I agree, no videos, no witnesses. No dice.
When the ACR ran the 7.22 at the Ring. Motor Trend was there and witnessed it.

Yep, probably fake. Not that a perfectly driven ZR1 couldn't gain 4 seconds.

The time has now been removed from the site, so I guess there was nothing to back up the claim.

GM was simply not ready for this to become public knowledge just yet. JMHO.

If it matters at all (and it doesn't ) the IP is registered to RoadRunner high speed internet services in the Virginia area.

But does that mean that it is true? I am not doubting the time could happen but I only see mention of it on 2 blogs and both of thoes were credited to a poster named Xeyad and point back to the fastlaps.com site that now has removed the time. Not buying it until I see some thing more offical.

No independant witnesses? Just GM there?
What are they afraid of?
