Twas the long, set on Federal 595 Evos. The video is back in the thread somewhere. Time was 1:45.4xx as well, although recorded by GPS so might be a little bit of fudge factor in there :thumleft:

Sorry to burst your bubble Dan, but I found your lap, and it was on "Rockingham International Super Sports Car" not "Rockingham International Super Sports Car LONG". You can find the difference here: https://rockingham.co.uk/venue-informat ... it-layout/

Andy that is very quick , just a bit of food for thought , the time attack lap record ( it says on you tube so could be wrong ) was broke 2 weeks ago at just under 1 min 3 seconds in the old circuit , by my reckoning that’s about 3-4 seconds shorter than the new layout .....

1:09 is a great time. It would be competitive in Time Attack Club class.

For reference, the TA lap record for the old (National) circuit was set at 58.0 by Kevin Jones in his Noble Pro-Extreme car. The new circuit (Clubman circuit) was only run in the wet, and the best time was 1:04.5.

That'll do, now I need the rest ;)

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:
