I realize you try to establish a baseline from the car, but the track is different, weather/temps differ, etc.
On the flip side, no substitute for seat time.
Also, I don't time laps because the high numbers make me sad.
Agreed, there are many variables but despite this there is a linear rate of progression across 2 tracks. I've taken Ross Bentley's advice and picked up ApexPro as a learning tool. In another post I explain how the data is easily imported to Track Attack but there are few people sharing lap times for me to compare data from faster drivers especially those with the same set-up as my car. Anyway, I thought it was an interesting observation and maybe someone might be inclined to do the same.
