The correct output is 200 hp and 1,250 lb-ft of torque, and the car weighs only 168 kg.

a legal race car - Formula Student - like F1 or LMP ;)

Only race vehicles allowed are F1 cars, LMP1 cars and MotoGP bikes, not GT3, touring cars or anything else.

I am sorry I haven't reflected that in ToS (which probably nobody reads anyway), I will add that in.

You got me - I didn't read them xD

Won't be more than this official record. I think it would be nice to have the comparison to "unrestricted" vehicles. Maybe add the fastest top fuel dragster too. Just to see whats the best achieved up till today. It would be enough to run these records just under the categorie of the car. If you add every F1 car for the next 5 year you end up with 100 F1 lap times on these tracks. A bit too much for my taste. Look at the Red Bull Ring. First road legal car on position 80 :)

It would be good to have something like top fuel dragster in the straight line rankings, just like it is interesting to have F1 cars there - just to give perspective and see how fast is the "ultimate fast". But... allowing arbitrary non-road legal and race cars would open up a can of worms - all kinds of barely definable race/modified cars would be added that would be difficult to keep track of. That's why the race cars that are allowed are very limited - only F1 cars, LMP1 and MotoGP. And just to give that perspective, since they also have lots of laptimes.

Funny car lap would be hardly funny unless you had a morbid sense of humor

The fastest cars that are at least slightly driveable do about 300 km/hr in the quarter around 8 seconds.

You know what's even funnier? Lapping a top fuel dragster around the Nordschleife and then lapping a Forumla 1 car around the Nordschleife.
