Tetsuya Tada said that in an interview with American publication Road&Track and if pushed hard enough, the car should be able to post a 7 minute 40 seconds lap.
However, they have yet to go for an official time attack as the team believes the car's 250km/h speed limiter would steal valuable seconds off its lap time.
Tada-san said, “One day, perhaps, we cut the speed limiter and try the time attack. But even just driving it as it is, it’s really fast. On the old course, it’s very easy to break eights - 7:50, 7:40. It will do that easily.”
