Randy mentioned that the tested car didn't come with the Carbon brakes, I guess it didn't come with the sport suspension either and that he drove it in automatic mode...
A very good laptime nonetheless, almost 2 seconds faster than what Schneider did last year.. but if the car had been better equipped and in manual... maybe another 1-2 could have been shaved...
