Time Attack with the Toyota GT 86 on Madrid Circuit

For round 2, 46 competitors took the wheel at the AutoIndustriya.com GT5 Challenge virtual time-attack competition at the 2012 Trans Sport Show. Sponsored by Toyota, competitors took the Toyota GT 86 on the fast but highly-technical Madrid City Circuit in Gran Turismo 5.

Early on in the competition, Gerhart Santos set a 1:48.447 lap but was dissatistfied with his stint and bought in another stint, setting a blistering 1:44.941 which would remain uneclipsed for the rest of the day. Towards the end of the competition, Victor Buensuceso would clock in a really close laptime, just one-hundreths of a second shy at 1:45.052. Gab Junaego rounded up the top three with a 1:46.537.
