It's an incredible car. Running :27s out of the box with no setup and mid-life tires is unheard-of for a GT car. Above and beyond the performance, it's such a friendly car to drive. You can get it in and just go fast; it doesn't demand exceptional precision and punish errors like a car this fast should, it just hauls. You can see why this chassis won so many endurance races; even I could drive this car for 60-90m at a time without being particularly tired afterward.

Great driving Ben. Did you have any noise limit issues at LS?

This was an unlimited sound day, so... flaaaat ooooout!!

Otherwise I believe it blows about 107dB, so it might pass a 105dB day with diverter pipes.

Nice! Did you request to convert your NFGT allocation to a MkII allocation, or are you still getting a “street” NFGT?

Thanks for sharing, great video. Incredible how fast you close on the car in front of you. Regular NFGT is a rocket on the track can’t imagine the performance of MK II.

Ben's lap times in a 488 GT3 car at Laguna Seca were within a gnat's ass of Alessandro's times in same car. Great to see the MkII in the hands of such a skilled driver!
