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. .

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.

2009 ZR1 engine rev
Bloomington Gold Corvette Car show 2008...the 2009 Corvette ZR1 was just tested to be the fastest car in production. When tested at a track in Germany it beat the previous world record lap time recently held by the 911 turbo GT3 by 20 seconds. I was told all this by the main engineer of the ZR1 project, the one revving the engine.





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.
