Default Ford GT ran a 2:38 at VIR grand new lap record.

Not only is that car sex on wheels, it’s also FAST!

I’m not 100% sure, but I believe it was Billy Johnson that did it.

Billy, if it was you, CONGRATS! Awesome stuff.

The C&D lap time is FIVE seconds slower. Lol @ calling anything lightning lap with journalists setting times.

I love the new Ford GT so much... just wish it was closer to the same price as the prev gen. It just looks so much better than the prev gen too!

This car is so awesome. It takes something truly special to stand out in a field of amazing exotics and supercars (which we're presently awash in) and the Ford does precisely that. I haven't felt so patriotic since that time the Mighty Ducks won the gold for Team USA. :-)

Any confirmation outside of a forum post?

EDIT: It's also on the driver's IG. Congrats Ford!

What would you know about fast laps! Haha.

I was down at VIR for the first time over the fall. Since I had a good feel for the track since running grand, I watched the Lighting lap with the Gt and said to myself, that driver is leaving 4-6 seconds on the track, that car can go way faster. A day later you post up your time.

Did you happen to give any advice to the C&D drivers? Was it on the same day you and C&D went out.

Lastly, Do you still love your Viper after having some time with that sexy beast of a Ford GT?
