^ Haha the last two times I went to WSIR (both open test days), I haven't come across a single car on track. It's been quite the experience.
Thanks though. No secret really, just watched a lot of video (my own, Jack's, and others), drive the track like a true momentum car, and try to be smooth while being on throttle as much as possible. I spent a day there in a 100 hp Spec RX-7 (first gen), so I think that helped out a lot.

Fastest Limited/Mod Class Evo in Time Attack at WSIR
2nd Fastest Limited/Mod Class Evo in Time Attack at BRP 13CW
I would guess that GPS-generated speed is probably less reliable than we all imagine -- but not by a lot. He's MUCH faster than me at several points on the track, but slower at the slow points in 2, 3, 4 and 5.
It's definitely a very different lap than mine, but with a similar lap time. Seems like if I can hold more speed in 2 than him, I ought to be able to do the same thing in 9. (But of course, that might kill me.)
In any case, it's a very impressive lap.
