    Thanks for posting sport.

    1:11:69 - how does that compare with subsequent lap times?

    Re: Video : Porsche 997 PDK - Top Gear Australia Mate!

    That was the first laptime for the whole show by the looks of it.

    Re: Video : Porsche 997 PDK - Top Gear Australia Mate!

    You're right... that was the first lap-time up on the board, but I thought there may have been more since.

    Not sure how often the show goes out...or even when it started?

    Re: Video : Porsche 997 PDK - Top Gear Australia Mate!

    They ran a few other cars that same day including a Nissan GTR R35 which ran 1.09.something... quite a bit faster from memory. This week they ran an AMG c63 black series... It did it in 1.10.41ish if I remember correctly... The Porsche currently sits forth of approx 10-12 lap times.

    Not as good as the UK show however

    Thanks for the info..

    The show will probably improve as you get to know the presenters better..

    BTW - interesting that they have a "Clarkson's Curve" on their track...can't get away from the man..

    No probs, the show has only been on for 3 weeks now...

    They laws are pretty tough here so they aren't able to open the cars up on the country roads etc as they do with your show.

    Also, its not the personalities of the presenters so much as the fact that they try so hard to be like the guys fron the uk show. Its staged, not natural as with clarkie and the hampster... They need to be themselves ...

    The UK guys are entertainers with car knowledge, our guys are car guys without entertainer qualities... doesn't work as well!!

    I'll record the show next Monday and post all the lap times if they show the whole board

    Re: Video : Porsche 997 PDK - Top Gear Australia Mate!

    how is the show doing over there ratings wise?

    Ratings for the UK version have supposedly been huge, the oz version not so great. The first episode had about 300k viewers tune in whereas clarkson gets an audience more than twice that here. It also got grilled by the viewers and media the day after the first episode.Haven't heard much since but I'll keep an eye out for figures. The first season in oz is expected to run for 8 episodes...

    Re: Video : Porsche 997 PDK - Top Gear Australia Mate!

    Re: Video : Porsche 997 PDK - Top Gear Australia Mate!

    I was looking at both Top Gear and Top Gear Australia lap time - GTR is such a great great car...

    Re: Video : Porsche 997 PDK - Top Gear Australia Mate!

    Thought I would update you on the latest Auz stig test...

    This week they did a story on the new GTR which had been imported privately. They decided to relate its time from the first episode to a Porsche... The GT2...

    The Porsche 997 GT2 - "1.06.92"

    The GTRs time a few weeks earlier was 1.09.46ish

    There was a suggestion that the GTRs time may have been adversely affected because the one they tested was speed limited. They were calling on Nissan to supply a none limited car. Frankly, the track is so small that I doubt they were doing speeds of 250+ kmh on the straights in any case...

    Make of it what you will...

    Regards

    Chris
