C7 Corvette ZR1 Nürburgring Team Revealed? | GM Authority

A photo of Mero’s retirement gift posted to the*Corvette Forum*shows a picture collage of Mero’s accomplishments behind the wheel. At the bottom reads seven lap times with the now-retired driver behind the wheel at the Nürburgring, and at the far right sits the C7 Corvette ZR1. The time? 6:57.00.
Chevrolet has never made a lap time for the C7 Corvette ZR1 public, but there’s a catch to the 6:57 time shown. It’s denoted with an “S” at the end. We don’t officially know what the “S” stands for, but forum members speculate it could denote segment times, rather than one full lap. Thus, the 6:57 may not be an official lap with the car. Instead, it would add up Mero’s times from each segment of the Nürburgring clocked at different times.

The team also never gave the public an official time for the C7 Corvette Z06, either, but the photo shows a 7:10.00 time for the car minus an “S.” The time appears legitimate noting Sport Auto lapped the Z06 in 7:13 previously.
