Well, I have raced that guy... He is na idiot... He got up to the point of crashing me specifically on the start to make certain he would win. But at that time, he was fast, but was not doing suspecious times (more or less same laptimes as me). Maybe he uped his game...

Maybe you are using a loaner and he had a custom?

It's a wonder, because his fastest lap is only 1 sec faster. If I had the same car, maybe I would easily reach 3 ot 4 sec faster a lap giving the car performance difference. His first lap is around 1:53~ sec

Indeed I am using a loaner & he's using a purchased car.

It depends on the car itself. That car has a very good handling so if you can drive it you  will fly or he is using a wheel.

I was checking the vídeo and he was 2s faster then you! ;) Anyway, most likely it only has to do with the fact he had a custom car, dont think is a matter of skill. Also, after seeing the complete race I do believe you maybe are not custom to find guys faster then you, and because of that you took a couple of minutes to start driving closer to the limit! ;)

Maybe, I find his lines rather weird, especially right after he passed me. Tighter suspension & less downforce would make sense in that situation versus a loaned car.

I saw a car "jumping" over me, next to me and in front of me yesterday! Any idea how they have a flying car?

For a whole lap around Brands Hatch and on another occasion a long sector of Bathurst, i've seen a car persistently about 2-3 feet off the track surface the entire lap,  bouncing off barriers (Bathurst) and reappearing perfectly straight in the middle of the track.  Myself and every other car I encountered was 'normal' and not in an alien hover-car.

@MrDeap - I had hoped your 'wierd' was this!

The only thing I can think of is lag that make his racing line look bad & he has superior tune.
