    I based the start and stop points off the Chevy vids and talking to people who have been to that track for runs.

    Nope.

    Very nice work, thanks for the video! I'd love to know what tires were on the GT500 because they didn't seem/sound like they were race tires to me. If true, that makes that time even more impressive! :beer:

    Why is this such a shock? It's clear the gt500 made up all the ground on the massive power sections of the track.

    Fantastic find.

    Stunning lap. I'm very impressed. I wish I still lived in Europe after watching that.

    very nice. of course denial 5 with post up that the car is

    modded
    Ringer
    Both of the above
    Video is fake...

    All they have for the ZL1 is a ring time to hold on to, and the z/28 is already beating that...But of course they will say that they have the z/28 now as the GT500 killer....lol

    Travis...you've done well here. Somebody wanted that one to slip out and I'm quite sure there are a number of people at SVT/Ford grinning ear to ear at what you've done with it, as much as this battle has passed.

    Thanks for taking the time to put this together.



    ON EDIT:

    Holy smokes! I've never seen a linkBack list get so long so fast! Too bad everyone else can't see it.

    Thanks for getting this video to us!

    I was on the edge of my seat during some of those turns. That guy was driving the hell out of that GT500. I'm no pro driver, but it is amazing the speed he carried through that whole course.

    Both cars have muscle and are very even. According to the official times on this web site...the ZL-1 comes in at 7:41.27, Z/28 comes in at 7:37.47 and the home page of SVTP video shows the GT500 finishing at 7:39.28.

    Wish Ford would post an official time at the Ring and be listed along with the other outstanding cars on the list.

    Thank you SID, I told you all the GT500 mules were running 7:30-7:40.

    I am enjoying the squirming and whining on Camaro5. Of course, your "added" stopwatch isn't as accurate as Team Camaro's... Even though their stopwatch is wrong as well...

    Lots of damage to Team Camaro's credibility and reputation. Equally damaging to the z28 and ZL1's marketing plan. Which is 90% Nurburgring lap time based... I busted them sandbagging the '13 GT500 at Milford during a z28 media ride along.

    No credibility and a bad reputation...

    Edit: The excuses over there are getting pretty imaginative... Literally all the things I called the ZL1 and z28 out for is now the basis for their argument (They don't really have an argument anymore).

    Awesome video, and that Shelby has the same color/stripe combo as my car. Obviously the color had something to do with that impressive lap time.
