We’re not sure what sparked the fire that caused this torch red C5 Z06 to burn to the ground, and the original poster didn’t say, but judging by the way the flames are dancing along the ground, it definitely looks fuel related. A lot of money went into this car for the opportunity to play in the 1000 hp club and in just a few minutes it was all gone.

When GM returned to the Nurburgring to validate the 2012 Corvettes, the ZR1 wasn’t the only car driven by test driver Jim Mero. Mero also drove a black 2012 Corvette Z06, outfitted with the Z07 chassis package, and posted a lap time of 7:22.68. The new lap time for the Z06 is just 3 seconds off the record-setting 7:19.63 time Mero recently recorded in the ZR1 while besting the previous Z06 record at the Nurburgring by nearly 20 seconds.

This custom Corvette ZR1 was surprising docile sounding under normal throttle, but once the traffic cleared in front of him, his foot hit the floor and we heard the monstrous LS9 open up in all it’s glory. The Corvette was so loud, it shocked those around it including the guy who was filming.

[VIDEO] GM Returns to the Nurburgring with the 2012 Corvette ZR1

Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter said at the Corvette Museum’s C5/C6 Bash in April that they would be looking to make a trip to the famous 12.9 mile Nordschleife for final validation of the supercharged C6 ZR1. We just didn’t realize it would be so soon! Judging from the new official video from Chevrolet showing test driver Jim Mero piloting the 638-hp Corvette to a time of 7:19.63, an 6 second improvement over the famous high speed run in July 2008, I would have to say that final validation was most definitely a success.

2011 Le Mans: Onboard Video from the #73 Corvette C6.R

Here is some onboard footage from the #73 Corvette C6.R at today’s free practice session. The Corvettes ran well and Magnussen even moved the C6.R into P1 for a few minutes. A somewhat scary moment occurred when the #74 Corvette was reported to be on fire. It turned out to be a minor power steering issue and the team was able to get right back out on track.

During the two hour qualifying session, the GTE PRO standings had the #56 BMW on the provisional pole at 3:58.426. Ferrari and BMW were 2nd and 3rd while the #74 Corvette finished 4th at 3:59.519 and the #73 Corvette was 5th at 3:59.633.
