    We have sent our resident alien racer Dragos Haba to the Nürburgring Nordschleife this week to test the legendary Lotus 98T on the mother of all racing tracks.

    The car of choice in this first episode of the One Car, One Lap in 4K series dates from 1985 and is best known for it's driver in Formula 1: three time world champion Ayrton Senna da Silva who drove a similar JPS styled Lotus-Renault in which he scored his two first victories in the pinnacle of motorsports.

    As a tribute to the Brazilian inspiring master, Dragos would not settle before he posted a new world record lap with the classic open wheeler that puts out roughly 1,300 bhp. A blistering 05:25:017 lap was the result, beating the previous world record time by no less than seven seconds.

    Now the benchmark is set it's your turn to show your pace and see if you can match or outpace the new lap record! Feel free to leave us a video response on our YouTube channel with your attempt!

    The first season of the One Lap, One Car video-series will contain 10 videos in total published on YouTube twice a week on Tuesday and Thursday. If you would like to stay up-to-date and receive notifications of new stunning videos, make sure to subscribe to our channel.

    or even better: " “Some say that the outline of his left nipple is exactly the same shape as the Nurburgring, and that he’s never seen an episode of Top Gear because he’s a huge fan of Midsomer Murders. All we know is he's called the Haba!"
