The lap times at Virginia Raceway like a lot of tracks are a crock ie. misleading or unrepresentative eg. the 2019 ZR1 apparently did 2:37.25 with Jim Mero(after 24 hours of track testing)? Even the Ford GT did a 2:38.62 lap. So as i keep saying to peeps do your research before taking lap times at face value coz things are never what they seem :)

SpeedKing  1w ago @SpeedKing

For more context Mero's 2:37.25 in the 2019 ZR1 was 2.5 secs faster than Tony Quiroga who also only managed 2:44 in the Performante? On the rev limiter half a dozen times then lost control ending up in the bushes on a supposed 2:42 lap? Woeful driving and that's why lap times are only as good as the driver.

I meant this cars from 2019 lightning lap. Yeah, but is there unbiased magazine, even one?

Cocobe  1w ago @SpeedKing

As long as it’s the same batch of drivers it is what it is. You can’t take a factory driver’s lap after 24 hours of testing and fettling and compare it with a fat 200lb journalist lap. Same with Nurburgring lap times. If people can’t tell the difference then they aren’t even worth the time to argue over


User avatar

SpeedKing  1w ago @Cocobe

Nurburgring lap times are sought after and are given the bragging rights they deserve because it's the closest thing you'll get to driving a production road registered supercar on public roads similar to what is found at Targa Tasmania or Pike's Peak for example. This is where Lamborghini/Porsche etc get their marketing cred setting records.

Most peeps will click on a link comparing supercars on this site and gauge how fast the car is according to the stated lap time. They would be ignorant as to who the drivers are/tyres used etc for a particular lap on each track. This is why i consider the Nurburgring lap times definitive of what a car can actually do if you're good enough.

What a bloody Gag that ZR1 is. I cant believe some people actually believe engineering goes into these 'murican cars. Honestly, fitting a 285 section front tyre should be bordering on criminal negligence. The less educated are astounded with the "grip" this car has without even thinking about tyres. Sure you get a crap ton of grip, but the second you even SEE rain you might aswell travel on foot.

The americans like to publish lap times now because they actually believed they have engineered their cars to be better at cornering. DING! Wrong again. Fitting hyper sticky rubber the width of a district is not engineering! It is a lazy solution selected by lazy companies to impress yahoos with meaningless laptimes when the car becomes a public danger at the sight of rain.

720s and performante achieve far superior laptimes with far narrower and safer tyres. THAT is engineering. Not a ham-fisted approach that americans possess.

VIR Lap record   2y ago

2017 corvette z06 (with z07 package) got 2:39.77 at VIR Grand Course this summer due to improved calibration offered in all their 17s and onward plus they have a retro fit availa or for 15 and 16 z06's. The z06 time you have there of 2:41.32 was from the 2015 z06 when it first came to market. Both the new and previous times were from their driver Jim Mero. The new time was posted on a promo video at SEMA and again more recently he posted it personally on corvette forum in the "Ask Tadge" section. This is a new lap record and I ask that you please update this list

Some of these lap times are wrong, because they were taken from the Car & Driver lightning lap test, which uses the Grand West Course (4.1 mile) configuration instead of the Grand East Course configuration.

It is only a single laptime, If other surface and are just as fantastic, Then that should calm any doubts about it, But Not every car performs the same on every track.


User avatar

saxy  3y ago

@DodgeHemi. You do realize the GT3 RS put in nearly identical lap times as the Z06 (when it's not broken) at Laguna and other tracks.

We know at NO track is the Z06 faster than the ACR. Yet here the grand sport which has nearly 200hp less than the Z06, puts in a lap time just 3 seconds behind an ACR on such a large track.

Perhaps all that can be said is there's a lack of consistency in the laps.


User avatar

whaaaa???  3y ago

Something's definitely wrong here...the 2.44.2 time for the ACR along with the Grandsport's time of 2.47.1 etc. and all the other 2016 Car and Drive Lightning Lap times seem accurate. What's not accurate is that fastestlaps calls this the Grand East Course when, if you look at the issue, the map they say they tested on was the Grand West Course. It appears there are slight but noticeable differences between both track layouts, am I missing something here? Also, I feel that C&D has always tested using the Grand West Course. I haven't verified that or the times but I wonder how many other of these times are incorrectly posted here under the Grand East Course times??


User avatar

DodgeHEMI426  3y ago

Why is that too fast? The GS Z07 has only 40 hp less than the GT3 RS and with all that aero, those semi-slicks and the world class brakes I'm not surprised it's right in there. The cornering capabilities are just out of this world. The 570 S is much less radical in terms of tires and the like so again, I was expecting this.


User avatar

BR2+  3y ago

That is one of the ideas i was thinking, hat GrandSport time just seems way too fast, I know a GS is damn near a ZO6 without the power, So its alot more manageable and confidence inspiring and less batshite crazy overall, And Chevrolet knows how to make a car handle, But It just seems TOO fast, They all seem too fast, But that one stands out the most, Followed by the R8 V10.


User avatar

saxy  3y ago

LOL... that grand sport time... unless GM slipped in with their own guys and team to prep and run the lap themselves. Perhaps they just had a team of journalists drive them. and sometimes you got captain slow and sometimes you got the stig.

Chanante  3y ago

In willow spring Huracan is 5s faster. Is loght and have much better tires. Depends of a track. If the track is very technical the diference is biguer.

On the other hand a super car like a 458 in a profesional drivee hands have better times than a Turbo S. R8 and turbo S are faster in all cases and in the regular drivers hands but a 650S or 458 are faster in the limit.
