My class was in late August-the dead of Summer. But it's so dry there that I really didn't sweat while out in the sun. And I can sweat just thinking about it....

Just try to avoid rain. It rained a lot there this spring. We were lucky and had the only two dry and sunny days all week.

Default Zr1

We have been twice so far. once in late Oct and once in early Nov. We are scheduled to go back for ZR1 class Oct 31 and Nov 1st.

Going in the summer isn't an option for me. I'm way too hot natured as it is and I sweat profusely. It's already all I can do to stay hydrated. I did go to Bondurant in the dead of summer, but they were already using Hellcats and they don't run hot like our Corvettes tend to do and their a/c works a lot better. I thought it might just be my 16 Z06's a/c, but no. I've driven many more C7's and my new 19 ZR1 just doesn't have a world class a/c system. Yes the ZR1 is better, but you still have to get the car moving for it to get cold. Those Hellcats got cold sitting still.
