An outstanding lap. I would caution however, that this season the laps are run by "Stig" Tiff Needell and he seems faster all around than the previous Stig... But that's just my subjective opinion :)

The lap time however, speaks for itself... that's 'supercar' territory!

i was told yesterday that tiff is no longer doing stig duties.
im amazed, but my heart knew it would happen! im so glad!

Damn... still slower than the Ariel Atom V8.... oh well... nothing a little modding won't fix. :)



So what? Ariel Atom is a go-kart with license plates. Most people don't consider it a real street car. :irock:

Simply a stunning time, well done me! :)
Some say that I break into people’s houses at night and leave two mysterious extra keys in a kitchen drawer.

And that as a result of buying Pirelli condoms this week, I now have seventeen children.

All we know is, I'm called The Stig

The drag race between the hopped up Jag was priceless. I never thought I would say this but in that form...the Jag does not look better than the GTR. The Jag looks like it is trying to hard to look badass whereas the GTR already looks sinister and purposeful.

na chevy just added some rubber and some other computer stuff, so its much better than prior. ya if the nissan would only add street legal racing tires it could be faster, but it has not yet, possibly never, but would be an option people WOULD buy dont you agree?
