The Official FFR Top Dog Track Times Thread

This thread will be used to log the fastest lap times recorded by FFR drivers/owners on road courses around the world. Please copy the template below and paste into your post. Once posted, I will come back in here and update the second post in this thread with the summary info and a link to your post.

NOTE: We know the GTM has a significant aero advantage over the other models and it could dominate this thread. If you have a non-GTM car and you want to post your verified time, even if it's not faster than the GTM in the same track configuration, that's fine. It will be good to see what how other models are stacking up. But, in keeping with the rules I set forth, this is the Top Dog thread so I'll keep the main listing with fastest times regardless of model.

You must have some way of proving your lap time so a link to race results or a video of the lap are both acceptable. Other means of proof can be discussed.

Driver Name:
Factory Five Model: (Roadster, Challenge, Coupe, Spyder, GTM, 33, 818)
Engine Type: (Gas, Diesel, Electric)
Displacement:
Number of Cylinders:
Induction: (NA or Forced)
Fuel Delivery: (Carb or FI)
Tires: (DOT or Slicks)

Track Name:
Track Configuration:
Date of lap:
Lap Time:

Supporting documentation: (link to pdf, video, race results, etc)

Thanks, Marty. Hey, for now, you get to claim the Top Dog spot at CMP!

I wish this forum supported the full suite of BB code so I could make the listing into a properly formatted table.

Again, mods, can we make this a sticky?

Just so there's no misunderstanding for anyone else, these times are unclassified in the truest sense of the word. The fastest lap time at a track/configuration takes Top Dog honors no matter how the car is outfitted, as long as it is an FFR car and you didn't cut through the infield to make it happen!

Mark, Tell JG to post all his times. I figured he would have it done by now.

Keep in mind that the purpose of THIS thread is to track the fastest times achieved by ANY FFR car by track/configuration. There will be no further break down by car/series/motor/class/ptw ratio or any other classification. Slower times than those in post #2 are recorded here for posterity only.

Main listing post updated. Great job guys!

Trevor, 1 second is all you need to break that 2 minute barrier. Carry just a little more speed through a few of the important turns and I'll bet it falls. I want to see the vid!

The video disk was full the day before and I didn't realize. So, I have all the track data, but no video for the 2:01 run.
I will try in Oct. to break the 2 minute barrier. The car can easily do it. I just have to not botch any turns, brake late enough on both straights and stay in it thru uphill esses. I will turn my redline up too, I ran out of gear about half way on the back straight at 155@6800. My motor revs to 7200.

I honestly think the 2:00 minute barrier will fall this year, epecially with more FFR ST2 cars coming on line.
