A little friendly competition never hurt anyone, right? That’s the case here at this track day at Fontana Raceway. Today, we have a 2015 C7 Corvette Z06 and a Porsche 911 GT3 fighting for supremacy to overtake one another, but there’s a catch.
The driver of the 2015 Z06 has two half-days worth of track experience under his belt, and has an instructor onboard with him. The 911 GT3 driver is a professional race car driver, left nameless. The 2015 Corvette Z06 goes to work with its Performance Data Recording system capturing the action as it unfolds.
It’s easy to tell these two are duking it out the entire time, being waved on by fellow drivers on the track. But if you watch, you can also see the 911 GT3 is at its limits, with minor slips occurring. That allows the 2015 Z06 to get up close, and eventually overtake the pro driver for the lead. A victory for the home team. And it shows how confidence-inspiring the C7 Corvette Z06 is, too.
