TFLcar had the chance to check out and compare two versions of the Chevy Corvette and watch them pitted against each other on the racetrack. First, we had a SCCA class winning and race prepared 2010 Chevy Corvette C6 go out for a hot lap.  It clocked in an impressive 1:56.74 around the High Plains Raceway (HPR) in Deer Trail, Colorado.

Now, it’s the 2014 Chevy Corvette C7’s turn. It’s basically a stock version of the car fitted with wider Hoosier racing tires on light weight rims.  No other modifications were made to this Stingray.  Can it equal or beat an all out racing Corvette?

Professional driver, Mike Pettiford of GO 4 IT Racing Schools, is once again the pilot.   He took both cars on several warm up and hot laps to get the best time.

Also, see the production lap record set by the 2013 SRT Viper on the same racetrack last summer.
