Default Typical PCA lap times at SP?

What are the typical lap times in the different run groups (green, blue, white, black, red) for PCA HPDE's at Summit Point Main?

Hmmm, pretty sure it is not group-dependent. There are supercars in Green that can run in low/ mid-20s with brand new drivers that have no clue what they are doing.

It is not based on lap times, it is the driver's ability. If as a driver in a low horse power with good situational awareness is fine in upper groups. Run groups are based on driver, not the cars ability

Black in a 912 1:29 Red in a stripped out air cool 911 1:18 Day one Green in the same 912 many years earlier 1:56 YMMV The cars are overall much faster and the track is faster too.

Was in Black for years. Had a sore left arm some days from pointing over the roof but had fun too, just not on the straight parts. I picked up a book and propped my knee on the wheel for the straights.

But if you got passed by that 912, and tried to follow it around the track you'd learn a lot about driving! I had that experience when Kurt (an instructor) took it out in Blue when I was relatively new. Thanks, Kurt.

I'm spending the time between 10 and 1 trying to make my AIM Solo talk to my Camera... Don't worry - hands free, I have a holder for my cell phone while I'm on hold with tech support.

I recall forever ago - early 90's, there was a guy with a 914 at SP, and he had rigged up some kind of mannequin arm pointing over the roof. Couldn't take it on track (Pre-Lemons days), but it was kind of funny in the paddock.

In a stock 914, plenty of time to flip through your cassettes on the straights
