Won't be doing the whole field but Davison's lap contained his three best sectors. Whincup's best three gives a 1:47.4706, SVG has a 1:47.6970 and McLaughlin was a 1:47.9568.

Apparently, the organisers already calculate this. They call it Eclectic Time.

A number of factors meant not all was quite what it seemed on the official timing sheets, which relied on the traditional start/finish line timing beacon.

Some teams were timing their cars off a second beacon, positioned at the exit of Turn 13, which meant they could finish a ‘lap’ and pit immediately, saving precious time.

Notably though, Davison was the fastest on the official sheet and in the ‘eclectic’ order, which adds each car’s three fastest sectors of the day, making a theoretical best lap time.

Others such as Jamie Whincup looked far better on the eclectic order than the official; the Red Bull Holden Racing Team ace leaping from 13th to second.

Wrong!!!

If we can't get a good understanding of who was quick/ quickest, there is nothing to talk about. I also heard Dane say T8 was doing it, so the 2 best teams did it, so we have nil form guide from the day. Might as well cancel this public test day & give it back to the teams as a private one so they can do whatever they want.. There is no point in making it public if these games are played!
