Group for discussing all kinds of Formula Three racing including the F3 Euroseries, British F3, the Macau Grand Prix and more.
Mount Panorama in Bathurst is synonymous with the Aussie V8 supercar 1000km race.
But the lap record at the track has fallen to a single-seater driver: Chris Gilmour, driving in the first Formula Three race at the track.
Here’s an onboard view of Gilmour’s 2’04.6187 tour up and down the mountain:
More details here:
Was this the first time ever there was an open wheeler race at the mountain?
I also wonder how fast an F1 would be if they really push it. I reckon something about 1:34-1:37.
Jenson did it in 1.48 in a 2008 McLaren last year but was clearly not going at 100% of what he could have been.
Yeah, he was almost cruising and I don’t believe that time anyways, it just happens to be 1:48.88, in an event with team ’888′…
I can manage 1:36.5 with an MP4/20 with keyboard in rFactor and I’m hardly a talented driver.
That was pretty epic across the top of the mountain. He kept his foot in for a long time there.
I like this onboard better.
