    Default Corvette Z06 in 2008 Macau GT - Asia Supercar Challenge

    Although the GT race is dominated by the front running factory teams, its interesting to see individual team driving Corvette Z06 in macau.

    Maybe Oli should bring your Vette to race in Macau GT next year?

    I would need a little wider track. Sheesh, you need rubber bumpers on the side of the car to stay off the walls.

    That makes Long Beach look like a 4 lane highway.

    Good lord that looks like fun. I don't know what sounds better, the Ferrari's or the Vette's...

    I love how the C6R's exhibit this sense of effortlessness in their pace.

    I don't get street track like this and Monaco. There's hardly any room for passing and tons of blind corners. Pretty dangerous I think.

    Courses like that are for distinguishing the true talent and the also ran.

    In Macau, you only get to drive it once a year max, a 30 min practice session, then qualify, and race. Many can go fast in a track that he runs 200+ times, but in temporary street courses like that with limited seat time, only true talent will shine. Most winners of Macau are first timer to that track.

    Especially in Macau, theres no run offs, so drivers who can predict and drive on the true limit of the car and the corners without stuffing the wall will have a greater chance to win. Thats why most of the winner in Macau Grand Prix can proceed to Formula 1.

    Monaco is a bit different, a lot wider, and is capable of holding F1 events. Whereas Macau is way too dangerous for F1.

    ^^^let's say if u got the lead by luck and a faster driver behind u can't pass cuz there's isn't any room to pass safely, then do u still consider that talent if u win?
