Nope. Maybe this summer of fall we will get some times. With the virus right now car testing has taken a back seat.

They will no doubt include the GT500 in the c&d lightning lap this year. Hopefully the CFTP car.

2019 GT350 on Cup2s did 1:36.83 @ Laguna Seca...is that good? is that fast?
2019 GT3350 is #54 on the list https://fastestlaps.com/tracks/laguna-seca-post-1988
...........#28 is a 10yr old Corvette
Sorry GT350 not worth the huge ADM... too many dealers wanted $20k over when I went shopping in 2016

Why do the lap times matter to you, OP? How often do you go to the track? If you do go to the track, do you use anything to record your lap time?

Yes, that's fast. Very close to a C7 Grand Sport making it a driver's race.

Yeah and a 2016 viper acr did 1:28, there is more to what makes a car than a lap time, gt350 is a world class drivers car in so many ways. Viper is the fastest manual track car ever, that by itself does not make it better than a gt500 or gt350, very very and I mean VERY few people can get the performance out of these cars that they have in them. A lap time is just that for 95+% of owners. Just because a corvette is faster than a gt350 does not make it better.

This is a fun list to look at because of so many cars and pretty much the same driver:

I think a 2:44s lap for the GT500 CFTP is a reasonable prediction given that would be exactly between a ZLE and a Ford GT.

... and agreed, someone else's laptimes especially a pro are completely irrelevant to most people. It's just fun to see what a pro can get out of these cars.

I got to the track often...15+ times a year
I use an AIM timer and then I review the PDR (C7Z) both data and video

Sooo, what did you run? Can we watch your PDR video?
