    Great vid!

    Love the multiple camera angles, lap timer, and track map. Someone should design an easy-to-use software video editing (shareware) program so TrackHQ members can create cool videos like that too!

    Yeah the Ultima GTR is very very fast. But also if you remember Top Gears test of the fugly Gumpert Apollo, it ran the track in a 1:17.1 which still beats out the Caterham. But seriously the Caterham is still up there with the big dogs for quite a bit less money. I cant remember the episode off hand but check out the season 12 episode 4 of the Pagani Zonda F and you can see the gumperts time. The Ascari A10 also beats it out by a minuscule .1 sec.

    Anyone know the engine specs on the Caterham in the first vid? I'd assume it has some sort of FI ontop of something like a 2.3 Duratec Cosworth beast of an engine.
