List of Top Gear test track Power Lap Times

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is the full list of "official" power lap times on the Top Gear test track.[1]

Qualifying vehicles[edit]

A qualifying vehicle is defined as a road-legal production car on road-legal tyres that has sufficient ride height to clear a standard "sleeping policeman",[2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11] although occasionally vehicles that cannot appear on the list are still timed. Whenever a non-qualifying vehicle is raced, the time is compared to the official power laps but then removed from the board. For example, the Ferrari FXX owned by Michael Schumacher (1:10.7) was taken off the board after because it both failed to meet road legal standards and used slick tyres. The fastest time was made by Caparo T1 (1:10.6) but Clarkson did not accepted because front wing is too low to drive over "sleeping policeman".

Unofficial laps[edit]

Independently reported lap times, not in connection with Top Gear series:

  1. 1:05.3 – Nissan ZEOD RC hybrid mode (internal combustion engine and electric motors).[23]
  2. 1:12.8 – Ultima GTR. After Top Gear allegedly refused to drive it because "they thought it couldn't clear a speed bump", Ultima Sports, Ltd., the company that makes the Ultima GTR, took to the track and set the time, verified by Plans Motorsport.[24]
  3. 1:13.6 – Nissan ZEOD RC pure-electric vehicle mode.[23]
  4. 1:14.2 – Ferrari LaFerrari. Set on 12 June 2015 in damp conditions by Jason Plato as part of television programme TFI Friday's twentieth-anniversary show

Time adjustments[edit]

Sometimes an additional term is written next to the time (such as Hot). This indicates that The Stig and the Top Gear team consider that the prevalent weather conditions have affected the lap time or car's performance. The time on the board is not changed: e.g. 1:50 MM (Mildly Moist) is deemed to be equivalent to 1:48 on a normal dry track. The following list describes how many seconds it costs a car or gives a car an advantage. These adjustments are also not applicable to Formula 1 drivers.

Term Conditions Adjustment
HOT/COLD Track surface or car performance affected by high/low temperature or humidity −1 second
Mildly moist (MM) / Damp (D) Track surface slightly damp with some dry patches after light rain or drizzle −2 seconds
Moist (M) Track surface slightly wet due to shower of rain −3 seconds
Wet (W) / Melted snow (MS) Track surface wet due to light rain or melted snow −4 seconds
Very wet (VW) Track surface very wet (with large puddles) due to heavy rain −6 seconds
