Some details:
Best circuit time 2:38
To compare: ITR (Integra TypeR) 2:30, Subaru Impreza WRX STI 2:20, all cars serial, with street tyres

Max speed: end of home straight: 170 kmh ~102mph
Min speed: corner combination 30mph
Average speed: n/a
Fuel consumption: ~20MPG :)

Driving details:
First right corner (brake 102mph to 51 mph, 4th-> 2th gear), before the second left corner 78mph, and brake (back 3th->2th gear), after full throttle. After the third right corner shift up to 4th gear and 92 mph. Before the fourth left corne little brake (66mph), after little gas. Before the big U-turn back to 2th gear (54mph) and full throttle in the corner. Shift up 3th and big brake before the corner combination and shift down 2th gear (30 mph). After the combination full gas, and some brake before the 8th left corner (~50 mph), and engine brake before the 9th right corner. After the corner shift up 3th gear and full gas in the 10th left corner (73 mph). Then again engine brake before the 11th right corner and full throttle up to ~80 mph. Big brake, and shifting down before the 12th right corner, speed down to 36mph, after full gast shift 3th gear (shortly time) and back to 2th gear before the 13th rigth corner (45mph). Full throttle and some engine brake before the last 14 U-turn (52 mph) and full gas, shift up 3th-4th gear (102mph).

Its amazing how many people you seemed to pass, is your car a standard 1.8? I was just wondering if the car is actually that quick against other makes or are you just that good a racer!

Well done, I don't expect the fuel consumption figure looks good after a run like that[smilie=cheeky-grin: Not bad for a standard road car (mild tuning accepted), I bet there were some surprised people out there.

Great video and driving, wouldn't worry about the high revving. Is there not a claim by Honda that they've never had a v tec failure!

Is that from the same person who claims only "a few" fog lights have broken and that there is no problem with dashboard scrateches?

No objetc the high-tech engine, how the min. revs was 4000rpm on the track. The continuous high engine loading, equal high fuel consumption. This is fact, "if to like if not". ;)
