The official time was 7:01.3. Extremely impressive, but not the sub-seven minute lap that the team set out hoping to set. A new documentary, uploaded to YouTube today by FoxProFilms, gives you a front row seat to the days and events leading up to the lap.

I’m a GM guy by birth and a Corvette fan through and through, but you’ll never hear me say a bad word about the Viper. It pains me to see it go away, and the utmost respect to anyone and everyone showing it out in anger. My hat’s off to you.
