’02 Z06 Corvette
People always say that the car is just an extension of the driver. We absolutely agree because our Z06 is pretty dialed in and makes driving through most situations relatively easy. Case in point, we managed to whittle our time in the autocross from 45.185 Saturday’s wet course to 40.83 during Sunday’s dry morning session. With the numbers set, we handed the keys to one of our shooters Robert McGaffin for fun runs, only to have him match us on his first hit. By his third run, he was running even quicker with a 40.377, and honestly, it was pretty cool to see. The road course was an absolute blast, and we’re looking forward to our next opportunity to stretch the Z06’s legs. And when it came to the speed stop, it was a personal favorite. The wide-open throttle acceleration was a rush and stabbing the brake as hard as possible was another cool feeling in itself. More importantly, the number-one lesson learned: seat time, seat time, seat time! Regardless of what you’re driving that alone will make all the difference in the world.
*Best times combined from Saturday and Sunday.
