I think I've updated the listing in the first post with everyone's latest inputs?

If I've missed anyone's claim to a faster time, or new circuit time, re-post here as a reminder ;)

Was just having a look at the list and realised that I've beaten the Croft time for a standard car on semi slicks. Will see if I can find the data file but have video proof at least:

I've also matched the Mallory time and only 1s off at Blyton. On other tracks like Combe and Snetterton I'm miles off.

@John - thanks, updated :thumleft:

@Alan - well done, updated with your lap time for Croft. That's a great time for a std RX-8 on semi's =D> . The previous 1m48s was my lap time from 2014. I've only been back there once since, but it was raining, so no chance to improve on time. Might have to go back there now you've raised the bar ;) :lol:
