Completely believable. I remember at a wet track weekend a couple of instructors busted out their GMC Yukon and Toyota Tundra to run with Red Group, and they were lapping Elises. Even if Clarkson's "It's not what you drive, it's how you drive it" isn't completely true for fuel economy, it certainly is for the track.

Stories like that remind me of this article, which I can't help but re-read from time to time: http://blogs.insideline.com/straight...-mechanic.html
