Car and Driver’s Lightning Lap 2023

It was that time again! for the 16th time Car and Driver took to Virginia International Raceway to judge cars by nothing more than what they can do on America’s most challenging 4.1 miles of racetrack.
This year C&D had 16 cars, devided into 5 classes, to put through their paces. And the 2023 Z06 came up on top with a lap time of 2:38.6. The 2nd fastest car was the 2023 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS at 2:40.5. Just for the record, the Porsche had an as-tested price of $186,975 vs. the Corvette at $141,855, a difference of $45,120! Oh, I should also point out that the 2:38.6 lap time of the Z06 is also the 5th all-time quickest in Lightning Lap history!

I got into Corvettes when I retired 11 years ago from a 40 year career of teaching chemistry and physics to high schoolers in South Dakota and bought a retirement gift to myself, a 1995 black on black coupe. It was a little tired with 95,000 miles on it but I thought it would be a great car for me to do a little wrenching on. I was able to do that and fixed all the little things that were wrong with it with the help of the factory service manual that was the first thing I bought after the Corvette. I was able to take it to the 2014 Black Hills Corvette Classic Rally. I think my wife enjoyed driving it as much as I did. A couple of my DIY improvements even made it into the Vette Vues magazine, a DIY route bag and a DIY foldable cup holder. After about seven years of ownership, I fulfilled another checkoff on my bucket list when I purchased a 2007 Le Mans blue metallic 3LT convertible. I am enjoying the Corvette community even more with this car and its HUD display. I believe in driving them and will do so as often as I can.
