MkI GT3 was not a US car and was made in 1999.
2009 997S just ran 7:50 too.
There are other times of the MK1 RS on cups but hey, whatever. The facelift carrera S time is on "sport" tires.
BMW turns a good time and it is an anomaly. BMW managed a 7:50 with an X5 chassis, it is obvious they are capable of whatever goal they set. I suppose the supercharged CSL running 7:22.8 is an anomaly as well, faster than... well almost everything.
