You guys see the videos of the Mazdaspeed 3 (Mazda3 MPS) doing the ring in 8 minutes and 39.66 seconds.

Could someone refresh my memory?
On Top Gear, Jezza got a lap time of 9:59, then nearly go beaten by a GIRL in a VAN! (No offence, ladies;o)
What was HE driving?

hey guys, has anyone seen the rx8 or the rx7 in the lap time scoreboard of the Ring? I tried searching over the internet, but all the sites I found didn't mention our car in there... had some similar cars like the s2k but no rotary at all...
does anyone know what is the quickest lap recorded for the rx8 or the fd?

Let me know when you'll be here I usually go to the track once a month and will have either my 8 or Skyline out there on the track too.

just test drove a cayman s over the weekend... probably closest one IMO to the 8 as far as balance goes. very easy to drive and handles superb.

Id imagine the rx8 would be very weak on a track like nurburgring.

Long straights > rx8

The RX8 is great on that track and with 174 turns its not weak, and I've also got my car up to 235kmh and it wasn't on the main straight either

I got mine up to 222 KPH on a motorway in France - no traffic.
I saw a turn coming up.
I looked at my wife in the passenger seat.
I thought "If I hit that corner at this speed, she will almost definitely wake up, and I will be in SO much trouble".
I slowed down.:o(
