900 meters to be precise.

So if a car was travelling at 324kph at the very start of the straight to the very end of the straight without having to brake. How long would this take??

10secs.
May the Horse be with you....

And yet, before braking for turn in to turn 1, a 458 road car on road legal tyres can get to 300km/h, having got on full power well before the end of the last turn...

I don't see responding to bait as a weakness.

When people distort data to achieve their own incorrect answers, I'm happy to point them in the right direction.

I'm still wondering why, if a 458 does the same speed down the straight at PI as a fire breathing monster like an F40lm with 750hp, 1000kg,  it's lap time is so much slower.

It sounds like the 458 is such a superior car in every way that it should be lapping in the low 20
 
Can someone explain?

Ok, I'd still rather be considered easy to bait and weak, rather than wrong.

Aaron, and Pless are wrong. A 458 has done 300km/h.

Lap time is meaningless, due to slick tyres etc etc.

It's only top speed on the straight that's under doubt.

My only experience going fast at PI was being driven around by Luke Youlden in a new GTR.

He was going as fast as it would go and we hit 261 before he braked.

A 458 must be a lot faster to go 40kph more!
Why such a long face?
