GoPro video I took a few weeks ago of my stock Corvette Stingray C7 Z51 2LT at Laguna Seca. One full hot lap then some passes of a McLaren, Ferrari, Porsche & more

Second track day in this car. Prob was at 85-90% of the car's limits with a 1:47 best lap time (beat my prior best of 1:52 a few months ago in a 662 HP Ford Mustang Shelby GT 500). Still have room to go given a pro has done 9 seconds faster on the same track in same car. This car is a blast! Tons of responsive power, strong brakes, insane grip, and minimal oversteer/understeer. Point, gas, and go :) Also, if you want to see my first track day at Sonoma Raceway, I posted it here:

Details: Ran with Hooked on Driving in the C Advanced/Pointby group. Car has 460 HP and 465 lb-ft of torque, manual trans, weighs 3300 pds, and has the magnetic suspension and performance exhaust. Only "mod" is Dot 4 brake fluid and 15w-50 oil. Was run in Race Mode Sport 2 (traction control and stabillitrack off), Active Rev Matching on (huge help!), and tires at 26psi cold. Filmed with a GoPro Hero 2 Motorsports Edition with LCD BacPac. External mic is a simple lavaliere mic taped right above the exhaust on the rear license plate. Edited with Camtasia Studio 8.
