Ring Record Time

12/12/2016 9:27 AM

the Porsche 918 still holds the quickest lap in it's class but the AMG just claimed the record for rear wheel drive. the driver barely looks likes he's working hard to pilot this rocket around the 12+ mile course hitting over 190 MPH

I'd like to see the metric where they take the elapsed time for one circuit and divide that by the price of the car.

Or handicap the cars by having them carry extra weight, like they do with horses, so that the net weight divided by the horsepower = constant.

Interesting factoid: Rudolph Hess edited Hilter's 'Mein Kampf', thus Hess was literally the world's first grammar Nazi.
