Spent the weekend at our autocross that our club puts on each year and
besides being hot for 2 days standing on asphalt there seems to me to
be a lack of C6 participation.
After the C5 came out in 3 years there were numerous C5s out there and
many more with the Z06 being added the next year. The C6 has been out
now into its fourth year with 2 weak years for the Z06 and there is
now just a few showing up. Plus their times are being pushed by the
Without getting into the pissing match about car modification and all
the other excuses why has the racing crowd not received the C6?
Talking with some of the skilled drivers that have driven both they
think the C6 just doesn’t have the same “personality” for autocross as
the C5. He then went out and borrowed a ’07 Z06 and run second fastest
time for the weekend only to be beat out later by a C4. Last year one
of the top drivers drove my C6 and their feeling was that it was too
heavy. The figures I have put that heavy remark at 6 pounds with a 5
(?) hp difference, pretty good seat of the pants analyses.
Fun weekend with lots of good Corvette folks, and a few dick heads to
keep you on your toes.
