Why would it be news? First of all, I think your average enthusiast will not be able to record 7:26 simply because of the cost to shut the track down for a full-on time assault; tourist laps, BTG, etc. aren't the same thing (though you can get reasonable estimates). Secondly, as you point out, the rear-engined Porsches take time to learn. Some mid-engined cars take a driver of race-car caliber to be fast enough to correct a spin; thus, Basseng for Evo. Even Rohrl wrecked a Carrera GT on the circuit. You think an average enthusiast can record 7:28 in the CGT? Any proof of an average enthusiast matching Basseng's time in the Zonda F or Maserati? Does it matter? Probably not. Basseng did the time (and could probably go faster). About Prost: "The steering wheel is fine, very fast but the front is not so intuitive." This is the first I've heard about the steering on the GT3 RS. I'd also be interested to know which settings he was using to extract the best from the car. PSM?
