If you're referring to top gear america then this is what happened. They retrofitted a c7 z51 with all blue led's and then Tanner Foust ran a road course through a section of closed down streets in detroit (i think). This car had the PTM set to race. Then the car was retro fitted with red led's and ran the same lap with all control and traction systems off. The two videos were edited on top of eachother so you can actually see where the systems on the C7 kicked in a bit too much and then where they excelled. The whole point was to see if the systems could make a race car driver better than himself. I won't tell you which version won, the blue or the red, I'll let you guys wait for the video of that.

It was in the episode "America's biggest cars"

I'm sure the full episode will be up within the week.

Saw it last night on my iPad History Channel app. It was pretty cool, but I wonder how it would have ended up if an actual race car driver was doing it.
