and both were driven by the same driver). In that test, the Z06 was two seconds faster than the Nismo on the small Hockenheimring.

Yeah it's over 4 secs slower than the Nissan GT-R Nismo?? Yet another suspicious lap time. The driver of the Z06 is 48 years old whereas the driver of the Nismo is 63 years old and they're both drift drivers lol...
