As per first post Wayne, I'll need:

DATE of laptime
ENGINE: (231/192) + Standard, Ported, Turbo/Ch or Super/Ch
CAR: Standard or (seriously) stripped out car
TYRES: Road, Semi-Slick or Full Slick tyres (Tyre make and model would be good too)

And it'll be a 1m26s in the rounding up rules ;) :lol:

Good time though :thumleft:
Date , this will be a spoiler , 31st October 2018
15.33 , sunny and freezing
Standard engine
Stripped car with half cage so about 30kg weight saving

Here’s my best time at Donnington really pleased with this time as I know I lost a few seconds on the start finish straight as I had to short shift and back off as I passed the sound microphone. Otherwise I’d be knocking at Wayne’s times ImageImage

I had a 1.25.11 in donington this week on the national circuit
Now added to the list Wayne, rounded up to 1m26s as I do with all times ;)

I was speaking to Ranjan yesterday about the AR-1's and he rated them highly. Seems like they are working for you too, as that's a great time around Donny =D>

1m20.7 is a great time Wayne =D> - remember we round UP all times , so you need to gain over a second to claim a 1m19 :D

Did anybody notice there was not mention of "no timing devices" at JDM Combe last weekend? I guess they know everybody's running Harry's and I clearly had it on display in my car, which went without comment from the Marshals.

Noticed that my fastest recorded lap at Croft, a 1:45.80 is an improvement on the time currently listed for a standard 231 with a decat on Feds
