Simple idea, you can drive one lap in any car on any track in any configuration. Let your imagination run wild, not too wild, to try and pass the time until Spa.

Personally, mp4-23 (brawn gp 001 a very close second) around the previous Silverstone configuration.

What would you do?

Would have to be the Mclaren MP4/4, would love to say at Monaco but would be too worried about crashing the car so might opt for Spa instead. In second place was a lotus 49!!

Great thread idea by the way :up:

Ferrari F2002 and then switch middle-race to F2003-GA - with old Bridgestone tires - just for the sake of over-abusing them.
The track is certainly Spa.

Surely Spa in dry conditions. Any car with good downforce. Perhaps V10s wouldn't be the most fun to drive but I would love the sound beneath me.

Perhaps Sakhir or another track with little crash possibility. :p Shanghai or Rouen Les-Essarts are tracks which seem to be an interesting for me if I would look for something other than just being safe.

Car: Williams FW34. Certainly not anything old because I would fear of possible crash consequences in older, more dangerous cars.

Decisions decisions...250F at Pescara, 917 at Old Spa, XJR9 on the Le Mans circuit before they ruined the run to the esses and added the silly chicanes. I'd probably pick a different one each time of asking, at least they are all long circuits so I'd have my money's worth!

Ohhhhhhh........

It'd defo be a toss-up between the Williams FW14B around Silverstone - and a fully boosted Ferrari 126C2 around Monza.

Many spare pants and brave pills needed in both cases :smoking:

The car definitely will be Mclaren MP4-20 (with 'kimi' written on the sidepods :cool: )

Track is the 'Suzuka' circuit, trust me, over the years of sims racing, nothing gives more joy than to nail those 'S's (from T1-T7) in a grippier and powerfull F1 car. :love:

P.S kimi holds the fastest lap with that car on that track ... 1:31.540

One lap isn't enough anywhere.

I'd jump in a Lotus 98T and take it around Brands Hatch, but only because 1985 Silverstone is no more.

obviously the OP meant the ultimate 'one lap' (me thinks) like qualy lap, with in and out laps. :smoking:

in any case, for pounding round a track, suzuka is the best, then interlagos.

I just wanted to know you're dream lap, obviously the more the merrier in the cars we have chosen as they are all incredible machines, but one lap makes it more special than unlimited laps.

I don't wanna die and I'm veeeery suspicious of my "abilities", so I'd probably take something stupid like a touring car in a relatively simple track. Could be the WTCC BMW car at Estoril, for example.

But if we're going on "f*ck it" mode, how about the Brabham-BMW BT52 (1983 F1 season) at Macau.

The Williams 6-wheeler (FW08B) around the old Spa or Nurburgring.

I still find the fact that FIA banned 6-wheelers before it could race very disappointing. They should've given it at least a shot before banning it!

MP4/18 around any track. It would break down exiting the pitlane, so I wouldn´t have time to crash and embarrase myself. :lol:

Audi Quattro, but yeah, going to have to agree. Going to have to stick with a long circuit to have time to notice what is going on.

Great thread. :up:

No point picking cars that someone else did something special in (e.g. 'Ooooh, I wanna drive Senna's McLaren from his Brasil win.'), because then the opportunity loses its meaning, I think. I can't narrow it down to just one car on one track, but I can get it down to three of each. I'd be satisfied with any combination of these.

Cars
Acura (Honda) ARX-02a: My favourite prototype sportscar, and it has what is probably my favourite engine note.
McLaren MP4-20: Possibly the fastest and (my opinion) most beautiful F1 car ever. Oh, and it has a V10.
McLaren MP4-12C Spider: My favourite production car--and the only one in which you'd get to share the experience with someone else.

Tracks
Road Atlanta: Always had a soft spot for this track. Love the layout and the setting.
Spa Francorchamps: This one is pretty self explanatory; basically a longer version of Road Atlanta with even better corners.
Road America: Seeing a pattern here? There's just something cool about racing a car through a forest to me, I guess. I'd pick Le Mans, but I like this layout better.

First one is based in some sort of reality, what reality this is i don't know but the more likely of the two anyway would be an Ariel Atom 500 on the Brands Hatch GP circuit. The complete fantasy would be the RB7 around Suzuka in max downforce trim, no doubt i'd pass out from the G's mid 130R! (If i could actually keep it on the track in the first place and then go fast enough to generate any G force at all!)

For you maybe. I think the complete opposite - hence my choice of driving an FW14b around Silverstone. IMO that would really be tapping in to a bit of magic and history.

I'd even have a whinge over the radio in a Brummie accent just for effect!

Ferrari 412 T2 - Donington or Suzuka or Spa or Monza
Subaru Impreza 555 Gr.A - Fafe
Bentley EXP Speed 8/Audi R8C - Le Mans
Ducati Desmosedici GP7 - Laguna Seca

I think that's all.

Sharknose Ferrari 156 around old Spa.

Long lap and power I could control and set somewhat decent times times in.

If I tried a modern (anything from the three litre era forward) I wouldn't make it any kind of justice. And I can't see any fun in that.
