Two Australian GT-R’s have been battling for the track record at Eastern Creek International Raceway (home of the 2010 World Time Attack Challenge). Both running Aeromotions R2 Wings, Duncan Forrest and Marek Tomaszewski posted blistering fast lap times that were untouchable by other cars.
Back in February, the class 4D lap record at Eastern Creek was 1 min 42.41 sec. The old record had stood since 2005. In March Duncan said “As ever though, i had to find a way to up the ante for the 2010 season. That’s where the Aeromotions R2 wing comes in”. Duncan then added an Aeromotions R2 Dynamic Wing to his car and in March Duncan broke the 5 year old record at Eastern Creek by a massive 1.3 seconds, posting a lap time of 1 min 41.087 seconds.
On 16 May the series again visited Eastern Creek with Duncan bettering his March time by a further .89 sec, posting a 1:40.195. Marek posted a 1:42.80.
Today (8 August 2010) the R35′s visited Eastern Creek again for the latest round of the NSW Supersprint Series. Duncan posted a great time of 1:38.93 in the charcoal R35 (beating his 16 May time by 1.257 second). Not to be outdone, on his 6th timed lap of the day, Marek in the white R35 posted a lap of 1 minute 38.8263 seconds, bettering Duncan’s laptime set in May by 1.369 seconds to beat Duncan’s best time today by 0.1113 of a second.
To put this in perspective, Marek’s lap time today is a massive 3.59 seconds under the old February 4D Lap record that had stood since 2005, and 2.26 seconds under the record that Duncan set in March. Keep up the good work guys!
