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

It wasnt you...i know who it was...im just putting it out there that it was rather dangerous...we all need to look out for and respect each other on track and play nice together. Lol.

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.
