Has anyone ran into a 2018 ZL1 1LE on track yet?

 

There were a few ZL1 1LEs at COTA this past weekend. Quickest one was 2:27 on Pirelli DH slicks with a fairly experienced driver running good lines. Like the gen 5 Viper ACR (2:21 on OEM street tires), their top speed on the straights was relatively low, compromising their times.

 

AMG GTR on OEM street tires w/very good driver ran 2:22 w/passenger; and 720s (165 mph front straight!, 185 mph back straight!) ran 2:19 on street tires at hot (90F) ambient temp. There were also a few Performantes, but didn't get a time on those as drivers were learning track. New R8 v10 ran 2:21 on Hoosiers w/passenger and same driver that set AMG GTR time.

 

AMG GTR drives like a Viper, except the rear wheel steering resulted in disconcerting rear end wiggles over the bump in T10 (a WOT high speed left hand kink that now has a bump at the apex).

 

FBO GT-R on R888R will run 2:27, FBO E85 w/slicks & aero 2:19. Stock GT-R on Dunlops is ~2:30.

I can't imagine being at 185 MPH and knowing I had to go down to whatever Turn 12's entry speed is..  Would not wanna be second guessing my brakes.
