NAA Member News: BAC Mono Smashes Production Car Lap Record at Zolder Circuit, Belgium
Briggs Automotive Company (BAC) has once again made history, as its Mono supercar has become the fastest-ever production car to lap the famous Zolder Circuit in Belgium…
The single-seater set a lap time of 1 minute 38.12 seconds in the hands of Belgian TV station FLEET with driver Jeffrey van Hooydonk in the cockpit, in damp conditions, beating the previous best record set by a McLaren 650S (1 minute 38.23 seconds) by over a tenth of a second.

The Mono is no stranger to giant-killing track success, having set the fastest-ever Goodwood Festival of Speed Roadcar Hill Climb time, topping Top Gear’s Power Lap Leaderboard in 2013, and famously becoming the quickest car ever tested by evo Magazine at the Anglesey Coastal Circuit last year – seeing off race-specific, slick-shod competition like the McLaren P1 GTR in the process. Plus, its Hungaroring lap time of 1:54.00 in 2015, nine seconds faster than a Ferrari 458 Speciale, further underlines the Mono’s credentials.
