Unless my math is wrong, lower number is quicker?
Actually, the 718GTS from a year ago (LL#12) ran a 2:56.7, so 3 seconds quicker than the M2C.

Still can't get my hear wrapped around the Urus though.

What still blows my mind on that master list is the time of the 2015 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 with 2:50.9. It just hits so far out of its league. Even today, at the price you can grab one for, I really don't think there is a better option out there.

There's a reason why Chris Harris owns(ed) one.

I see them all the time at my track days, they are beasts.
Plus the fact that running costs are MUCH higher with the GT3/RS than the ZL1 1LE.

Today, it does seem that the all-out performance cars that are priced in the $50-$75K range are a tough sell. As others have pointed out, many of the new 3-series are not the performance versions, but 320 or 330i.
We should all be grateful for the stellar options we have and that they're even being offered as we know making money is the manufacturers first priority.

Back on topic: Lightning Lap keeps getting better and better every year. We can see the development of each vehicle as the years go by. Who would have thought that an NA, 500hp GT3RS would be quicker around a track than a 918 with almost twice the HP?!?! Hats off to all.
To be fair, if someone owns a GT3 or RS variant, and tracking it, then they are probably not too worried about running costs. I still agree though that the 1LE is nuts. If it wasn't for the major visibility issue I experienced, I'd probably own one too; my 991TTS has better visibility.
