    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:

    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.
