F1 Fanatic - Formula Three
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.
