If I had to *guess* I'd imagine that lap was around 2:07.669...
But again, just guessing here...
Technically, LIVE TIMING is not allowed. I believe that's the language in the National Operations Manual. Data loggers and video recording equipment was not explicitly prohibited.
Therefore I'm going to interpret that as, while HPDEs are not timed events, timing, for personal use while not on track, is allowed.
And yes, 2:07 (and change) on street tires at Chuckwalla CW is, IMO, pretty damn impressive. And the chunks falling off of the tires proves it.
