If anyone is planning to do the 'Ring for the first time, this is worth watching a few times! The ZR1 has got great brakes! :drive

Amazing laptime really considering the hype surrounding the more "sophisticated" Nissan GTR vs Porsche GT2 lap time race. Just shows what a good basic platform with immense power can do. The cornering speeds in some parts aren't particularly high, but the way the car accelerates is amazing.

I was quite chuffed with my lap time until I saw this vid, this guy can really drive. To put a big old ZR1 round in that time is incredible, I've always thought it is a bit of a supercharged pudding of a car.

I managed a humble 9.31 earlier in the year, a bit pathetic in comparison. :(
