Cool M3 vs Scirocco R race car - "follow me lap" on the Nordschleife racetrack

Hi guys,

I posted many onboard laps here but this one is "special".
A good friend of mine kept the pedal to the metal in his Volkswagen
and followed me through traffic.

What car is it?
It's basically a VW Scirocco R racecar.
Power in the range of 340HP and a lot of torque.
It's ~250kg/ 550lbs lighter than my M3 and
runs on the same 265/35-18 Cup tires.
The weight difference is really worth a lot.
He has less power but the difference is very minor.
Just on the really long straights the M3 can move away.

Have fun and enjoy watching

I've also followed a Scirocco cup car here in shanghai f1 circuit and it was my first time spinning out due to trying my best to follow the lines of cup car at turn 7 into turn 8, then i realized the weight difference was grossly larger than I anticipated and rear stepped out due to weight transfer. I usually brake in middle of the transition between turns to load the front tires a bit but did not do so since the cup car did not (it doesn't need to with less weight and much more tuned suspension) that and coupled with a decreasing elevation change. It was still fun trying to chase it though

Wow, great video.
Sirocco is always a favorite. The new Golf R supposed to be a brawler with 300hp mated to a 6 speed manual.

That slow speed turn when you get practically sideways while making a pass is ridiculous. WOW! Thanks for sharing.

Great to see how a lighter car with less power can keep up with your already stripped M3..
I hope BMW will release some "Club" versions of the future M3/M4 Enough with heavy M cars!!!
That pic is awesome
