The C4 version of the Corvette ZR-1 was nicknamed “The King of the Hill” for good reason.

We spoke with Jan prior to the start of the 2010 12 Hours of Sebring and asked him about the incident and whether he has talked with Jorg Bergmeister since the incident. We also asked Jan about his running the Nurburgring in a Corvette ZR1 last fall and if he thought he could be Jim Mero’s 7:26.4 time.
