I could be wrong but looks like Lars Ken driving was smoother compared to Kevin Estr ? Seems like Kevin made a few small mistakes on some sections but I could be wrong

What a beast! I bet it is putting down 470hp+ to the wheels if the .2 GT3ĺs are putting down 450hp. Porsche never seems to let us down.

Exactly what I was thinking... there was probably a sec or half in the car, from the mid-section and also from the curious gearing (he's hugging top of 5th in a few places when the power curve actually drops beyond 8k), but to be very fair that is already some ninja-level driving by Estre. I'd be lucky if I managed half of what he drove...

Cant wait!! One BIG question...why was redline set at 8800. I'm not kidding either! He ran it to 9k but it looks like redline was at 8.8!!! WTF....not again.

Insane

200 over Flugplatz, over 230 through SX, close to 270 in Fuchserohre, almost 200 minimum speed in Mutkurve... would be interesting to compare the data trace to a pro in 991 and 997 Cup, as I believe the minimum corner speeds are faster than would be achieved in the latter. Of course the Ring doesn’t punish a road car as much as a GP track would, but this is an incredible achievement from Porsche. Looks like they wanted t prove a point.

Wow! Incredible time, especially for a 520hp NA Street car.

In RCN the cup does 7.05ish - with 150 other cars on track.
You are not allowed to go faster on a lap than 7.05 in RCN.
I believe that the start and finish line is the same in RCN: so comparable LapTimer is faster than 7.05.
