Hi all. Stole this idea from Miata.net but figured it would be great to have a thread to centralize lap times for the track junkies on this forum. (I want to know just how slow I am).

Track name:
Track location:
Lap time:
Year/model:
Estimated total vehicle weight with driver:
Estimated wheel horsepower:
Fuel:
Tire size and model:
Estimated ambient temperature:
Notes on setup (turbo, suspension setup, rain, frightened, etc.):

No drag or auto-x times.

The key to making this work is having some individual maintain a summary list sorted by track name in the first post of a “Sticky” thread. Otherwise it will simply turn in to a lengthy thread that nobody wants to wade through to find times for a particular track. Times must be backed up with video evidence to be counted. A good example can be found on the Camaro6 forum, which I won’t link to avoid being reprimanded......

I agree video or transponder data would be nice. Once there is enough data points we can put together an Excel/Google Drive spreadsheet similar to what the 1/4 mile thread has. I’d be willing to put that together and maintain it, I’m interested to see how we all stack up.

Is there no way to search within the thread? You are totally right about wading through pages trying to find a specific track. I guess a forum search would get the job done but is less clean? I'm definitely down for having everything consolidated in an excel doc as well if that is easier. @Will_ thanks for volunteering 🍻

Video is definitely preferred, but I don't think it should be required. I'd rather have more times posted than less. In all reality, if someone is posting fake times on this thread to try and impress a bunch of strangers, they need to do a life rethink...

Edit: @Will_ , once you have a link to the drive doc, send it over and I will add it to the first post.

I love this! I brought it up in another thread (the stupid question one?) but I didn't have any times to start a thread with. Good to see one of the real track guys start it. 😎

I'm a track newbie, especially compared to a lot of the guys on here, but quickly becoming addicted. Hope to see you post up some times once you have a chance to get out there.
