Nissan GT-R Sets New Lap Record At Road Atlanta: Video

 
Follow Nelson

If you're not familiar with the name, Leh Keen is one fast, fast driver, proving it season after season in the Rolex Sports Cars Series and, like you'll see here, a range of other events.

As part of a NASA time trial, Keen--wearing street clothes and a helmet--piloted the TopSpeed Motorsports GT-R to a 1:23.8 time around Road Atlanta's famously high-speed, treacherous circuit.

The lap record isn't an outright record--Le Mans Prototypes race here, after all--but it's a GT-R record and a NASA TTR class record. Both feats are impressive. All the more so that it was done in jeans and a windbreaker.

Oh, and the sound of that GT-R ain't half bad, either.
