HOTLAPS

HOW FAST IS YOUR CAR

Instructor Marko Klein's reference rounds provide an overview of vehicle performance on the Pannonia Ring.

These are the best times that can be achieved in two-person operation under the conditions prevailing at the time of the test drive (road temperature, tire condition, traffic on the race track, etc.), which can be faster under ideal conditions.

 

The lap time serves as the basis for the ranking. In addition, we also supply data such as lateral forces, braking deceleration and maximum speed reached. Also parameters such as performance and vehicle weight, so that an interesting mix is created, from which a lot can be deduced about the track suitability and which can help the interested party with a purchase decision, if the vehicle should also serve as a track tool.

 

With "Markos Statement" we want to give his, as objectively as possible, brief impression of the respective vehicle characteristics with the focus on the race track. We hope you enjoy reading, comparing and choosing your personal favorite :-)

Which vehicles are used?
The vehicles of our participants and vehicles from our own fleet will be used. The vehicles are kindly provided to us by the owners of the hotlaps and are therefore not factory optimised, new-value press vehicles. We also have no influence on the make and condition of tyres and brakes. So if you own a vehicle that is suitable for the race track and want to know how it performs: Marko is ready to start!

"One Lap - One Chance" - The procedure of the HOTLAP

The procedure is always identical:

  • Warm up lap

  • Hotlap

  • Cool down lap

  • ONE try!

  • All electronic auxiliary systems OFF!

Is this lap "at the limit"?
The general conditions have certainly changed in recent years, but we still stick to the "one turn" concept, even if this sometimes presents our chief instructor with major challenges.
While rear-wheel drive cars show a behaviour that can be assessed relatively quickly for experienced motor sports enthusiasts, modern, powerful, all-wheel drive sports cars tend to show indifferent behaviour at the limit.
In combination with an overall concept designed for safety and supported by electronic systems, the car can therefore react very differently in basically similar situations. In order to determine the best possible lap time under perfect conditions, it would therefore be necessary to first test different set-ups, complete 5 to 10 laps and only then go on the hunt for times.
While the optimisation potential (see hotlap at the fastest possible time) for some cars is therefore in the tenths of a second range, it can be in the range of 1-2 seconds for high-tech super sports cars. On high-performance cars, the choice of tyres also determines a further 1-2 seconds. If time permits, we may drive hotlaps in different set-ups for comparison in the future. However, one thing is for sure: Marko gives everything and leaves little room for improvement :-)
