Guys 5 seconds on a track that's 2.5 miles long seems like alot of time.  However, I routinely put that kind of time (or more) per lap on other drivers in my track sessions who have similar performing cars and are supposed to be as good a driver.  Obviously there's a skill differential there, but it's not unheard of at all.

I campaign a porsche 944 turbo s as my track car.  At the last BMW DE I was put in the highest run group, along with a gaggle of E36 M3's, most of which were modified, some with superchargers etc.  I lapped *every* one of them at least once, some twice in a twenty minute track session.
