[VIDEO] LG Motorsports Corvette ZR1 Sets Record Time at Spectre 341 Hill climb

LG Motorsports founder Lou Gigliotti and his 2010 Corvette ZR1 dominated last month’s Spectre 341 Hill Climb with the overall win and setting a record for the fastest Corvette. Lou released a new video of the run today complete with his signature multi-camera view with some awesome telemetry thrown in for good measure.

For those not familiar with the Spectre 341 Hill Climb, the 341 refers to Nevada state road 341, a 5.2 mile stretch of highway from Silver City, Nevada to Virginia City. The route features 22 turns and the elevation changes from 5,000 ft to 6,200 feet above sea level along the route.

One weekend each year, Deputies close the highway and Spectre Performance hosts a sprint against the clock with cars ranging from daily drivers to full track-prepped cars make the 5.2 mile run. Those that can do it in 3:41 or less gain entry to the 3:41 Club.

Lou set the fastest time of the event with a run of 3:14 in his modified Cyber Gray Corvette ZR1, shaving 7.3 seconds off his 2010 time and averaged 96.27 MPH. His time represents the fastest of all Corvettes and he’s only 4 seconds off the fastest time ever, 3:10.53 set by Spectra Performance founder Amir Rosenbaum in a highly modified Ferrari F40.

Forty-eight drivers made a combined 391 runs and five new members were added to the 3:41 Club. Aaron Pfadt was there with his Camaro (he made the club!) and we noted the drivers list included one Clark W. Griswald whose Winnebago made the run in 8:21 with an average speed of 37.33 MPH. Now that’s one way to spend a vacation!

The Spectre 341 Challenge is set for June 15-17, 2012. Visit www.Spectre341Challenge.com for details.
