I was heartened by the posts on my other topic so in the absence of WG giving anything away for the best time around the track i thought i would.

 

The best I've seen so far is actually my time of 2:36.97 BUT THIS WONT COUNT

 

OK the rules.

 

1. Your post must show the complete results screen (as above)

2. Attach your replay so I can double check for fairness

3. You must race around the whole track wih no shortcuts and no assistance from others (pushing with boosts etc)

4. erm...... I'm sure ppl will point out some more as we go on.

 

The prize will be some in-game goods that i decide nearer the time but it will be over £10, it just depends how generous i am feeling at the time i suppose. I will update this initial post regularly with the best time so no need to check through the topic.

 

 

[perhaps someone else wants to do something for top damage?? or anythign that isn't farm-able like WG's "he who plays the most wins" gifts :facepalm:]

Oh... considering I jump over the wall on the last straight to get a shorter track for my times. I guess I'm out on 2 :P Tho not gotten below 36 yet. Seen one do 34 tho. But I'll keep trying.

havent even tried to switch lanes so far, as jumping seems to slow you down a bit, so im trying to stick to the surface of the track as much as possible, too bad you cant set best times when you spawn on the right side of the track, i get all of my best laptimes on the left lane.

I think there should be replays attached so the judge can verify it :D

Just pulled a 37.20 (with all trophies), not sure if its my best ever, but hats off to that quick time, I'm beaten either way ;)

well, it was same with me, it didnt feel quick, but somehow it was 35,3 ;)

What a surprise that the T-50 holds all the best times...

2:35:07 but with a friendly T-50 doing major blocking moves, I think given the right circumstances, 2:34:50 and under should be possible. 

Spoiler

Got plenty in 2:38 but that's with pressing F during the countdown to try and avoid being focussed.

Best I got is a 2:40 with the Chaffee. Guess I will have to go T-50 for the best possible time? Not interested in entering the competition, I got all I need/want and then some, but I do like the idea of racing against a best time.

Yeah small mistake coming down off the 2nd ramp where you skidded and lost some speed but apart from that a pretty perfect lap :great:

 

Without anyone else coming forward i will gladly buy some stuff for you (check your DM)
