Leaderboard

As discussed in an earlier blog post, Las Vegas (and other places) has places you can go to drive high end sports cars and supercars on the track.  Generally normal people like you and me do 5 laps or more on their track with an instructor.  Exotics Racing times these laps and posts them all on their leaderboard here: https://exoticsracing.com/michelin-time-trial-world-challenge.html .  Notice what cars make the vast majority of the fastest laps.  The Porsche GT cars.  Right now the Porsche GT2 RS and GT3 RS hold the top 5 spots.

It took F1 driver Charles Leclerc to get a Ferrari to number 6.  Only 4 of the top 20 are not Porsche.  What this shows to me is how easy it is to drive the Porsche GT cars very fast compared to other supercars.  Even YouTuber Shmee150 can make excellent lap times in his first time out with these cars on this track.

I was really impressed that they were able to hold 1.49g cornering in a stock GT2 RS at this very short track.
On paper the GT2 RS sounds like a monster.  Yet several have taken them to the track for their first time and were surprised how easy it is to drive this car silly fast.  Consider this comparison between a GT3 cup car and a stock GT2 RS at Road America.

Listen to the drivers comments about the relative ease of making fast laps in the GT2 RS.

Next time you are in Las Vegas, see where you fit on the Exotics Racing leaderboard in the GT2 RS.
