    How can these times fall so behind Von Saurma's

    He did 7.50 in a Carrera S.  Is he he so much better driver?

    How can these times fall so behind Von Saurma's


    I haven't read the article but there seem to be three factors:

    (1) AB Sportscars may measure a full lap (20.8 km vs. 20.6 km Sportauto lap) - difference probably is good for a gap of 4-5 seconds

    (2) CarreraS was on Sport Tires, TurboS Cab not......guesstimate: another 7 seconds

    (3) Weather: if AB Sportscars would have done the test only recently the very hot weather wouldn't have helped to get the maximum power out of the Turbo....

    (4) Driver: not sure who drove the cars (maybe someone else who read the article can add the info).

    Good points from a NBR "Kenner".

    There's nothing wrong with these times IMO. HvS did 7.44 min with the lighter R8 V10 R-tronic on 20,6 km, the Spyder was only 6 seconds slower on 200 metres longer track. That's pretty impressive. Von Saurma's fastest time with the 997.1 Turbo was 7.52 min (re-run after Supertest's 7.54 min), this Turbo S Cab was 4 seconds faster. On 20,8 km.

    We can cut 5 seconds from these times for the 20,6 km-times easily, so:

    7.43 min - Turbo S Cabriolet

    7.45 min - R8 Spyder

    After reading these times, I appreciate more for the 7:50 time of CSL back in 2003

    Even on Cup tires that car was on par with 997.2 Carrera S on cup tires and faster than its main rival 996.2 GT3.

     Not a bad showing for the R8 considering how much slower it is in acceleration.

    Re: AutoBild Sportscars - Audi R8 V10 Spyder vs. Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabriolet

     How did the R8 go faster in section 6, yet go slower in section 5? By the looks of it, section 6 is a very high speed straight in which the 911 should dominate it, and section 5 looks like more curves where I expect the R8 to out handle it and not lose much ground due to acceleration.
