Actually it wasn't that wet. It wasn't raining at the time and the sun was coming out. Conditions were similar to the LFA lap, which did a 1:22.8. But the M8 had AWD. wet times were supposed to be about 4s slower than in the dry. 10s difference could only have been possible if it were like using super aggressive semi slicks in the wet.

TG says that in heavy rain, Like the 8C was the difference would be 8s in a Rwd car.

From the video description: "the track was ludicrously greasy and track temps were low".

None at all, But that can still mean the track was damp, I dont watch TG anymore so i cant say, Just saying wat REAL TG has said.

Probably semi slics. Its bmw politics they give super dooper tuned cars to the tests and when weater isnt perfect their resoults are pathetic. But in perfect contition they make awesome times like every car on semi slics.
