Ferrari F2003 @ Road Atlanta

Not sure where to put this... Armchair didn't seem right and neither did the historics forum, so if this is wrong, mods do your worst! Y'all need to see this, though.

Yesterday Marc Gene did the fastest lap ever around Road Atlanta with a 1:01.2 in a F2003. The previous lap record was a 1:06.2 by Stéphane Sarrazin in a 908 shortly after the track was repaved. Mind bending. Enjoy!

I'm really sad that I wasn't at Sebring this week but seeing this in person (and seeing my drinking buddies) was a nice consolation prize.

Even though the numbers were light, I starting giggling at the gate seeing / hearing them come down the hill to T12 and didn't stop until hours after I left. Unbelievable stuff!

It also sounds as though Marc was short shifting, so that wasn't possibly the best that could be achieved.

I'm certain that he could have gone faster. Current LMP1s are 5 seconds quicker around Spa than Stéphane's Peugeot so it's safe to say that the TS050 could do a 1:04, maybe a 1:03. A V10 Formula 1 car only two or three seconds faster than a prototype, particularly around a track as fast as Road Atlanta? Not likely.
However...that lap was plenty fast enough for me.

I mean, an f1 car may be capable of going under 1:01, but..... How???? That looked like a video game on fast forward. He sounded pretty flat through turn 12, and much faster going into it, by getting up the hill skool much faster after 10a and b. Or at least that's what it looked like. That was amazing.

He just cracks the throttle, takes a gear, into turn one. If what I have seen from radar guns tracking prototypes in T1 is correct, he is doing in access of 165 mph there.
