Was at Spa this week and have now had chance to analyse some video and it looks like I was putting in lap times in the range of 2:57 to 3:05.

Anyone know how this compares with other road cars (can't find anything on Google)?

GT3's manage low 2:50's if I recall properly around 2:50- 2:54

that's pretty good for a 1st time...pretty good anyway in a road car i'd say.

lap records around 1m32s. Kimi F1 Fezza.

Can't even comprehend what 1m32s must feel like, must be absolutely epic.

i drive a CSL and first visit to Spa last year in the dry the best i managed was a 2m 56+, and my second visit was this year and stole a 2m 54 dead.

If you were driving the R8 in your profile a 2m 57 first visit is ok but i would think you should be aiming for 2m 50 or lower when you get on the money!

Cheers Shim. Yes I was in the R8.

Still need to build up my speed through Eau Rouge as I was doing quite a long lift and that then has a big impact down the straight.

Think I could also get on the power earlier through Stavelot and therefore carry more speed through Blanchimont and up to the Bus Stop.

first visit i did a 15 minute with instructor and it knocked 5 secs of my time just after lunch (just knwoing how brave i should be on the fast corners)

this time i picked up some more speed but never bettered my times on B2 and ER from the first visit

worth the £30 he was

www.tracknite.com is a great bit of software for video review.

In the GT2 I assume.

How much per lap do you think 888s are worth. I was running standard PZeros.

FWIW I was lapping in the 3 min to 3.05 mark in my road going GTD40 (Gulf colours with #9 on the car). It was also my first visit to Spa and I thought it was fantastic there. Here is a link to a video selection from my car.

The quality of driving by all participants I thought was very high compared to some UK track days helped by great marshalling with blue flags.

R888s are not quite as good as Pcups, but are considerably cheaper and longer lasting!

Obviously a lot depends on the type of car, lots of responses here with many different cars. Spa rewards a car with a lot of power, but that notwithstanding, my little 250bhp Juno was doing 2.32's on endurance tyres and brakes for the recent 3 hour race. Should probably have been 2.27's if we'd had different gearing and didn't get quite as much understeer. Easy flat in Eau Rouge and Blanchimont - unfortunately we then hit 140mph on Kemmel and just sat there!

My brother and I just drove Spa yesterday for the first time. We managed a consistant 3.06- 3.08 in a Lotus Exige 220.

Definitely could have gone faster but braked a lot for Rouge (down to 85mph) which then slowed us for Kemmel a fair bit.

Surprising thing for me was how hilly the track was.

Last week in the Megane I was running 3.05 - 3.06 with a predictive best of 3.01.

More power required for the next visit!

2:56's in a standard road cerbera 4.5. Although it was someone else's car so think it could go quicker. 2:32.7 in race cerbera but with only 380 bhp (normaly 100 more) so should be quite a bit quicker this year.
