8:05 on the full lap back in 1987 is insanely impressive.

If Mr sideways had not drifted yellowbird through the corners I believe he could have busted into the 7 minute mark

That car is so happy to fish tail and spin out. I'm amazed he was able to keep the car under control over all the bumps and corners at all.
