Yup, I was handed the key fob to a C6 Z06 and got to drive it while at Road America for the ALMS C6R race this weekend. :D

But I must be honest with everyone, I only drove it about 5 feet backward, and then forward to help line it up in the Corvette Corral at Road America.

Having a fantastic time at the track!

Hope to see some of our members in the Corvette Corral tomorrow, Saturday & Sunday! :cheers:

So did the seats feel OK? Did you get good mileage? Were you tired when you got out?

Did the car leave you wanting more? :)

Excellent pic, Bill!

I have a digital pic, but can't post it from my laptop at the hotel. Most likely, Bill, it's the same red Z06 we both drove.

Seats were excellent!

Wish I was there. RA is my favorite USA track. Long and fast.
LOVED the old Can-Am boomers on that track.
I have LOTS of war stories from there, both crewing and spectating.
St. Jovite (Mont-Tremblant) is my favorite Candadian track, eh ?
Oops, that should be "oui ?", based on it's location east of the river.

RA. Brats, beer, boobs, and corn-on-the-cob. Not in that order. :cheers:

Did it feel like a mid 11 sec car or a low 11 sec car when you sat in it?

cool! Looks like the same one I sat in at Infineon/sears point a month ago at the corvette corral here.

RA, has anyone played Forza for x box? Is it just me or are the straightaways way longer in the game? I watched a video of a c5 owner lapping RA and the straightaways were way shorter....
