While we mope around the garage with warmed cider/eggnogg in hand, wishing
for race season to return, I'm hoping that someone can dig up track lap
times from the old Group 44/Kastner-Brophy teams. Preferably, I'd like to
see the TR6 times, but that's because I am TR6entric.
Maybe someone has already done, this, but I think it is a fun excercise to
compare the lap times of the old race cars (stripped, obscene power/weight,
vintage race rubber and legendary drivers) with modern-day production sports
cars (porky, computer-controlled FI & brakes & suspension, terrific rubber
and magazine hacks with inflated egos and copy to sell).
Was Tullius' TR6 faster than a Z06 around Sebring? Was Devendorf's GT6
faster than a 350Z around Willow Springs?
So if someone can provide a reference to where these times may be published
(or even has the original slips...hint, hint), I'd be delighted to attempt
the research and write up what I find here.
I guess you can tell I've finished my holiday shopping and wrapping, and
have time on my hands.
