Lotus Exige at Grandsport speedway pulling a 52.828 with a theoretical best of 52.198. Im pretty sure I can work into the 51 second laps with another day at the track. Probably not much more than that in the car on street tires (Toyo R888).
CamZilla on Track

LOST at Grandsport Speedway - Lotus Exige S
Final session (4 total) at Grandsport Speedway with the Lotus Owners of
South Texas (LOST). We were running the 'dogleg'. First video with a Data
Overlay. Using GPSLogger (Data) on Blackberry with RaceRender (video
overlay) to make video. The other two cars in the video are a Fireblade
and a Corvette. Apologize for the crooked video, suction mount moved.
'11 ZR1 Corvette Running at Grandsport Speedway Houston
A few laps at the Grandsport Speedway Houston, clockwise horse shoe
included. My first day out the track with my ZR1. Good track surface. I run
1:05.90 (not on video unfortunately) while with the gold group. (the video
is the silvergroup which was only 2 cars including mine and really not much
challenge). The vehicle is equipped with sunset orange Exhaust commander module on video running with
the Exhaust open. Very happy with the
functionality of it. Good product. Here is their site if you are
No I am not associated with them.
Catching the Elise at Grandsport Speedway
Another track day at GSS with Lotus Owners of South Texas. Fastest lap on
video (fastest of the day was 1:05.4) happens to show the difference
between an Elise and supercharged Exige. For a comparison of 1Hz and 5Hz
data check out the video from March at the same track using a BB for data.
Trackmaster for Android yields a much better result.
Grandsport Speedway CCW Porsche 997
Porsche 997 at Grandsport Speedway going counter clockwise. Doing
lead-follow with an instructor in the S2000 leads to my best lap of the
Video reveals that I should not be downshifting at the end of the back
straight. I should stay in 3rd, take the left hand sweeper at speed, and
downshift for the horseshoe.
Z32 Chasing an E92 M3 on Streets of Willow CCW
So, a 997 Porshe, an E92 M3, and turbo
E46 M3 blaze by me on the main straight. I decide to try and catch up to
them. 997 and E46 have way too much power. Luckily, I can play around with
the E92. Caught him in the corners, and led for a decent while, until my
brakes weren't being happy anymore, and he was catching my on the
Towards the end I point him by, only to keep up with him till the end of
the session haha. I need more power...
