This one moment

Do you have a moment right now? About 84 seconds? Then you can simply read the following text. Or, if you have a Porsche 911 GT2 RS at hand: a lap on the Michelin Raceway Road in Atlanta.

Albert Einstein already knew that time is relative. Because let's be honest for once: When we stand in front of the coffee machine early in the morning and press the button for a double espresso, the liquid seems to run into the cup in slow motion. In contrast to this, a lap on the race track seems very fast to us.

David Donohue, class winner of the 24 Hours of Daytona and Le Mans, and Randy Pobst proved how fast such a lap can be. Pobst only needed 1:24,88 minutes for it at the end. His vehicle: Porsche 911 GT2 RS. The legendary Track: Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta. Also there, was a Porsche 911 GT3 RS which with 1:26,24 was the second production car to break the existing lap record.

So the next time you make yourself a cup of coffee, just think of all the other things you can do during this time.
