Track Battle: C7 Corvette on Racing Tires Meets a Modified C6 Grand Sport
We know any way you shake it, the C7 Corvette Stingray is a decent leap ahead of the base C6 ‘Vette, but what if you compare a nearly stock Stingray to a decently modded C6?
In the Fast Lane Car video below, you’ll see a 2014 C7 Corvette on racing tires battle a 2010 C6 Corvette Grand Sport modified for SCCA T1 competition. With go-fast bits like a racing suspension, racing headers, and nearly 500 horsepower, the C6 Grand Sport should beat it’s successor, shouldn’t it? That’s what the two videos below shall reveal.
Driving both Corvettes back-to-back at High Plains Raceway in Colorado is Mike Pettiford: a man who has won 35 SCCA divisional national championships — that’s more than any other racing driver in SCCA history. You already know the C6 and C7 are going to get a decent neck-wringing.
