The 996 cup lap time was also set in 2005, before Thunder-hill re-pavement which net shaving off 1.5 seconds a lap and the 996 cup i'm referring too had a soft limiter in place at 7,900rpm for the 25 hour thunder-hill race, IIRC, tire technology has improved, etc., my friend owns the car, hence i know all the details.
Awesome time nevertheless. !

I'll be all over that car if I'm fortunate enough to get the opportunity! That car is going to rip the track up and I think once we see it in a more appropriate color it will change a lot of opinions. A lot of people hated the 720 when it was first revealed - now its the beauty queen.

Agreed. It looks like a 720s had sex with a riced out civic and had a baby.

The Marlboro livery is awesome.

IMO the 720 is a very ugly car also - itĺs no beauty queen.

It’s just awful. What were they thinking? Does trying to seek an extreme laptime in a roadcar justify no thought at all as to aesthetics? It’s still a roadcar. It does need to look good. And this just doesn’t, at all. Marlboro livery is the best, but only because it really disturbs the lines of the car.

And no, the 720 is no beauty queen. It has a mess of a front, and the bubble cockpit (a la Ford probe) is not a fine feature. It has an exquisite side profile but average rear and terrible barge boards leading up to the front arches.

I don't care much about aesthetics, but the problem is that this car isn't just not attractive, it's actually unattractive.

@CJ
congrats on the BAC Mono franchise expansion. I've always really liked that car. I hope some of the early customer support/warranty issues have been hashed out.
