hmm... So at first I thought something about this doesn't look quite right. When comparing with the GT2RS MR, some of the corners in the 2nd sector the GT3RS is taking it 15+kph faster. Resulting in a total lap time only down by 2 seconds.

So i suspected, was it that the gt3rs was running on slicks? But then upon looking at the Senna lap and the Huayra lap, the GT3RS corner speeds were actually slightly slower in the same corners.

Like the corner just before the back straight, the corner speeds were
GT3RS: 153kph
Senna: 152kph
Huayra BC: 160kph
GT2RS MR: 137kph

So either the MR was not even close to a full effort, or the MR package really wasn't set up properly =/
