1:55 in a stock E36 M3, could probably take off 10 seconds if I had R-compounds and race pads.

Don't forget my 1:43.443 in a J-stock E30 M3. 160 RWHP and 3000 pounds!

Hankook Z214's kick ass on Lagunas nice smooth surface.

I was pretty impressed with your 2:01.5 on the big configuration at Buttonwillow, but this time at LS is great as well. Keep in mind, Ralph's time (equivalent to the best Grand Am Cup GS cars) was done with a malfunctioning SMG transmission that allowed him to shift on 2-3 times per lap. (maybe he can break 1:40 in April).

The Champ Car World Series and Champ Car Atlantic Championship return to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca for a “Spring Training” event March 7 – 10. The Atlantic Championship will test on Wednesday and Thursday, March 7 and 8, with the Champ Car World Series testing on Friday and Saturday, March 9 and 10.

Saturday, March 10 will be the official Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca “Open House” to wave the green flag on the 50th Anniversary Season at the world-famous circuit. Admission to the facility and paddock during the open house is free, with Champ Car and Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca fans to experience autograph sessions, fan forums, and exhibits featuring activities from around Monterey County including car displays, wine tasting, and a tribute to 1957. The day will conclude with a sock hop in the Red Bull Energy Center.

Those wishing to see the Atlantic or the Friday Champ Car session will be able to enter Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca viewing areas for free. A $5 fee will be charged at the gate for admission into the paddock.

The test session is open to all Champ Car and Atlantic teams and will provide fans with one of the few opportunities to see the new DP01 Champ Car chassis prior to the series’ first race of the season in the streets of Las Vegas.

Official record still belongs to Castroneves.



Lap records

On August 20, 2006, Toyota F1 test driver Ricardo Zonta set an unofficial lap record of 1'06.039.[6] The previous record time was 1'07.722, set by Helio Castroneves in a Penske Champ Car during qualifying for the 2000 CART Honda Grand Prix of Monterey. The unofficial record was re-taken by a Champ Car on March 10, 2007 by Sébastien Bourdais, who lapped in 1'05.880 during Champ Car Spring Training. The unofficial record was again re-taken by a Formula One car on on May 19, 2012 by Marc Gené, who lapped in 1'05.786 in a Ferrari F2003-GA during the 2012 Ferrari Racing Days.[7]

Officially, Castroneves is still the recordholder as the times of Zonta, Bourdais and Gené were set during exhibition and testing sessions, and official records can only be set in race conditions (either in practice, qualifying, or during a race).
