2019 C7 Corvette ZR1 Allegedly Set Record Time At Willow Springs6
The 2019 C7 Corvette ZR1 has slain a handful of lap records on the track, and standing record at Willow Springs may be the next to fall.
According to discussion on the Corvette Forum, Randy Pobst may have posted a 1:20.99 time at Willow Springs during Motor Trend’s Best Driver’s Car competition. If the figure is true, the Corvette ZR1 will have taken down the Porsche 911 GT2 RS—an arch rival. The latter set a 1:21.08 with Pobst behind the wheel at an earlier date.
However, another photo from the car’s cockpit shows a handful of other laps with a “current” time readout of 1:20.5 after a few 1:26 runs by Pobst. The car was also running in 100-degree heat, which would make the times all the more impressive.
We’ll have to take the information with a grain of salt until MT publishes the official times from its BDC competition. But, Willow Springs may have a new king in the near future. Check out the quick video of Pobst flying down the straight up above, too.

That would be huge!
Put it on the ‘Ring!
This is what makes GM better then the competition. The cars that GM puts can perform in a straight line and kill at the track as well.
GM makes cars that are faster in a straight line and on the track? What? Better than which manufacturers? Not Porsche, that’s for sure. I guarantee that the ZR-1 did not turn that time.
But this is a car with a leafspring it couldn’t be putting down numbers like that no way …
PS I love my C7 Zeos six
Not accurate. Watch and read the story when it comes out. I know this for sure.
