In terms of which is or isn't quicker, on such a small track with lets face it similarly powerful cars in terms of PTWR RWD etc... it's never going to be that different, you'd need a longer track like Silverstone or Spa not just more laps to get a better reflection of the difference.

Exactly.

But if you want to see proper fast times for this circuit........

But bear in mind these cars are 2-3 times more than the price of an M3/4.

Honestly I couldn't care about which is faster round there. I've driven Llandow enough times to know that it's not really worth worrying about times. You'd be quite surprised with the time I set in a Fiesta 1.25 Festival round there

What annoys me is the sloppy presentation of the video. Why not explain what modes he uses and why - rather than leave everyone to wonder? It's not like it's the first time Sutcliffe has met this criticism yet they always dismiss it.

As said, at least for once he's going to like a BMW because he has little option

No question he's a good wheelman but my respect for him as a journalist has gone out of the window - it's all about show these days. Shame.
