Well, I did catch him - passed 2 other cars to get to him. Not my fault someone crashed in front of us and they closed the session... (A nice E36 M3 with the rare cloth interior).

I did make this post half in jest of course, but I was actually pretty surprised. Based on other various tests I've seen or read about the cars seemed pretty close, so when you throw a better driver in the AMG and my worn tires I was expecting to be lapped, frankly speaking.

Imagine my surprise when I spotted him and was able to close within less than two laps. In the twisty and slippery parts his car seemed a handful, and even onto the main straight he couldn't really pull away (due to the greater exit speed of the M).

And of course I conveniently didn't mention the fully built Miata who was braille-reading my license plate in the same twisty stuff... oops...
