I also love Mosport.......a high speed, smooth flowing track with only one really tight turn (5b). Have tracked there a number of times myself.

Yes the M6 with street rubber, in the 1:40s (high). I think a really good driver can get 1:40 flat in the M6, consistently. I had a tricked out 944 Turbo. My fastest lap was a 1:35 in that car but consistently floated at the 1:40 mark.

But that was years ago when I was a better driver, good rubber and cars weighing less than 3000 pounds.

I need more seat time to learn drive the M6 better. The car "feels" light but it isn't. The power is awesome. In MDM, traction control stays on from 5b to 6 even playing with the throttle.

When David Empringham was coaching, he was commenting that the car felt like it had more than 500 hp I just need to work out how to get that 500 hp+ around a corner a second a corner faster.
