How do you calculate the G/force created by a car on a skid pad from the measurements that are taken of a car at it’s maximum speed?

These are the measurements; weight 74 grams, elapsed time 0.725 seconds, radius of the skid pad 10.25 inches.

Are the centripetal and centrifugal forces the same value?

Please show the formula and the process that you used to arrive at the G/force of this car.
