The "Beat Bizzare Creations" Challenge

**Huge thanks to "krssn" from the DC-Talk forum for the photo**

This challenge was found in Dreamcast Magazine Issue 16 (Paragon Publishing). Its another fastest lap competition with times set by Kevin Reilly an member of Bizarre Creations' staff.  Prizes were nothing special (Joytech goodies).


Some very good times set but after playing yesterday I manage to surpass them. All cars had manual transmission with ABS turned off.  Weather was Clear.

GREAT GEORGE STREET EAST II/ST JAMES S-4 
Car: Mazda Miata 
Bizarre Creations' Best Lap: 17.802 secs
My Best Lap: 17.006 secs 

TRAFALGAR EAST/TRAFALGAR S-8 
Car: Peugeot 206 
Bizarre Creations' Best Lap: 17.030 secs 
My Best Lap: 16.533 secs 

HOUSE OF PARLIAMENT SOUTH/WESTMINSTER S-6 
Car: Alfa 156 
Bizarre Creations' Best Lap: 25.869 secs 
My Best Lap: 25.093 secs 

EMBARCADERO EAST/FISHERMANS M-7
Car: Audi TT Coupe 
Bizarre Creations' Best Lap: 48.243 secs 
My Best Lap: 45.228 secs 

CHUO-DORI HIGASHE/SHINJUKU S-9 
Car: Mitsubishi FTO 
Bizarre Creations' Best Lap: 29.801 secs 
My Best Lap: 27.932 secs with accidental wall tap 

I have checked with owners of subsequent issues and although the same challenge is repeated in the next issue (#17) there doesn't seem to be any mention of the readers' results.  The above times were also mentioned again in issue #28 so it's highly likely the competition was either abandoned or the results were not made public :(
