Very interesting. The paper suggests the GT3 is WAY better. Interesting how two professional drivers can prove, once again, that specs are bullshit once it's on the track. I'm impressed the BMW made the GTS even that close to the GT3. Way to go, BMW M!

I do think, however, the M3 was definitely aided by the M-DCT. I wonder, if the Porsche had a DCT, would it have been faster than 1-second? I think so... Give the BMW a manual, and it would have probably been another second slower.

I want to see Tiff driving the M3. She was drifting around that track, which is not good for track times.

My track knowledge might be a bit rusty, but why was she drifting when the objective was to get the quickest lap time?

I'm sure that is the topic at hand on the Porsche Forums...
