Impressive. Wondering if the BMW time will be lower than 7:20? Likely will be faster than the GT63s once official manufacturer times are published. Still some ways off from current crop of Porsche GT cars - not surprisingly

Does anyone know what tyres this was on?

GT63S did it on Cup 2, be interesting to see this on Cup 2.

Not sure, but I'd guess it was on the P Zero Corsa tires since that what you can spec the car with.

Imagine how much quicker the time would be if the driver didn't have to also think about constantly closing the glovebox or adjusting whatever was bothering him on his suit.

Both hands of the steering wheel at 1:39, 1:49 and 3:56.
Catches a slide a 4:25.
The glove box pops open at 6:29; closes it at 6:35. It pops open again at 6:41, closes it again at 7:52.


Impressive.

That glovebox does not want to stay shut

Will be interesting to see how the official time will compare to the GT63S, especially considering the GT set the record in less than optimal conditions (damp track).

Sledgehammer of a machine. I think this is the most interesting, special and cohesive car BMW have produced for ages. A swansong to ICE, no question the next M5 will be some sort of hybrid.

I'm a bit surprised why BMW isn't releasing the factory time yet, despite Markus raving about it repeatedly. Any idea?

Be interesting to see what it could do on Cup 2's. Probably be close, if not faster than the GT63S.

Very impressive.

I'm sorry but this guy's a hot mess. You should never be cabin adjusting while time attacking.

Fast time, but a disaster of a lap. Sport Auto should be embarrassed by the mess they made for this driver. Loose water bottle in the passenger door, key is flying around the center console, glove box won't stay closed because of all the cables they have running into it, something loose in the drivers side door.

All of this going on while the driver is trying to lay down a fast time. WTF?

I was expecting this to be closer to the Project 8 time to be honest, but the guy had such a mess on his hands, maybe it forces bmw to release their time?

Hell of a run, and with unnecessary distractions.
