C8 Corvette or Shelby GT500.. Which is BETTER at the Track?

Check out this video by Woman Driven on YouTube where she compares a C8 Corvette and a Shelby GT500 on the track at Exotics Racing in Las Vegas.

She mentions, the Chevy C8 Corvette and the Ford Shelby GT500 are two cars that I’ve been meaning to drive and test out. Driving the C8 and the GT500 on a road course, is likely the best way to get a feeling of the overall performance both of them have to offer. Let’s just say, one drove much better than the other.
