Default First Vette - BG, Ky

I just purchased a 2011 Z06 CE #49. Was looking for a C5Z06 for HPDE at the NCM Motorsports Park and found this beauty. 11k miles, bone stock new Pirellis, SSE color, laminated build sheet, new Loyds Z06 mats with originals cleaned and stored. Everything Iíve read so far says the Michelin Sport Cup 2 are the best HPDE tires and the valve guides are a weak link. Any input or suggestions would be great. Iím going to go out and just check out the HPDE at NCM this weekend and see what it is all about.

Welcome to the forum and congratulations on your C6!
At least your car feels right at home in Bowling Green.
You'll probably get best results about the valve guides posting your question in the C6 section of the forum at https://www.corvetteforum.com/forums...-2005-2013-14/
There's a performance area in the C6 section that can probably address your tire question. You could also check https://www.corvetteforum.com/forums...roadracing-23/
Best wishes with your HPDE efforts!
