This is the last of several laps trying to reel in a 2017 CTS-V sedan at Inde Motorsports Ranch on Saturday. Goddamn, those things are rocketships. 640hp just walks away in the straights compared to 320 in mine. I was on borrowed Toyo RA1's that were reportedly 7-8 years old, and I was 3 seconds a lap faster on them than I was on the relatively new Nitto NT01's that I corded earlier in the day. Toyos were 275's and the Nitto's were 255's but damn.
Well, he wasn't taking them badly, he was practicing a late-apex approach, but there are a few corners there where I *think* it doesn't pay off, and I was going inside earlier. He might get a faster speed on the exit, but it's taking him longer to get there because so much more distance traveled, and not enough time on the throttle afterward to pay a reward.
