If i have time, i will take a look at it this afternoon. Do you use a wheel, a joypad or the keyboard? Without a wheel and pedals it will be very difficult for you to get near the best times, no matter how much you train. I you plan to play this game for a lg time, a wheel is definitely a very good investment.

I had a look at your lap and the first two things I would suggest are:
Do whatever you can (practice, practice, practice) to stay on the "racing line". GTL and all racing games give you a hint where to go. In GTL there's a darker line on the track where "most of the cars go, leaving rubber" This is really noticeable at places where cars usually brake, turn or accelarate.
In the first picture you can see a very dark area - that's where all the cars are going and you are nowhere near that "racing line"
Even on the straights where cars don't put down so much rubber, GTL gives you a hint and in the second picture, you can see you are on a decent line.
The car can go faster than you are driving it at the moment. You are not near the "limit". I'd suggest turning up the sound for "Tire scrub" and "skid" - maybe all the way to 150% or 200%. At the moment the car is not coming close to skidding - it can go a lot faster before you risk crashing. With those two settings very loud you will know when you are driving the car as fast as it can go. See the third picture for the Audio setting.
Hope that gives you some improvements. Happy racing :)

I have watched some of your onboard laps during our races - I wonder if you have controller issues. I have noticed that sometimes the car movements seem very abrupt.
With your controller, for accelerate/brake - what do you use?
With most of these cars smooooooth inputs are the fastest way to go.
And as psyfungi says - find the racing line. Just staying on line will find you more time than finding the car's limit. At the moment, for you, a clean, steady lap on the racing line will probably feel slow - but will show a better lap time. A good lap is very rarely full of drama and big saves - just neat and clean.

Roger's spot on about being smooth with the controls.
I took a Mini out for a spin and tried driving it as calmly and smoothly as possible, and take a good line around the track.
To help keep everything calm I didn't go over 5,500 RPM and eased off the throttle very early before the corners. I only had to use the brakes very lightly at two places. And I didn't want the car to skid or slide at all.
Result: 2:27.6 compared to your 2:47
Have a look.
(Imagine a mod where you could have a "shopping-run" derby where you get disqualified for sliding :))
