Hello,

As some of you know we were recently at Auto Club Speedway with the Cadillac Challenge competing in the C3 class with our CTS-V Coupe Legionnaire a couple of weeks ago. As always Auto Club NEVER disappoints. If you haven't seen the Cadillac Challenge coverage, make sure you check out the recap video here -

When we are on the track we do share the track with other cars. This makes for interesting situations where we get to run against other types of vehicles. Here is a video that another track member took of their experience at Auto Club. There is a pretty interesting perspective of the interaction between the D3 Legionnaire CTS-V Coupe and the track prepped ZR1. Watch them drag it out on the big straight away up to 170mph.

I saw some hair flowing from the Corvette. Was that a female driver???????

Yup!!! She was one of the quickest cars out there that day. She would carry an incredible amount of speed into turn one :hmm:.

I like the way she swings high to pass the Legionnaire (she was blowing past everyone else) and it was like, um, ohhhhhh no you don't. Although on that line unfortunately you had to lift and she didn't to enter turn 1.

LOL, precisely! Yeah I'm pretty it surprised her when we got on that straight. Certainly had to lift going into one or we would have made the worlds first ZR-V... :crowded:

Nice drag race. That V is very quick to keep up with a well-driven ZR1 on the front straight.
