Top Gear
« on: November 11, 2012, 03:42:16 PM »
What about making a car ranklist, like they do in 'Top Gear' show? What we need is a simple track (Default?) and a mysterious driver (like The Stig). Of course it would not be an RH test (but having... hmmm... let's say 5 noRH laps and pick the best result from it for the car's list).

To be more precise: first laps were already completed, the (YouTube) show will be on Sunday.

Stig was quite diligent this week, so we can compare some almost equal cars in the next show (weekend). ;)

Is the P962 really faster than the Jaguar XJR? Check it out!

Stig built up two very different laps with these cars: he pushed harder in the first half of the track in P962, while the second half was undoubtly the Jaguar's territory.

Maybe he was running out of track time by the end of the P962 lap. Anyway, interesting to see!
But we can't be quite sure.

It's also worth to mention the distribution of corner directions - too bad Alain isn't here to talk about it.

Based on the former discussions with several pipsqueaks, I can list about 5 people performing a lot better in left corners than in right. One of them is Alain.

I wonder if it has something with the number of hands used for steering.

Btw have you ever thought on giving names to the Default corners? There's only 6 on the classic line (+a chicane).
