    Nurburgring lap time GT2

    Nurburgring is the benchmark for rating fast cars now. Even kids talk about how fast that car compare to another. 
     
    where to find the official record number and what is the proof that its correct?
     
    for example, GT2 RS done lap in 7:18:00 but nobody is believing this number because there is no official video of the race. And I know the video doesn't make any difference but nowadays people prefer videos.  
     
    Let me get to the point. 
     
    GT2 RS 7:18:00 
     
    ZR1 7:19:63
     
     
    how good is this source ? And is it possible for car companies to cheat? For example to use a race suspensions set up or special wheels that is not originally sold with the car?

    Then you may call me "nobody" Smiley  If I recall correctly HvS from Sportauto missed the laptime by 6 sec or so  - the factory drivers are a bit faster of course.....GT2 RS is a monster at the NoS (though I'm sure there are only a handful of drivers capable of exploiting the full potential of this car on this demanding track). I have no doubt that this car can lap the Ring about 30 sec faster than my good old 997.1 GT3.

    Re: Nurburgring lap time GT2

    but you didn't get my question , is there a commitee at the ring that can check cars before they get in so they don't cheat by adding special tires or anything that is not fitted on production cars? im talking about GT2 RS , ZR1, GTR, LFA, ACR.


    Re: Nurburgring lap time GT2

    I don't think so - nor would probably some companies allow it for obvious reasons - some of the times I would bet are not made with the stuff you buy off the shelf - hence those numbers are more Marketing. SA is more realistic


    Re: Nurburgring lap time GT2

    If you want to be sure that everything is off the shelf on the car and you want to get lap times always driven by the same driver, only trust the Sport Auto times. They have limited runs with the car and furthermore check suspension setting and power output (if their dyno is able to).

    Nowadays almost every record lap is driven by a works driver who was able to drive around the track for at least half a day before he starts the hot lap.
