New Grattan Lap Record

Robert Jensen set a new lap record yesterday...a 1:19.004.

MyLaps.com

He beat Tray Batey's record from last year...

edit: WERA has not said it's official, yet.

Re: New Grattan Lap Record

That says Friday practice on the event tag. Lap records can only be set in a race, otherwise Greg Gibson (1:18:37) would have the record he set during practice in 01.

and your girlfriend too.

...and I think that's why WERA has not declared it as an official record. Still haulin' arse though.

From the wera board

Quote:
No one cares when it's broken as long as it can be verified by someone impartial.

The issue is people think it was an 18.8 - not the 19.035 Tray did last year. I'm not sure where the 18.8 time came from but hopefully later today it'll be a moot point.

It's amazing how stupid some people can be.

Re: New Grattan Lap Record

Hmmmm.. How can I shave a mere 17 seconds off my lap times there?

According to my calculations, I just need to increase my average speed at every point around the track by just 16 MPH. Piece of cake.

Re: New Grattan Lap Record

From Mongo on the WERA Board:

Quote:
New record no matter what we thought the old to be - Robert Jensen 1:18.291, he and Tray were both in the low 18's.
That my friend is hauling the mail, congrats guys

and he broke his own record: 1:17.840 - lap two of the F1 race, Robert Jensen

It's amazing how stupid some people can be.
