Sweet! Looks like the C63 can't stay planted during braking or powering out QUITE as well as the M3. Still good but you can't argue against the performance orientation of the M3. Looks good

Cool vid.

Fast forwarded through it, but noticed that the M3's oil temp jump to the 3/4 mark after starting smack dab in the middle at the beginning of the race.

The C63 really pulls on the ISF on the straights. And infiniti should offer a high performance version with a variant of the gtr engine.

Lol at 'Pirot Sport'.

They obviously thought that'd be the outcome as they started it in reverse order.

Fun format starting with the faster cars at the back of the grid, but the C63 driver could have easily shut the door on the M3 for that passing opportunity.

As hard as the C63 can pull on all of them it would be really hard to pass on a fairly narrow track like that.

Nice find ... I think I saw it some time ago ... still nice to see it again.

Goes to show you how the M3 outperforms the others in turns ... give the M3 some room and soon you can admire it only from the back Did you fellows notice the size and approximate weight of the drivers (the ///M driver in the black suit far right at the end) looks like the ///M driver was the bigger and heavier of the four.

Driver skill of course plays a very large role as well.

They use a reverse starting grid based on the lap times.

I'm not sure why this is on the cover page. That video is at least 4 years old, and has been posted many times on this foRum.

not really surPrised with that result.

This video shows a lot of the differences and pros and cons in these cars. HP, balance, transmissions.

I'm glad they used a Civic M3
