Once one begins to trust the vehicle, the best comes out. But, there’s a lot of trust to go into lapping a 1966 C2 Corvette at the Streets of Willow.
Edmunds took their resident 1966 Corvette and handed it over to Josh Jacquot to work his magic on the track. It’s apparent there’s a lot of work to do when taking a C2 Corvette to these kinds of limits, since most likely spend a lot of their time at the local drag strip running quarter miles.
Tuning into the video shows a fair amount of oversteer to be corrected, and it looks like quite the heavy clutch to work with the manual. But, as the publication points out, once you stop being afraid of the 1966 Corvette, it’s a true driver’s care; raw and pure, with no interference. No, it won’t lay down a time like a 2015 C7 Corvette Stingray, but you may have more fun in it.
