Mk2 ST did the Nürb in 8:35 minutes with 225 PS. What the hell happened here?

The magazine was complaining about how the ST dropped in power later on during their trackday due to weaker coolingand probably timed it in that state.
I don't understand why this time is up here, it's obviously not valid.
