The goal here was to MATCH the real life lap time using GT Sport (Arcade Time Trial). I did end up a little ahead. I didn't realize that IRL the timing track is 200 meters shorter than a full lap. GT Sport setup was all "Reset to Default" except for tires - used Racing Soft. With Racing Super Soft I often beat the IRL time. This is challenging because a) it's the Nordschleife, and b) the only guide to how well you're "matching" is the section times as you go. Also note, I don't proclaim my lap as a clean lap - I tore up some grass in a few spots, but with a DS4, and on my second try, I think it matches pretty well.
