Lightning Lap Outcomes 2006 to 2022: Each Automotive, Each Lap Time

Once we began Lightning Lap 16 years in the past, a 2006 Ford GT claimed the quick time with a 3: 00.7. Immediately, that lap doesn’t even land within the quickest third of a document guide that features 302 automobiles.

Every time on this listing tells a narrative concerning the capabilities of a single automobile. Taken as a complete, the great listing of Lightning Lap occasions tells a saga of long-running rivalries, steady technological progress, and an evolving notion of what constitutes a efficiency automobile (we’re speaking about you, Lamborghini Urus). A single overarching theme carries via all of it: Sooner. At our 2019 Lightning Lap, our quickest contender, the 2019 McLaren Senna, set an all-time document with a 2: 34.9 lap. This 12 months, the 306-hp Honda Civic Kind R Restricted Version tied the aforementioned Ford GT from our inaugural 12 months at VIR.

Simply because the vehicles have modified with time, so has our occasion. What began as a handful of Automotive and Driver workers with a few toolboxes has grown to a military of staffers, together with factory-supplied coaches and help squads bearing extra spare tires than a Rascal-scooter meet. By way of all of it, Virginia Worldwide Raceway’s 4.1-mile Grand Course has proved itself the final word check of recent equipment, a North American Nürburgring Nordschleife. To be fast round VIR, a automobile needs to be nimble sufficient to barter tight hairpins and encourage the boldness to deal with the Climbing Esses at triple-digit speeds. Additionally, horsepower doesn’t damage.
