I'm anxious to see if I'll enjoy focusing on the other aspects of track driving. I do think I'll miss hill/toe downshifts though, but those have been gone since C7 vettes and 6th gen camaros I believe (can you turn the rev matching off?).
Rev match is not permanently turned on in manual c7s and 6th gens. In fact you have to turn it on, the default setting when you turn the car on is rev match off.

When lap times are this close it will be the driver that rules the day regardless of transmission.

same driver, different year. He drove the M6 car much better IMHO in more advantageous atmospheric conditions and ended up with a slower time vs the A10. Seems like the answer is clear about the ZLE A10.

True, amongst many many other conditions etc. Point being nearly all of us here is not a pro driver and it almost always comes down to the driver and not the machine etc. Especially if said machines are so close in capability.

Well yah, this should surprise no one. Adding on to my post above it will be especially easier for the average/intermediate driver to go faster in an auto than a MT generally speaking.

The A10 allows you to focus on going faster and braking, and that makes anyone (at any level) a faster driver. Not sure why all the push back here! The car is crazy responsive, shifts into the right gear much faster than anyone could - both on acceleration and deceleration, and gets you ready to jump out of corners. Most of us with a A10 ZLE don't even consider the paddle shifters.
