So that means there is a new episode of the LFA on Top Gear USA this season?? Last season they only did a lap around Infineon raceway.

Great lap time. Quicker than LP570-4 Superleggera and 458 Italia.

Which race track did they use? (EDIT: nvm must be the Infineon Raceway)

Great lap time, almost matching the ZR-1 with its newly equipped godly tires!

Top Gear USA uses El Torro race track and not Infineon raceway (LFA's lap time was 1:44 at Infineon raceway):

Damn- I think the Stig is secretly Tanner Foust. Perhaps not, but whoever it is obviously got some goodness out of the LFA. The ACR and Vette have some serious rubber and are barely any faster.

I have heard it's Paul Tracy who is the Stig.
