Jan Magnussen Attacks the Nurburgring in a Corvette ZR1
Jan Magnussen Attacks the Nurburgring in a Corvette ZR1. Unfortuantely,
this was a day that the 'ring was open to the public and traffic slowed
down the 638 hp Corvette several times. Still, a great way to see how a
professional race car driver attacks one of the most difficult road courses
in the world.

2010 Corvette ZR1 versus 2008 Dodge Viper ACR, Viper slides off track
Here is a video of my 2010 Corvette ZR1 versus a 2008 Dodge Viper ACR at
Harris Hill Road Raceway in San Marcos, Texas. I chase the Viper until he
slides off the track and sets the grass on fire. Fire Department had to
come out and extinguish the grass fire (oops). Listen to the rocks bounce
off my car...that is the real ouch!

Corvette ZR1 Nurburgring 7:26.4
I know many people have been very interested in how fast the ZR1 would be
at the Ring...
Most car enthusiasts are quite familiar with the Nürburgring. Built in the
1920's near Cologne, Germany, "the Ring" is considered to be the toughest
and most challenging race track in the world.
Over the last two weeks, we have been doing our final tuning and testing
there before we start ZR1 production cars. This morning (Friday June 27),
General Motors development engineer Jim Mero drove the Corvette ZR1 around
the Nürburgring in a time of 7:26.4.
Jim commented after the lap that conditions were good except for a strong
headwind down the main straight and that the lap was solid, but he felt
there were a few places he could have gone faster.
The car was bone stock with the exception of the communications and safety
equipment. The tires were production Michelin Pilot Sport 2's. These
tires have been developed specifically for the ZR1 and will have impressive
wet traction and wear (tread wear rating = 220), in addition to excellent
dry road holding. Chassis alignment and vehicle height were set to factory
specs. Likewise, the engine calibrations were absolutely stock, emissions
compliant and the car ran on pump (not racing) fuel. The vehicle was
exactly like the cars that will be built in Bowling Green, Kentucky and
sold around the world later this summer.
Despite posting one of the fastest times ever run by a production car,
Nürburgring lap times were not an over-riding priority in the development
of the ZR1. The truth is, if the only priority was speed at the ring, the
car would not be very pleasant to drive on American roads. The ZR1 is an
incredibly capable track machine, but unlike most ultra-high performance
cars, it is very easy to live with on a daily basis.
The timed lap was run with a rolling start, a departure from our previous
practice of standing starts. This is more aligned with current industry
practice. The lap was electronically timed and confirmed with two
hand-held stopwatches. .
2008 Dodge Viper ACR: From L.A. to Bonneville
CHECK OUT THE VIPER AC-R ARTICLE:
We're about to make our first high-speed run in the still-black 2008 Dodge
Viper ACR when the old guy pulls up to our makeshift pit. He looks exactly
like the guy you'd expect to meet in the middle of the Bonneville Salt
Flats, like a worn-out Hank Williams, Jr.
Over the deafening cackle of his Cummins-powered diesel pickup, he yells,
"What's you boys doin'?"
"We're going to make a few runs in this Viper here."
"Yeah, how fast will she run?"
"We don't really know. Maybe 190 or so."
By the expression on his face, it's obvious ol' Hank has figured out that
we have no idea what we're doin'. He knows we're just a bunch of yahoos
with a fast car. He takes a good long look at the big winged Viper, then he
shuts off the truck's engine so we can hear him better.
"When you're going fast, the slightest gust of wind can flip you," he says.
"That's why we only ran early in the morning when the air was calm."
We look up at the mid-afternoon sun and wonder what we've gotten ourselves
"And make sure you don't run out of room," he continues. "You think you
have all the space in the world, then Floating Mountain is suddenly right
in your face. I remember when I went for 300 mph back in 1978; my chutes
didn't open and I almost didn't get her stopped." He runs his fingers
through a white beard. "Didn't make 300 either," he adds. "Only 280."
Great. We thought this Bonneville thing was as easy as holding our foot
down until the speedometer stopped moving. Now Mr. Monday Night has us
imagining our $100,000 Viper sliding across the Utah desert on its roof.
Viper ACR conquers the Nürburgring - SRT
Watch the Viper ACR become the fastest production car to drive the
Nürburgring Nordschleife. The Nürburgring is often described as the most
technically challenging purpose-built road course in the world. This is the
place where automakers test their vehicles for proper suspension tuning and
endurance abilities. The 12.9-mile north loop has long been the global
standard bearer for sports cars since its construction in the 1920s. For
these reasons, SRT believes it is important to show the world that the
Viper ACR is capable -- and dominates.
On September 14, 2011, veteran GT driver Dominik Farnbacher and the Viper
ACR lapped the Green Hell in 7:12.13 -- a full two seconds faster than its nearest competitor.
