was it wet when the leon went round?
It was actually .61 seconds: http://fifthgear.five.tv/jsp/5gmain.jsp?lnk=401&featureid=89&pageid=180&show=s8e4§ion=Shootout
It would be incredibly interesting to see Tiff and VBH go head-to-head. She always looks like quite a 'sloppy' driver when you see in car footage, just one hand on the steering wheel etc...
I did like just how sideways Tiff got the ST!
True, I think VBH looks sloppy behind the wheel too. I know people can quote how successful she's been but she just doesn't look a patch on Tiff round a track. Yes, she can hold powerslides and show off, but when shes doing her "quick" laps, it just doesn't look anywhere near as "quick" as the car can go.
depends on track,
If you look in Car and track car. The LCR beats the Clio 182, the CTR, the Focus Rs and the new Golf GTi around the track.
Plus who was driving the cars, what was the track temp, I bet it was'nt plato driving the LCR round their track, that would have made a differnece would'nt it.
Horses for course springs to mind.
If you compare Tiff's and VBH's time in the 911 Tiff is over a second quicker than her!
Pretty sure it was just quicker than the Cayenne S, not Cayman S. Slight difference there..........
The other thing to note is that typically the later cars run during the series will pick up time due to 2 things, 1) the drivers learning eactly where and how to cut / align corners, and 2) the track actually getting quicker from the use. Look at the Top Gear track times which have fallen by 10% as the series progresses, mostly due to lots of sticky rubber being layed down on the air field, but also due to how much cutting of corners goes on now. (in early series the stig never had more than half a tyre off the track, now on the final 2 corners he's got virtually the whole car off the track.
In summary i woudn't get to excited about lap times for road cars, bit of fun but no meaningful comparison unless driven by the same driver on the same day etc etc
It also beat an 500Bhp Caynenne S - i know which one i would rather have!
the cayanne s is not 500bhp the turbo has 450bhp the s is 340bhp
hang on the thread title says top gear?
Andy Mills you muppet - thanks so much for correcting me over 50Bhp.
I know, my mistake.
Doubt it unless the conditions were totally different, 4 secs is a MASSIVE difference on a track.
Am I alone here, or would anyone else sh@g Vicky Butler Wotserface
Think your on your own matey!
TBH though i would There is something attractive about her!
A wet track can easily take 4 seconds a lap off!
Thank god for that, now two of us can take the forthcoming grief
Maybee its a midlands thing...
nowt wrong with VBH - she sure is a sassy one; and yes I'm from the Midlands too
(old enough to know better)
lmao, same here.its her voice more than anything for me.foxy little thing in the flesh
no really, in the flesh she looks like a scaggy old woman.
sorry, but once you get past the fact that she's pretty small, would make jason look like the green giant and can drive - she's not *that* nice.
and she sounds like she's eaten a box of nails.
