When first saw the video, I didn't know the M3 was supercharged, until I read the description. The 1M driver is a pretty good.

That's what i thought but i didn't see the RPM needle drop to zero, just stayed around the 1k mark. Oh well

If this is a G power M3; then it makes my statement even more convincing because this shouldn't even be a race. With this car; I should be able to beat that 1M and I have 0 track experience; if he couldn't do it; then it should tell you something.
3. The DCT should make this race even easier to win. The ring is the only place I've seen an M3 beat a 1M due to the long straights (something that can easily be fixed with a tune on the 1M).
Driver skill. Will still take the M3, loled hard at number 2.

he does suck... and i could drive better (doesn't mean i mean any pun intended, i'm just pointing out the facts) i'm glad the guy is enjoying his car the way it was meant to be driven and learning!

just saying! terrible lines, horrendous throttle control... i'm mean seriously the pedal isn't and on/off switch. good throttle control and knowing where to keep his rpm's alone could have kept him in front of the 1M even with his bad choice of lines

Yes, Im pretty sure the car has a fuel shut off that requires you to stop/start the car in such instances.
