That Jag lap was with the pre 2008 iteration of the track with the concrete uphill chicane just at the crest of the uphill. None the less, a very quick lap. I believe in 2007 one of the RS Spyders did a lap in the 44's, and that was during a practice session. Qualifying was rained out that year. I think the new uphill chicane is slightly slower than the old uphill chicane, and with the slower cars, I think we'll see 47's or 48's from the LMP1 machines.
