Not only did this M3 has problems getting off the line in the 400m sprint but it looked to have similar problems at the start of the race as well.

The M3 looks to have real issues getting all that power to the road at the start.

It is odd how a Nissan product always wins these challenges? Also how does the M3 post the fastest lap time be almost 1/2 a second but loose the race?

From the Video the M was stuck in traffic for the better part of the race. also you can see it posted its fastest lap on the last lap where it cleared all the cars except the Z. The on the other hand posted its fastest lap on lap 2.

Talking

In terms of 1/4 time, I think it has a lot to do with the driver. I watch Best Motoring every month and the guy who drove the 135i is the main, better driver of the show. Too bad they don't change cars and do a comparison. The same guy drove the M3 in the later race and was able to beat everyone except the Z because he was stuck in traffic. The M3 started from the last place on the grid to begin with.
