yeah i reckon ive got a easy 5 seconds, the rest will need to be me improving more than the car. i don't expect to get anywhere near 1:19 though.

and the laps that i where 'following' you. you where pulling away from me slowly, so you where better than those times :D

i do know i started a overtake with you coming up behind me (and you caught me WAY quicker than i was expecting or i wouldn't have started!) and you did have to slow down before passing me. but if that's not the 'moment' you're on about, then no worries :D

There was a few off them thats fine get off the throttle follow through...i appreciate that 1 rx8 wants to overtake another and i have a distinct advantage with 120bhp more so we have fun, this was slam brakes on...wtf moment lol. I asked to go from the back so part n parcel of it...lol wish i hadnt said anything now lol...

I went from the back so I could pick off the cars in front without worrying about cars coming up behind me, so I could push for a decent time.
Did work as it was as quick (slow) as my track car

I can’t get below 1:27 no matter how hard I try..! Street tyres so there’s more time to come from a semi-slick set of boots for sure.
