I suppose since we have Nordschleife time for MR version, we also could add Hockenheim GP laptime for it:

Considering the very old gt2rs did 1:49.5 and the old gt3rs did 1:50.78, there must have been a lot of time left on the table

first time to my memory that a german magazine "allows" a non-arian competitor to beat a german car head to head. Here mclaren must have done its due diligence "imposing" the two cars used similar performance tyres and i suppose same number of lap attempts/track conditions. They must have strictly supervised AMuS's test procedures. Everything perfectly legal, of course, unless it is ferrari doing it.

997 gt2rs time shows how stupid and ignorant are those people pretending of strictly comparing times taken years apart and by different drivers.

first time beaten by 720s. Not really a spectacular time... This time makes the other records look a bit more suspicious...

This laptime makes the 997 GT2 RS' laptime by AutoBild Sportscars even more fantastic! Only 0.4 sec slower on older PS Cup tyres!

100 less horsepower, less torque, less mechanical grip, less aero grip, worse brakes, more technology and only 0.4 seconds slower? Something is very wrong with this time. Almost as if someone strapped slicks to the 997.

Or that there was little effort put in for the new time...
