I know at Mosport I have to short shift to not run over the 4 cylinder ones going up the 3/4 mile straight but once we get to corner 8 which is about a 100 mph entry in our cars they are almost flat on entry and run laps 7-9 seconds quicker than we do.I do not really like running with them in the same group as I am always afraid of getting into one if one of us makes a mistake as they are hard to see.
