INDICATIVE RX-8 circuit laptimes

Post by bc-49 »

Managed a 1:26 and a bit around Anglesey Coastal.

I believe that's the best time we have so far for a 231 with full weight/no aero? Plenty more time to find, was turning in too early to Rocket Out for sure.

231, full weight (with a passenger), standard engine, RB high flow cat & catback, Nankang NS-2R tyres. Rest in my sig.

Video here when it's done processing:

Hi Bill, nice weather you had there 8)

Yep, that classes as a 1m27s under the rounding up rule, so close to the 1m26s listed for Anglesey (Coastal) with a std weight 231 (albeit an R3) and semi-slicks. Without the passenger you might have gone a second or two quicker ;)

Is there a reason why Lydden Hill isn't on here?

No reason at all Brad, just no-one has posted a time yet. Do you have a record of any times there, before your "incident"? :(

Thanks Malcolm, we really lucked out with the weather!

Won’t take a passenger next time ;)

I most certainly do...
I actually set my fastest lap time in the session before the "final session of the day"... For me anyway...

Wait, does that mean my 1m16.2 ( round up to 1m17s) at Silverstone National mean I set a good laptime? That can't be right...

Cracking day at thruxton
Shaved half a second off
So down a second on count
Video evidence below , me and Mr Boosted in his MX5

There’s a few more on my you tube , feel free to have a look
Didn’t realise I was hitting 120
Through church and over 100mph through village
Felt a bit frightened after ImageImageImageImage

Full cage / race spec now so probably slightly heavier as there’s a lot of bars
Standard engine - BGW and
front splitter
The diet stated last night
4 lbs just by taking the rear seat belt clusters out
Door bars next. Image
