Got that backwards.

2007 - 1:10.64 2.0 Duratech on race tires with some suspension work.

2005 - 1:11.04 SVTF full race prep.

I know/knew both cars and drivers. SVTF was an endurance racing car and was not eligible for any TT points so was not driven flat out.

Based on my knowledge of these cars and some others that I have worked with I think that an SVTF with a little suspension work and some good tires should be able to run in the 1:08 range.

1:10 in a prepared SVTF with track tires? I have to think the potential is for much more, considering the last time I took a trophy at an EMRA event was in my (R.I.P) '99 Passat wagon 1.8T 5spd, with only Neuspeed sway bars, Performance Friction pads and a set of Kumho Victoracers. I was being conservative, with no alignment work and without doing much tire pressure adjusting, and my posted time was 1:10.770 (I had better laps during practice unfortunately). I would expect the 1:05-1:06 range to be possible without too much trouble in a well driven (that is, a better driver than me! I'm no veteran at this) SVTF on similar track tires...more power, lighter, better brakes than my old wagon.

I'm getting that old throttle pedal itch again...I have to get more use out of my helmet before the SA rating expires.

PS: No I'm not running Spec Focus...running nothing at the moment, just looking ahead to when I can budget the time and money again (sometimes have enough of one, not enough of the other).

I never ran the chicane...I don't have an LMP1 car for a weekend toy

Frankly I don't recall how much the chicane adds to a typical lap time, but I was there for one of the GTP's taking flight...YIKES!

I've only run it once and that was a LONG time ago.

Lap times were around the 2:20 - 2:40 mark, by estimate. I never put a clock on the car.

Our Grand Am Car was pulling 2:00 lap times and we were slow that day.
hahaha...were you pushing the car around to get times like that?

I think I saw an EMRA results page with a SVTF showing 1:05 or 1:06 range. I don't know if it was with track tires or other major changes. I've lapped Limerock in different cars from 1:06-1:10, all either modified street cars or borrowed (and conservatively driven!) showroom stock race cars. I haven't brought the Focus there yet...maybe this fall or next spring.
