I've done it in about a minute with 110BHP.






























































Admittedly I was 1200 feet up in the air at the time cool

Not driven it in the dry but can do an easy 2 minute lap in the wet 2 up in a mk1 MX-5.
Looks like late 1 minute 30's in the dry would be about right.

Showing the owner how much/little grip there was after a December monsoon... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YPWGQ7L5TWQ

Pushing harder and without the passenger, I think it would be 5-6 secs faster.

From memory I was doing about 1:46 in a 210bhp 1,180kg 924 Carrera GT. It's a couple of years ago and as you can see I'm not really pushing. Should be able to go quicker, but it's a starting reference. Late 1:30s sounds about right.

Averaging 96mph around the lap is impressive enough, but from a standing start is absolutely amazing yikes

Must be a serious contender for the outright (rolling) lap record, which stands at 1:18.954 (Andrew Smith, Lola T70)... bow

I went round in 1.34 in my 997 and felt quiet chuffed at that - I was going for it but only at about 8/10th's!

997 C2S around Goodwood

Not sure what 200hp would do, but in the right hands and the right car probably as quick?

Apparently so, 216 bhp (in a 50 year old 950kg) Alfa will do it.

There's some in car video on YouTube at alfaholicstv taken in the company Giulia saloon from Goodwood at the octane track day. I timed one lap at about 1.34.

Not me driving I hasten to add...

I think my best was 1:35 from a standing start in an M3 CSL on standard road tyres (PS2's) so as a lap time somewhere around 1:30?

Anything under 90sec from a standing start is pretty good, my best is 87secs. I think 90 sec on a full lap would be about right as well.

1:30's and you are going very well, get into the 1:20's and you are up there with the best.

Starting from the pitlane: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n4VeG4TMJZw
Starting from the finish line: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T7_hisLM9Ig

Car is geared to a max 130mph so I'm spending quite a lot of time on the limiter in 6th. Last year I dipped into the 87s but I don't seem to have the video on my YouTube channel.

1 min 25.7 seconds.

Two up in a Skyline R33 GTR Nissan with circa 700bhp.

Hitting 152mph.

Not my car or me driving but from the passenger seat I crapped myself!

Amazing.. The driver does a lot of sprinting there and knows the track really well, it's blooming scary going round that stupidly fast right at 120 + slightly sideways!

Here it is :
