Remember that some of the cars are "nobbled" and others are "helped" to even out the field and improve the show. This isn't exactly like comparing stock road cars against each other.

the T3 was allowed more power to keep up with the field, so you cant exactly say its beating GTS's

Yeah it's good that it's winning but it's true that all the cars are tuned or detuned to make the competition even.

On that note I wonder if the BA GT has any extra power. I think with 100kg more than the TE50, 40kw wont make that much of a difference.
