Thanks to CorvetteBlogger, we have an article and a video of a driving instructor Larry taking CorvetteBlogger's Keith Cornett around Sebring at speed. Here's part of the article describing the experience:
Corvetteblogger said:While attending an open track session at Sebring International Raceway on Saturday, I had the opportunity to ride with Larry who was one of the instructors for Chin Motorsports, the organization which hosted the event. Larry was very popular this weekend as he was driving an Arctic White 2014 Corvette Stingray Z51 Coupe.
Larry’s previous Corvette was a C6 Corvette Z06 which had participated in over 100 track events. Larry says of all the Corvette Stingray Z51s built, hardly any of the owners will really “drive” the car to its limits on the track, which he thought was “just a shame” since it’s on the track where the 7th generation Corvette really shows its true high performance nature.
Larry drove his Corvette hard, diving into corners and allowing that 465 lb-ft torque from the LT1 to power down the straights. The Corvette had nearly 5,000 miles on the odometer and still has its stock Michelin tires and brakes. The Corvette was set up in the Sport driving mode with traction control off and our speeds reached upwards of 140 mph on the long back stretch before turn 17."
And here's the video:
