Its obvious this is a track with not many corners and the power of the Benz is the reason for the faster laptime. Add more curvy corners and cut the long straightlines and the M3 will finish on the top.
We all know the M3 is quicker 9 out of 10 times around a track. Lose on one track, its not a big deal, exceptions do happen sometimes. And this time it happened.

Not sure.

The track looks like a fair balance between twisties and straights.

The difference was only 0.05s - the coupe probably would have been 0.05s faster

The validity of any test is it's REPRODUCIBILITY.
As already mentioned, the M3 has DOMINATED the C63 in the vast majority of track tests...
