    Default FST Fast Laps and Record Laps

    I think this is some good info to post so people get a feel (make comparisons) for FST performance levels at various tracks vs. other classes.

    These are the ones I found. I'm sure I've missed a few, so please excuse me if I missed anyone.

    Default Lower still

    Today I got a lap in George Podgorski's draft late in the race for a 2:11.537. The new pavement is fast!

    Default Barber Lap Record

    I was able to set a new FST track record this Sat. at Barber with a 1:44.925. Thanks to Stevan Davis for his help that allowed me to do it.

    Default New Fast Lap at Nelson Ledges

    It's been quite a while since I posted here on ApexSpeed and thought a fast lap was a good place to start.
    The FST's ran this past weekend at Nelson Ledges and Doug Seim lowered the previous fast lap by a solid half second.

    Congratulations to Doug and so glad to see the class so strong after 20 years of great racing.
