My German is a bit rough, but my interpretation of the article is that it was driven without speed limits in place. Regardless, Spyder has less contact patch, less sticky tires and far less aero grip, so it being a bit off pace of the GT4 makes sense. That fact that it gets as close as it does (~0.5% slower) is actually impressive as hell. Granted, the article seems to indicate that the GT4 was much easier to get the 7:40 out of, whereas the 7:42 in the Spyder required being very brave.

7:40 BTG times have been reproduced by non-Porsche factory drivers in stock configuration. Here's one of many (this guy is good).

Thank for the reply guys. Yeah I came across that and just got curious. I am guilty of benchmark racing haha I guess but I just genuinely curious!

And thanks for the video Goofnik I saw that a few days ago and it's really quite a fantastic bit of driving!
