Default Love watching a bulls***ter get called out! (Other place related)

Jeremy from Georgia on Track Off Track New Stingray

Cliffs: Guy claims to have laid down a 1:32.xx lap at Road Atlanta in a stock C7 including brakes, tires, and alignment. Posts two videos that, when timed, get no closer than 1:43. Several people whio have actually laid down times under 1:40 (My best at Road ATL is 1:38.7xx) ask for further clarification.

Eventually the Corvette team driver is cited as having said his best at Road ATL was 1:33.xx on a track alignment.

Is it wrong to hope he's stuck inside?

Dre is a good friend. We actually worked together for a couple years.

He know's his shit and has been on Road Atlanta in his C5Z, C6Z, and a couple sportbike's he's owned too. We used to park our silver and yellow Z's side by side at the office a few years back.

Mark, I appreciate that you know him. If he's claiming 1:32 and posts videos showing 1:43 at best, he's got a credibility gap. I was working a hell of a lot harder than that to do 1:38.

The fastest I've ever seen at a track day there was 1:43, it was a C6 Z06.

You don't have to prove it. I'll vouch for you. I was there and I passed him on my road bike and finished with a 1:52.
