    It might be a narrow win but it's still a win. Which track was that again? Why were they competing?

    Narrow win for one lap, gap will start to widen as the Vette overheats. But if they can solve the engine, transmission, and power steering pump over heating issues, then the Vette would be a formidable alternative to the Viper.

    Really, the lap times are meaningless if one doesn't know the driver's skill level. If the driver is not highly skilled; then, I bet he wouldn't be taking advantage of the ACR's aero like he should. Additionally, the less skilled the driver, the more any computerized assistance will be a factor in lap times. In some ways, this test could be more indicative of what an intermediate level track guy might experience. In that way it is certainly a valid measure for some potential buyers; but, not a measure of the car's ultimate capability.

    How do you have a "Performance Car of the Year" shoot out and pick the car that came in fourth as the Performance car of the Year? It makes no sense.
