Hey all!

I just finished the free practice of round 3 of Historic TC2 UK Trophy on Silverstone National circuit.

(It seems I can't link here the pic since I have few posts)

The gap between 1st (Ford Mustang 2+2 Fastback) and 2nd (Ford Escort MK1 RS1600) is 17 seconds!
The Mustang fastest lap is 1:00,723, while the Escort fastest lap is 1:18,270.

How is it possible?

IIRC, there is an issue where sometimes a pitting car gets timed. That 1st place lap likely wasn't a full lap (especially since it's the Mustang which is the slowest of that car group).
