Looking at Mallala [most relevant to me] times the outright record is 1.02 57 from Paul Stokell in a Formula Holden. August 94!! 5000s were low 5s in the late 90s.
Superbike is 1.05 83 a tad slower than Tony Ricciardello in the Alfa/Chev Sports Sedan. Supercar is actually still relevant at 1.08.14 as they really dont go any faster now than in 98! The AWD production car record is Steve Knight in a Lancer at 1. 19.36. I suspect they will be a couple of sec faster now. Bigger tyres and a few more engine freedoms covers that.
The chap doing the clip was not 10/10ths. Though was not hanging around either. I believe the open class bikes are doing 200+mph on the straights, the Subaru made 165. There is most of the time there alone. I doubt the bikes corner faster or come off corners faster. But straight line with their power to weight ratio they are bloody quick
Edit, just found PI times. Outright GP bike is 1 28.1. Superbike is 1 32.31. Moto 2 is 1 32.81.
Cars outright, Simon Wills Formula Holden 1 24.22, Supercar 1 32.02
Sports sedan is 1 29.2, Production car [Glen Seton Evo10] is 1 44 39.
Actually the GP bikes are put into perspective with Historic race cars. Paul Stubber March 81C 1 28 711. F5000 Tom Tweedie Chevron 1 28.39 and the Veskanda Sports Car. John Bowe 1 28 98.
