2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 track test

Testing a new car is always a grueling process. General Motors decided to ratchet things up a notch for the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, putting the car through an even more demanding test schedule than normal. Out on the Milford proving grounds, engineers pushed the Camaro ZL1 around the track for four hours per day over the course of six days.

These test sessions were divided into 40-minute segments, of which there were 36 sessions in total. That is a lot of track time for a new car, especially on a track that pushes vehicles to their limits. This is 24 hours of track work to see if and where something might go wrong.
