Well now, isn't this interesting
I have stone-walled at a time of 1:27:00 at Donington in the Lambo. To go faster I shall need to spend alot of time with the setup, since I need to get the car to ride rumblestrips and curbs better. But, IMHO, a 1:26:00 is about the best I can hope for. So, I'm considerably slower than CarlitosF1 and qaz232.
I'm using a racing wheel and pedals, with no aids except auto-clutch, since I don't have a clutch, whereas you guys are using rumblepads and keyboards. I am now understanding an important point with regards hotlaps and "aliens": It is possible to lap faster when using keyboard or rumblepad with a few aids on than with a racing wheel and pedals and no aids...
So, I'm out of the race for the fastest lap at Donington
Keep at it CarlitosF1, you might just surprise yourself with your final time AND not too shabby for a "noob" either
I have no experience racing GTR2 with any input devices other than wheel and pedals, so I'm using logic without experience here. CarlitosF1, try qaz232's setup suggestions, and also use the driving aids of stability control and anti-spin. You should be able to improve your time somewhat, since the car will be more stable under really quick direction changes, hard acceleration and riding rumblestrips, especially when using a keyboard or gamepad!
Good luck and have fun
