Hate to break the bad news, but the blue car is the Stingray, not a Z06. Strange thing is the intro still picture is a Z06, but the video is a C7 Stingray?? Weird. Maybe my eyes need checking.
Good catch Jim. The pic of the blue car at the beginning of the clip has what are either silver or chrome wheels and has the Z06 front fascia, hood and flared rear fenders...????? Guess they have at least 2 blue cars running around the rung??

Nope. Your eyes are A-ok. It's definitely a stingray.

Yes, a very good catch. Unless you stop the video most will not notice it. But that Stingray is still flying around there. Very Impressive !!

I will tweet to Dale Lomas (Bridge to Gantry) the mistake that he made.

MR. Bridge to Gantry- Dale Lomas has been notified of the Stingray video. I'm sure he will clarify it in the morning as it's 3:00am Germany time.

stop it at 18 sec and notice the very low profile tires, almost look flat. You can hear the shift as well climbing the hill. M7 for sure.

By the way, the Stingray is an incredible platform for a base car. Ours did 11.3 sec. 0-120 on several different attempts, and 0-60 in 3.6 seconds. This with our intake onboard (not an ad) only and a couple changes to the torque management control nannies.

That day it was 50 degrees out, so our TC was very active, and it did not allow full throttle until about 50 mph. Turned off, times went to hell, but a 20 mph roll blew the tires away and when the hard shift to 2nd hit, they continued to roast to redline. I only wish I had that on video.

Maybe the ZO7 is too stiff for the ring? If the car is bottoming out with as much of a fender gap that already exists, maybe the combination of a lot of downforce and stiffness on a "uneven surface" (why it bottoms out) is a bit to much for the ring?

Sometimes softer goes faster

The ZR1 that set the record had "standard" ZR1 aero and suspension

Just like F1, the fastest setup is usually the one that touches the ground from time to time.

Look at it as the cost of going faster.

New video from Dale Lomas of Bridge to Gantry on ZO6 with what appears to be a Auto 8, aero level 2. Put your Bose headphones on and listen to that LT4. Awesome !!!!

It would be icing on the cake if they can set a new corvette record at the ring with a non-ZO7 model.

Although that might give some of the haters here a little indigestion

This blue one might be a ZO7 option package with the clear center wicker bill left off. That appears to be whats done here. Maybe the top aero is slowing them down too much on the last big straight. It would not surprise me to see them do this as that last straight is huge and the ZR1 did 183mph on it.

If the ZO7 package slows the top speed down on that last straight that could be devastating to a good time.
