Yep, ballsy driving. Its amazing to see that even though cars like the 918/lafa/p1 have taken super cars to the next level, a fairly run of the mill super car like this one can lap the same time.

That is amazing! And on shitty Pirelli P1s!

I wonder who was driving...and I wonder what the F12GTO would do?!?! Not that we will ever find out.

They only had enough time to do exactly 1 lap to get that time and many people believe that with more trials, they could have done a better job... Lamborghini is happy with that, or should I say VW is happy with the time as more trial might possibly destroy 918/s lap time which might upset Porsche's customers which are also VW's.

Porsche has plenty of time up its sleeve between the record lap and the time the 918 is now capable of setting.

How do they measure a lap? I notice the Lambo stopwatch stopped before he reached the starting point (coming into the lefthander with the red and white Armco). Or did I miss something?

my lap timer works of gps and it remembers the exact point I was when i pressed the start button and uses that as the start of the lap.
For me at mallala it is about 50m past the start line.

The next session I go out I dont have to press the start button again as it remembers where i pressed it the first time.

So it does not matter where you start its relative to the track as it will balance out due to it being exactly 1 lap
