Side by side comparison of both the Nissan GTR and the Corvette ZR1 at the Nürburgring (Nordschleife). These two videos were released by GM and Nissan as evidence of lap records, both starting a timer at different points on the track. To compare the laps, Garage419 has used a visual landmark to sync both videos; the pit-exit sign. We invite both drivers of the two cars to come to our garage to discuss their individual laps. - Garage419

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.

ZR1 vs GT-R at the Nurburgring Sync at 00:00:00
Here is a video combining the GT-R (7:29) run with the ZR1 run (7:26) at the 'Ring.
Both GT-R and ZR1 runs are using the original videos in their original timeline (no time stretching). Both times are off with respect to each other. So I added a timer using Sony Vegas' timecode Video Event FX in its default settings.
The 2 videos were sync'ed at the point immediately before the 00:00:00 started to tick. It's also at this point where the Sony Vegas timecode was started. Actually, at this starting time, the ZR1 is already ahead (slight head-start). I could have used the landmarks to sync but I decided to trust the timings done by both GM and Nissan.
The Nissan timer is closer to the Sony Vegas timer (both end points). The GM timer seems to get an accumulated delay of a little more than 1 second. For example, when the ZR1 finished at 7:26.4, the Nissan timer was at 7:27.58 and the Sony Vegas timer was at 7:27.580. When GT-R finished at 7:29.03, Vegas timer was at 7:29.015. The best way to confirm which of these 3 timers is correct is to use your own stopwatch as this YouTube clip is played.
I would need to create another comparison video where I will stretch the ZR1 timeline so that it is in sync with the GT-R timer at both 00:00:00 and 7:26.4.
