17 5000 laptimes

Cover for 5000 laptimes

Congratulations, fastestlaps.com visitor, we have made it to 5000th laptime!

It took almost 4 years to get this far, but it seems to me, that with your continued collaboration, it won't take another 4 to get to 10000!

Special thanks to our biggest contributors - Georg, Wads, Heyhuub, Bezza, gt,phavyarden and others. Without you, guys, this would never happen. It's such a cliche to say this, but it's so true!

It appears to me that during these last couple years, car buyers, car makers and car journalists - all have become more aware of the ultimate handling, acceleration and braking benchmark that laptime is. And I expect even more awareness and lots more laptimes from new and well known sources in years to come!

Thank you FastestLaps for providing the one site I probably couldn\'t live without and is far better than all the major publications and dare I say porn!
I only hope you grow to integrate all the best features of other car sites and social networks for our own profiles. Next up Fatestlaps regional meets?

http://www.fastestlaps.com/tests/2bhgmo1rbtk5 But "n-th laptime" is a fuzzy concept since we delete many submissions and what was n-th can become n-1-st etc. And there's a portion of laptimes in those 5000 that are to be deleted sooner or later, so you could argue that we haven't reach 5000 yet. But none of it matters, the point is - we have a lot of laptimes, more than I could ever hope for 4 years ago. And that's the milestone we are celebrating.

i was gonna say wich laptime made you wanna celebrate 5k at first :D

anyways even when its not really 5000k yet we will reach it soon and looking here is a good start..
