What is a good lap time for the Calder long track?

G’day all.

I’ve just come back from a “fun” day at Calder. It was on the long circuit. The best bit was sprinting at night and seeing brake discs glowing orange/red hot after turn 1.

I’ve got a 2001 (1.8 litre) Integra R with Bridegestone RE55’s and my best lap was a 1:13.64. I was running with a few other Type Rs and we seemed pretty evenly matched. I suffered from a lack of torque coming up Mt Jane and coming out of the turns but my little Honda was very good under brakes. The gearing coming off turn 1 and the wiggly bits before the last corner didn’t suit the Integra and it doesn’t have enough torque to pull a higher gear.

My question is what is a “good” time around Calder? What have XR8 Falcons, SS Commodores, Subaru WRX’s achieved around there (I know that Murphy did a 1:03 in the Elfin V8 Clubman)?

The “track kill” part of the story is that I got creamed by an air-cooled Porsche 911 going into corners, during corners, out of corners, on the straights, etc (he did a 1:07).
