It’s Motor Trend’s Best Driver’s Car competition season, and this year, the most powerful Corvette to ever leave the factory was invited. The 2019 C7 Corvette ZR1 was on hand at Laguna Seca raceway for testing, but so were two other special guests.
Two Corvette Forum members, “skank” and “Corvette_Nut,” got a sneak peek at testing on the track. But, both were told to keep quiet about results until the publication is ready to share their findings. We did learn MT has two Corvette ZR1s present: a low-wing and high-wing model with the ZTK performance package.
Chevrolet also sent a Corvette engineering, a mechanic and a marketing rep to support the world-beating Corvette in its BDC outing. The high-wing car was used for hot laps on Laguna Seca as well.
We’ll have to stay tuned to see how the Corvette ZR1 manages in the competition, but it’s facing some serious competition. The Porsche 911 GT2 RS, McLaren 720S and others are also vying for the crown.
