Look at the times. corvette beat the M3 and the M3 CSL... same driver, same track. Ouch guys... Some of you have been very wrong. But I thought the list was interesting, to see how little of a difference there really is. Keep in mind they are all, except the obvious American cars, vette and viper are the two that stuck in my mind, Euro spec cars. But they did knock the vette pretty hard during their televised test...

Sometimes they drive on wet, other times on dry so that 1 or 2 seconds doesn't really matter.

Lot of variables, but I'm not going to change any convictions I have about any of those cars, based on what one guy on one track on one day can turn in them

they are all new cars... so that should all be good. Also the guy is a really good driver and spends several hours with each car before the final timed run. I think it's pretty legit. Check out that sleepyfish.com site and check out some of the videos. Great show.
